Earlier, Briefly.co.za reported that 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.
In other news, BI Phakathi could not be more loved by people across the globe. He recently bumped into an old friend and helped him as best as he could. At first, George 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.
