"He is my reason for staying. His name is Vukani and he's from PMB. If you see him wave, say hi he's reinstated my faith in honest people. A brand new Samsung latest model left in error on a counter at Ma Baker Express just as the owner was jumping into his vehicle ready to leave."
"This beautiful soul with integrity saw the abandoned phone and brought it to the cashiers attention Vukani, you are a gem of a person. May you be blessed in abundance." wrote Hajara in the Facebook post.

"Thank you Vukani."
Meanwhile Briefly.co.za also wrote, how it is so wonderful to see the power South Africans have when they stand united. A young woman, Seluleko Qwabe, called on Mzansi for help to pay her tuition fees.
On Thursday, Qwabe detailed how she might be financially excluded from continuing her medicine studies at Wits because of the money they owe the higher education institution. She shared a photo of herself and another one of her family on Twitter. Qwabe made a desperate plea to anyone who is willing to help, even if they only donated R10 towards the R132 000 she owes.
The young lady decided to open a crowdfunding page and she has already received a lot of help from kind South Africans. Since launching the page, Qwabe already raised R18 400, Briefly.co.za gathered. According to her BackaBuddy page, the 22-year-old graduated with a degree in Biochemistry and Microbiology at the University of Zululand with 19 distinctions.
