- A woman went to the police station to request a permit
- Her father passed away and the permit was required to attend his funeral
- Although it was an extremely difficult time for her, she was blown away by the excellent service she received from one of the police officers
Patrichia Taljaard entered a police station with a heavy heart, but exited with a smile on her dial.
Patrichia's father recently lost his life and she headed to the police station to request a permit.
Under lockdown regulations, a permit is required to attend the service and Patrichia and her sister headed to the Welkom police station on the day of the funeral.
It was understandably an extremely challenging time, but the service rendered by officer Mamoya Moloi left Patrichia speechless.
In her touching post via the #ImStaying Facebook group, Patrichia shared a message for Mamoya:
"It was the quickest, most pleasant service we had experienced in quite a while. Mamoya, you are a part of this group as well, and I would just like to thank you for making me forget my sadness and brightening our day. Keep up the good work, it's people like you, that make me proud to be called South African."
Dian Mulder said,
"Absolutely! Why cant all of them be like you? Thanks to you you are a real star and you set a great example for the police force."
Shirley Dianne Wiseman added,
"So awesome that kindness is extended by total strangers at time like this. So sorry about your Dad."
Goodman Ngubane responded,
"God bless your family Patrichia Taljaard, as well as Mamoya for "not rubbing salt in your wounds". May his soul rest in peace."
Meanwhile, Briefly.co.za previously reported that a video was shared online showing Fikile Mbalula confronting a motorist.
The minister asked for a permit and once a traffic officer confirmed the motorist's car had an expired licence disk, he told cops to arrest him and impound the vehicle.
