- Video footage of the heartwarming moment went viral via social media
- The video revealed the desperate situation, but also the gratitude for Phakathi's good deeds
Bi Phakathi has earned a reputation for being one of the most generous men in Mzansi.
The kind Samaritan regularly blesses those in need and his videos often go viral, with South Africans heaping praise on him.
On this occasion, Phakathi took to the streets to provide food and drink to a large group of hungry men.
The footage showed Phakathi handing out loaves upon loaves of bread and the men grew in numbers.
Although their hunger was evident, Phakathi still managed to get them to take a minute to bow their heads in prayer.
Briefly.co.za was astonished to see that Phakathi's video attracted nearly 50 000 likes since it was shared on Friday.
Steven Siziba said,
"You are making difference in the country everyday wish some people may see this we need people like this to rule out country God bless you so much I'm touched you have a right to go and enjoy out side of the country enjoy your money but you choose to help people who are in a need."
Nomsa Simelane-Lankhosi added,
"People are busy slashing each other in churches instead of going out there and do good to God's people.BI this is the gospel of Jesus Christ, God bless you bhuti."
Sandra Stewart shared love from abroad:
"May God always have you in his heart. You are one of the kindest men I know. Your heart and soul shines on everyone. Much respect from New Zealand."
Just last week, Briefly.co.za reported on Phakathi blessing a man who sold him a bunch of avocado pears.
The desperate hawker merely wanted a R50 in return, but Phakathi gave him hundreds in cash.
