South Africans have again been touched by the random acts of kindness being doled out by the faceless hero, BI Phakathi.
But these acts are anything but small and have cast the giving hand of the man only known as BI into the league of Good Samaritans.
In his latest spree, captured in a video published on his BI Phakathi Facebook page, the local benefactor stumbled across an old man sitting alone at what appears to be a busy shopping complex.

"Act of Kindness, he wanted milk for the bread and this happened."
After exchanging salutations, the man, who identifies himself as Reynard, humbly asks that BI assist him with a pint of milk for his bread, which he then displays in a confirmatory manner.
BI then offers to go and get the milk, but before dotting off into the nearby store, asks if there was anything more he could get Reynard.
In the footage recorded using his phone, BI, on his return, hands Weynard his milk. Seconds later, having initially handed Weynard what looks like R30 rand, starts dishing out R100 notes.
At this point, Reynard appears visibly shocked, and then he asks:
"Is it my birthday today? ... Is it my birthday?"
Reynard almost freezes in shock as BI continues handing him R30 notes. At one point, Reynard is heard saying:
"I can't believe it."
BI responds by telling him to place the money safely in his pocket while repeating the words:
"It's all love," attempting to clear the now revived man's confusion.

BI Phakathi blesses desperate homeless man with money and food
In another recent act of kindness, BI Phakathi came to the aid of a homeless man named Martin who was asking for food.
Briefly News previously reported that BI asked him if he needed more food and if he or someone else could cook it for him.
Martin was shocked when BI started handing him hundred rand notes and he repeatedly thanked BI, calling him "my brother."
Phakathi shared the video on Facebook where it got over 137 000 views. BI then really shocked the man when he gave him a massive bag full of food and groceries.
