A humble merchant had his life changed by none other than BI Phakathi. The inspirational hero came across an elderly man riding a bicycle. Attached to the bicycle was a range of cleaning equipment from mops to brooms and even a few buckets.
Phakathi soon got his hands on a mop and a broom for a reasonable R120 giving the person R200 to cover the cost. Stress overcame the man when he realised that he did not have enough change for Phakathi. Being only R10 short, Phakathi reached into his pockets to see if he had R10 on him.

Phakathi's post gained over 220 000 views on Facebook:
