- However, he did what was right and ended up returning it to the rightful owner
The world needs more people like Patson Mandla. The honest man took to Facebook to share the story of how he did what was right despite his circumstances.
Mandla was at Auto and General Park when he found a wallet full of cash in the men's restroom. He revealed that for a moment he was tempted to take the money because he was broke.
However, his integrity stopped him from doing it and instead he made sure the wallet got back to its rightful owner.
He captioned the post:
"Just found this in our male bathroom, I must say I was tempted with the money because I am broke but then I remembered that we should be known for our love and good deeds! I then took it to the security guys... Luckily one of the securities knows the owner so he'll be in contact with him. My work is done here, I'm out."
Take a look at the post below:
South Africans were inspired by Mandla's honesty and they applauded him online.
