A lovely young lady shared an inspiring story about a taxi driver. Nomvula Mayibongwe Nhlapo took to the #ImStaying group on Facebook to talk about a taxi driver who paid her fare when she had no money.
Nomvula said she just started a new job in Kempton Park after being unemployed for a while. She added that she had been hitchhiking to and from work for over a week. She struggled to find a ride home at her usual spot and decided to go to a nearby taxi rank.

There she sussed out a taxi driver who had the "friendliest demeanour". She then approached him and explained her situation to him. He responded with "OK mntanami get inside the taxi" before taking cash from his pocket to pay another taxi driver.
Her post partly read:
"If you normally use public transport, taxis to be specific, then you know never to mess with a taxi driver. So I've just started a new job in Kempton Park after being unemployed for a long time, so I've been hitchhiking to and from work since last week. So today I couldn't get a ride home from my usual spot so after standing there an hour and a half I decided to go to the rank and try my luck.
"As scared as I was I looked for a taxi driver who had the friendliest demeanour and I approached him and explained my situation to him that I had no money to return home he looked at me and said "OK mntanami get inside the taxi", he took cash from his pocket and paid the driver of the taxi that I was in."
