BI Phakathi moved by honest poor man, blesses him with R640

In other news, Briefly News reported that BI Phakathi met a poor man and gave him money to buy something to eat and revealed that he thought he would never come back with the R20. However, the honest guy managed to come back with the food and change.

In his words, the young man even confessed himself: “It’s not always easy to find honest people.”

He said his name is Jacques and stays in the streets but he gets help from generous people. He continued to say sometimes he pays R25 for a place to stay and that’s why he’s hustling on the streets.

Jacques told BI Phakathi that he was once stabbed for a mere R7 and decided to be an honest man ever since. BI later gave him R640 to buy food because he was faithful.
