"I need 500k God abeg."

In other news, sharing is caring, and caring about others when you can barely take care of yourself is even more amazing. But you know what they say - what goes around comes around, and this does not only apply to bad deeds but good deeds too.
Facebook user and #Stayer, Mmaphuti Molefe, proved this to be the case when she selflessly gave her last bit of cash to a stranger who did not have taxi fare. According to Maphuti, the unnamed lady wanted to pay the taxi driver when she reached her destination. However, in true taxi driver nature, he refused and was on the verge of kicking the lady out of the taxi.
Maphuti, who witnessed the whole thing unfold, stepped in and offered the little bit of money she was carrying. She then exchanged numbers with the desperate stranger. Later that day she received an EFT of R200 from the lady, with which she was able to buy some food.
