BI Phakathi recently shared a footage which shows how anger can be conquered by kindness. He encountered an unfriendly man on the road and upon talking to him further learnt that he was just hungry. Phakathi offered the man money for food and his anger immediately disappeared.
Phakathi shared the video on his Facebook account. The man revealed that his name was Mthembu. He had not eaten and was hungry. After Phakathi gave him money, he said that he would be buying food. He invited the Good Samaritan to visit him in his humble back room, if ever he is in the area again.
Social media users were inspired by the clip. Facebook user Gayle Sithole said:
