A local woman has taken to social media to thank the kind stranger who stopped to lend a hand when the car she was driving broke down along a busy freeway. Amy Grobler had been travelling alone with her three-year-old son when she felt her tyre start wobbling.
The young mother pulled over to the safety lane and soon watched as a cloud of smoke surrounded her vehicle. With no cars in sight and alone with a toddler, a nervous Amy decided she'd call a friend for help.
As she got off the phone with her friend, a truck driver- known only as "Jabulani" - stopped behind the young mom and helped change the punctured tyre.
"I was so grateful, he remained calm and was so sweet and humble whilst I was crying. His name is Jabulani. Jabulani, I was in such shock that I only asked for your name. Please know I am forever grateful for you, thank you for helping me and my boy."
Social media users were eager to show Jabulani some well-deserved love too. Read some of their comments below:
David Lawrence said:
"Jabulani you brought much joy to this young woman's life. Halala halala. Siyabonga my friend we the people will be led out of the Devil's cauldron we live in right now."

Meanwhile, Briefly News previously reported a midwife was spotted transporting an expectant woman in labour on a shabby-looking wooden door to a clinic has been celebrated for her dedication and commitment to her work.
The midwife was captured with some residents transporting an expectant mother in labour on the makeshift wooden door to a distant clinic in the Sekyere East District in the Ashanti Region.
The cocoa-growing area where the incident occurred lacks basic social amenities, including potable water and electricity. The absence of well-resourced health facilities coupled with bad roads in the area compelled the midwife and some of the residents to use the wooden door to transport the pregnant woman.
In a Facebook post by Wendy Boatemaa Ofori, the woman, apparently named Dela, has been showered with accolades for going the extra mile to deliver healthcare to residents in the area. Heartbreaking photos of the incident were shared on social media and the midwife has been celebrated for her bravery and dedication.
