Being kind costs nothing, and in a world full of cruelty being kind goes a long way. 22-year old beggar Sibongiseni Nkosi proved this to be true after his kindness changed his life for the better.
In a Facebook post shared by HOBO group ZA, the group's admin said that Sibongiseni, who fed himself by begging for cash at local street robots, helped Vic Camphor push his car after the vehicle had been experiencing some trouble.
Vic then remembered seeing Sibongiseni begging at the robots and decided to reward his helpful attitude with a job as a petrol attendant at his parents' Engen garage.
"22-year-old beggar Sibongiseni Nkosi helped push a car owned by Vic Campher, whose family owns a Engen petrol station.Vic recognised him as guy who begged at nearby traffic lights. Cut long story short, he is now trainee petrol attendant. Kindness helps." the post read.
The post received thousands of reactions from locals who agreed with the poster's sentiments - kindness certainly does pay. Here are some of their comments.
Ntipu Kenneth said:
"Kindness is a great weapon."
Thabile Moukangwe Tainly said:
"It's beautiful how they gave him something to rely on his daily basis instead of buying him lunch/giving him money."
While Mani Lukho had this to say:
"We salute good work, we must all follow suite where we can."
Briefly.co.za also reported, it's lockdown Level 2 and Whistle Girl is back! In various posts on social media, Whistle Girl can be seen breaking it down with - you guessed it - a whistle. Whistle Girl's real name is Renei Solana and she's been making waves since the 5th of March when Twitter user @ThaboT_style posted a video of her and her whistle; asking social media to help him find her.
In terms of recent posts, the video that went the most viral of her was uploaded by @SmaNdlelaZN last night. The video has gained over 250 000 views and over 13 000 likes. Although Mzansi loves Whistle Girl's moves and her overall vibe, many Saffa tweeps voiced their concern about the gathering she attended.
Not only was there a lack of social distancing but hardly any masks were visible. Many believe events such as these will bring back Level 5.
