Ulricah Modiba took to Facebook's #ImStaying to share a heartfelt post about a taxi driver who displayed true kindness and generosity towards her and her young son, who embarked on a long trip.
"I had an #ImStaying moment on the 4th of January this year. I was travelling with my 5-year-old son from Limpopo to Gauteng, I was a bit stressed cos I had to pay R600 taxi fee for my son and me.
"When we got to the taxi it was not full, we were 10 in the Quantum, my son is short in height when the driver collected money, then he asked me how old is your son and I replied he's 5. I gave him the R600, he looked at my stressed face and said "Boy take this money and go buy a schoolbag and shoes," he gave him back the R300."
