On Thursday, a social media user, Benjamin Zondo, took to the #ImStaying Facebook page to share how BI Phakathi inspired him to help others.
He revealed he saw a man standing by the window of a fast-food restaurant after he ordered breakfast.
Zondo said he approached the man and offered to buy him food. He wrote:
"So something touched me and I walked to him asked if he wanted to eat so he can order his breakfast also and we sat together, having good conversation."
The young entrepreneur added he watched videos of BI Phakathi and was inspired by the good work he does.
"I felt that just liking and commenting on his posts is not enough."
Take a look at his post below:
South Africans thanked Zondo for his act of kindness in the comment section.
Diane Smith commented:
"You will be blessed. You gave someone a meal and he will be comfortable today and have a smile on his face because he can have faith in humanity again. I wish there was a way to help everyone."
Angelique Goldsworthy wrote:
"Thank you for sharing your breakfast and your heart. God knows your motives, SO keep practising love in action and ignore the haters."
Alan Stein said:
"A little bit of kindness to a fellow human being is the best way to heal the bad things in this world."
In his post, Zondo said he was inspired by BI Phakathi - a Good Samaritan who has made it his life's mission to help others.
YEN.com.gh previously reported BI Phakathi posted a video on social media which showed him helping a young man who was traveling without food or money. The video shows the kind man asking the traveler where he was headed and a bit of his back story.
He learned the young man, who identified himself as Ian, was going to Heidelberg after his previous employer failed to pay his salary for two months.
However, he had a tough time on his trip because he had no money for food or transport and people refused to stop and help him. Staying true to himself, BI Phakathi gave him more than enough money to buy food and to get to where he is going.
