Nomvula says she just started a new job in Kempton Park after being unemployed for a while. She says she had been hitchhiking to and from work for over a week. She struggled to find a ride home at her usual spot and decided to go to a nearby taxi rank.
There she sussed out a taxi driver who had the "friendliest demeanour". She then approached him and explained her situation to him. He responded with "OK mntanami get inside the taxi" before taking cash from his pocket to pay another taxi driver.
