Stranded woman passes BI Phikathi’s test, rewarded with R3 000 in cash

In a similar story that involves cash, Briefly News reported that South Africa's faceless philanthropist BI Phakathi had struck again. This time he used a little subterfuge to choose his next "victim". He found a family struggling with a car that had broken down and asked the woman for R2 so that he could buy some water.

The lady didn't hesitate for a second and immediately handed BI Phakathi a coin. BI went to the shop to buy the water and returned to let the family know that they had passed the test. He offered her R50 but she said that it was not necessary and she refused to take it.

The family, a husband, wife and little girl, were then surprised when BI handed her a wad of cash. She counted the notes and broke into tears again when she reached R1 000. BI then handed her another pile of notes, she counted them and stopped at R2 000.
