Many South Africans are no strangers to tough times. Losing money can be a very heartbreaking experience while randomly picking it up can bring so much joy. This is why giving the money back to the person who lost it can take a great amount of decency - a quality possessed by only a few.
When a car guard named Thabang, who found a stranger's money laying in a parking lot, returned the money to the stranger, he was dubbed a hero. Franco Mbhu took to Facebook to share the story of how he had lost his R600 cash in the parking lot at Boulder shopping mall in Midrand.
"Here is my hero of the day. Earlier in the day this gentleman Thabang, a car guard from Boulders shopping mall in Midrand. I accidentally dropped R600 in the parking lot when I was removing my phone from my pocket without realising on the spot, then as I was driving out the mall I realised that my pocket was empty, no funds nothing.
"I immediately I went back where I was [parked], fortunately this champ was still around. I then politely asked him if he didn't see any money around the area because I've just lost my R600. Unexpectedly Thabang said to me, "I got it bro." I couldn't believe that people of this calibre are still available around us."

"Dear friends help me to say thank you to Thabang, if it was somebody else it could have been a totally different story. Not only that he gave me the money back but for the spirit of ubuntu and faithfulness that is in Thabang. Thank you brother. I really appreciate it. You're my hero. May God bless you abundantly," he finished.
Facebook users did as asked and joined in to applaud Thabang for his good-hearted ways. Read some of their comments below.

Meanwhile, in other Briefly.co.za news, Sikiru Adeyemi, a smart 14-year-old student in Nigeria, designed a beautiful house making use of waste items. In an exclusive interview, he revealed how he laboured to complete the model, stating that it took him five months to get it done.
Adeyemi’s interest in developing things built up at an early age. He had formed the habit of picking materials considered to be waste and storing them in the house. This at first had infuriated his mother, who felt he was going to turn her house into a dumpsite. However, he explained to her that he wanted to build things and she softened.
The house design he came up with is a two-storey building with an interlocking floor design. He also had wires installed on the fence and carved out a beautiful gate for it. The house also had tiles for flooring as well as pillars to support and beautify it.
