In other inspiring SA news, Briefly.co.za recently reported on the country's faceless hero, BI Phakathi, who recently bumped into an old friend. At first, George, Phakathi's old friend, did not seem to recognise himself in a video Phakathi showed him.
Eventually, he did and Phakathi took him on a small adventure. George had a haircut and shave before Phakathi took him out for a meal. Following the meal, Phakathi took him clothes shopping before he handed some cash over to George.
He told George to use the money for food when he is not around. Peeps enjoyed the adorable exchange and shared their love and thanks for Phakathi in the comments section.
