Man takes hawker out for lunch
Meanwhile, YEN.com.gh previously reported that a man had taken a hawker out for lunch with part of his salary.
In a post seen on the Facebook page of TroTro Diaries, the man's account has been shared, highlighting his quest to continue the customer-client relationship his grandmother had with the physically challenged man.
The good Samaritan revealed his grandmother was a regular customer of the hawker - Bra Amos - though others came to her for her to buy their products.
While on his way from the bank one day, the man recalled seeing Amos sitting quietly under a shed.
