South African well-known philanthropist BI Phakati did it again. Phakathi gave a man who had faith R5 000.

In a video he posted on Facebook, Phakathi is on the street with bread and a piece of paper written "R 5000." However, he ensured the paper was hidden as he sold the bread to random people in the street for R10.

He encountered a guy who came from the shop to buy a few items and told him he was selling the bread for ten rands. The man said he unfortunately didn't have it. Phakathi lowered the price and said it was fine even if he gave him five rands. The man also didn't have that.

The philanthropist moved to the next person, a random elderly man. The man asked Phakathi why did he buy the bread in the first place if he didn't want it. BI cooked up a story, saying he lost his money and wanted to sell the bread to go home.

Random man buys the bread from Phakathi

The man buys the story and the bread. He doesn't notice what is written on the bread. As he is going, Phakathi calls him and asks him if he saw what is written on the bread. Only then does the man notice.

Phakathi gave the man R5 000. He was in disbelief and thought the philanthropist was pranking him. Phakathi said he was testing his faith. The man was thankful.
