- A heart-warming video which shows the kindness displayed by a motorist has been trending on social media
- The motorist came across a recycling worker who was struggling to push his load up a steep hill
- Although he risked damaging his own vehicle, the motorist went the extra mile to push the man uphill
A great example of Ubuntu has been doing the rounds via social media on Monday.
In the video, a mysterious motorist can be seen lending a helping man to a recycling worker.
After witnessing the worker's struggles to push his load uphill, the kindhearted motorist risked his own vehicle to assist the man.
Using his SUV vehicle, the motorist nudges the heap of plastic down the road to get it to the intended destination.
South Africa Live shared the video via Facebook and Briefly.co.za noted the impact that it's already had.
Many lavished praise on the considerate motorist as well as the hard-working collector.
Precious Pearl feels the video epitomised what South Africa stands for:
"There is love in Mzansi. That's why the devil is attacking SA he sees that the Love people have for each other he can never win."
Sheila Goose heaped praise on the recycling worker and the Good Samaritan:
"At least he help his family to survive he work hard for the little money he get. For others its easier to steal then to work for what they want and need. Who ever that person was who helped that man i salute you. You are a true hero. May God Bless you every minute of everyday."
Schalk W Van Heerden expressed a contrasting view:
"Not allowed to be on the road, only licensed a vehicle are allowed in the roadway."
However, others hit back by defending the actions of the worker.
Tom Shamrock responded to Schalk W Van Heerden:
"As I fellow 61 mechanized vet I feel ashamed of your comment, these guys do this city a huge favour, all the plastic they collect will end up in our already polluted rivers otherwise."
Bryan Sibanda echoed the positive sentiments:
"One in a million. May God bless you."
