The Cape Town petrol ‘good samaritan’ attendant Nkosikho Mbele inspired millions of South Africans when he helped a customer who forgot her bank card at home and needed fuel. The story trended after it was shared by the customer on social media.

In light of Nkosikho’s ubuntu, a donation account was made to repay and award his kindness. The account has since received over R450K which is said to will help his family and start some charity work as he always felt a need to give.
His employer, the Shell company was lambasted by many in social media after the Country Chair of the company, Hloniphizwe Mtolo announced that they will donate about R500 thousand to a charity of Mbele’s choice.
“I’ve seen the good news and I wanted to call you directly and congratulate you for the good work that you have done”, says Hloniphizwe Mtolo on a phone call to Nkhosikho.
“In recognition of what you have done, as Shell, we have decided to respond to what the public has done and donate half a milions rands to a charity that you will choose”,
Shell has also promised to nominate Nkosikho Mbele in next year’s awards.
