Earlier, Briefly.co.za reported that petrol attendants in South Africa are known for being the kindest, most helpful people you could ever meet. Mojalefa proved just that when he helped an unknown lady who had no petrol and was in a rush.
Olefile Olifant shared that on 25 November she had to pick her daughter up from créche during her lunch break. On her way home, she realised that her petrol tank was almost empty. She stopped at three petrol stations to get help but their ATMs and speed point machines were not working.
She arrived at the Engen garage at Neserhof where she met the amazing Mojalefa. Mojalefa had R70 on him which he used to fill Olefile's tank. She was able to make her way home and then back to work to finish her shift thanks to his kind act.
