In other news, Mkhuseli 'Khusta' Jack posted a moving tale on Facebook of how stranger literally saved his life in 1973. He recalls how he was attacked on the way home from school and an ambulance rushed him to the hospital.
He was secretly admitted to the 'Whites only' section where the nurses stitched him up and discharged him before their superiors knew he was there. Wearing only a pair of khaki shorts, no shoes or shirt, he was freezing in the icy July weather.
A stranger who worked at the nearby petrol station, which was called Mobil Service Station back then, saw him and took him in, washed him, warned him up and dressed him in his own gown and let him sleep in his bed. Briefly.co.za learned that Mkhuseli has published a book and donated copies to the employees of the petrol station, now an Engen, in honour of the man who literally saved his life.
