South African hero BI Phakathi is still changing lives. In a recent video shared to Facebook, Phakathi purchased all the stock being sold by a local street vendor and then gave it back to her. Mam Dlamini was walking around with her goods when Phakathi approached her.
Mam Dlamini had peanuts, bananas and pears packed neatly into a plastic bowl which was placed on top of her head. Phakathi started by purchasing the peanuts but then asked Mam Dlamini how much all of her stock is going for.
She revealed to Phakathi that she makes between R300 and R400 a day by selling her goods. After asking Mam Dlamini to count her goods, Phakathi handed over R1 000 and told her to keep her stock.
Mam Dlamini graciously thanked Phakathi for his wonderful gift. Smiling from ear to ear, she wiped a stray tear as the video came to an end. Take a look at the clip below:
Phakathi stated that the above video was shared in an attempt to inspire others to support and tip mothers who are doing their best to sell goods and survive. The comments section could not be more positive as peeps thanked Phakathi for his kind deed. Read some of the responses below:

Sandile Mike Ndlovu added:

Briefly.co.za recently reported on Phakathi after he helped a homeless lady. BI met up with the woman who was selling pencils in the street.
Under the guise of wanting to buy a few pencils from her, BI sparks a conversation with her around how much money she makes from selling the pencils. He also asks about her living conditions - to which she reveals that she is homeless.
Not long thereafter, she shows BI the humble place behind a supermarket that she and her partner call home. Presumably moved by the pair's living conditions, BI asks the woman whether she would like him to help change her life.
