- A man, Wandile Ntuli, took to Twitter on Tuesday to share his good Samaritan moment
- Ntuli revealed a stranger accidentally paid R9 000 into his bank account and was understandably upset about the mistake
- Instead of keeping the money for himself, Ntuli returned it to the rightful owner and inspired Mzansi
There are still good people left in the world and Wandile Ntuli is one of them. On Tuesday, the young man took to social media to share how he stuck to his moral code even if it meant giving back money.
Ntuli revealed a large sum of money was paid into his account by mistake. A complete stranger accidentally transferred R9 000 into his bank account.
However, instead of going on a shopping spree, Ntuli did what was right when the rightful owner contacted him.
Taking to Twitter on Tuesday, Ntuli posted screenshots showing his honesty and he captioned the tweet:
"I sent it back guys."
Take a look at the post below:
The post quickly went viral and South Africans applauded Ntuli for doing the right thing instead of keeping the money.
Twitter user, @Mahlatse_mogale, commented:
"God bless you Wandile. What you did is a very great gesture."
Another tweep, @jeany0509, added:
"Just followed you for being a good person."
Ditebogo Kgothatso, @ditebogomailula, wrote:
"God will bless you for this. You just gained a follower (me)."
While a lot of people praised Ntuli for his honesty, they admitted that they would not have done the same.
Social media user, @Hey_Lue, said:
"I wasn't even gonna read that text or any SMS for that matter, my phone was gonna be off immediately while I'm making withdrawal inside that bank."
It is not the first time an honest person went viral. Briefly.co.za previously reported a man, Peter Gavran, who hails from Croatia, wanted to find a cupboard for his new apartment in Germany. He then purchased a second-hand one online.
Peter and a friend visited the seller’s house in the Werden borough of the city of Essen to fetch the cupboard. He was quoted by saying:
“When a friend and I came for the furniture, we didn't notice anything strange. Even the man we bought the furniture from helped us carry it to the car because it's massive."
However, when they had carried the piece of furniture up the stairs, Peter heard something rolling around inside. Upon inspection, he found family albums and 25 000 euros - which is about R512 000 - stuffed in several envelopes. At first he did not know what to do but he ended up phoning the family who had sold him the cupboard and returned the money.
