- BI Phakhati has done it again and changed an honest person's life
- He trusted an old man with R100 and repaid him with over R1 000 after hearing his story
- Facebook users praised BI Phakathi for his generosity and the good work he is doing
BI Phakathi, South Africa's very own good Samaritan, is at it again helping those who are less fortunate. He uploaded a video to Facebook which starts with a mad chase after a torn R10 note. He ended up blessing the man with over R1 000 after learning what happened to him.
He returns it to a homeless man called Basil and asked him what he wanted to do with the money. Basil revealed that he wanted to buy a cup of coffee with it. Phakathi gave Basil R100 and asked told him to buy a coffee and bring back his change.
Basil returned with the coffee but said he had to use the last of his coins as they did not have change for a R100 note.
Phakathi told Basil to keep the R100 and proceeded to give him a further R500 and told him to buy himself some food.
Basil protested that he was taking all his money, Phakathi told him not to worry and that it was his money now.
This is where the story takes a different turn. It turns out Basil has been injured and needed to see a doctor. Phakathi inspected his wounds and gave him another R500 to see a doctor.
A truly amazing story of how BI Phakathi has helped another honest person living on the streets.
Facebook users praised Phakhati for his generosity:

"Ok.Now that I have stopped crying,...I can write my thoughts. Probably so many people are afraid of him & consider him ALOT more special in what he needs. Here is a man who IS special, but in many ways!! He IS special in his needs,...but special in other ways, as well! He has a good heart, and could not believe your kindness, BI ! I pray no one steals his money( if people were watching!), that he doesn't lose it out of his pockets,.. but most of all he uses it for himself for shelter& a doctor!! When people are not used to kindness,....they are often in shock when kindness is shown! Let us all pray for him, that he is able to do the things he is supposed to do for himself!!!AMEN!!..xoxo OH!! And BI, blessings to you for listening,..really listening,...so you were able to understand his speech! This meeting of you both touched my heart!! xoxo"
