- Bi Phakathi shared a video via social media that has gone viral within Mzansi and the rest of the world
- The Good Samaritan met a man who was down on his luck and offered to sell Phakathi a bunch of avocados for R50
- Phakathi stunned the man by offering him so much cash that he had to refuse
Bi Phakathi is a well-known Good Samaritan who regularly assists those in need with cash donations, food, etc.
Although it is always heartwarming seeing him help the impoverished, a recent interaction was especially meaningful.
On this occasion, Phakathi met a man who was down on his luck and offered to sell a bunch of avocados for only R50 in return.
He revealed to Phakathi that he merely wanted some cash to provide a meal for his young family.
Phakathi accepted the offer and gave him a R100 note, resulting in the man jogging to the shop for change.
Instead of running away with the money, the hawker returned with Phakathi's change.
Perhaps impressed by the young man's honesty, Phakathi blessed him beyond belief with hundreds of rands.
Phakathi kept offering the man more and more R100 notes until the appreciative man asked him to stop.
The hawker's reaction was truly priceless and he continuously expressed his gratitude.
Briefly.co.za observed the social media impact after the video was shared via Facebook and the impact has been massive.
More than 163 000 people have liked the video and this includes Facebook users from across the globe.
Charlie Hobbin said,
"You are an inspiration to us all. Love from North Yorkshire United Kingdom."
Aaron Gilbert requested Phakathi's assistance from the USA:
"Hello how are please come to new Orleans Louisiana United States I am a chef I would love for you to help me cook for the homeless people down here under the bridge get in touch with me please. I've been trying to catch you going live and I finally caught you."
Lans Watson added:
"It shows a poor person in need can be fair and honest. He could have ran away with the 100 rand. But he came back and got his blessings. I felt a tear in my eye."
Previously, Briefly.co.za shared a different example of Phakathi's generosity.
On that occasion, his good deed won over an angry madala.
