'He said ma'am you can't run out of petrol on the N2, and threw in R100'

Nkosikho Mbele

Young woman Monet van Deventer describes petrol attendant Nkosikho Mbele's generous help to prevent her running out of fuel on N2.

Monet Van Deventer's story has gone viral and she chats to Kieno Kammies about how she was inspired to create a crowdfunding campaign to help the kind petrol attendant Nkosikho Mbele who saved her from running out of fuel.

She says she was on her way to work on Thursday morning on the N2 in Cape Town, needed petrol and pulled in to the nearest filling station.

As soon as I stopped I realised I had forgotten my card at home.

She searched for a few minutes before giving up.

But since my petrol light was on, he was extremely worried, and he said 'Ma'am you can't run out of petrol on the N2. I will just throw in R100 and then you can bring the money.

Monet Van Deventer

He paid for her petrol and she left.

After I left, I realised how amazing it was, because he didn't even ask for my name or number. He was just doing it out of kindness.

She decided to share her story on social media wanting to draw attention to something positive.

I wanted to share it with my friends on Facebook, and I never thought it would go viral.

She returned to the petrol station with the money for Nkosikho Mbele.

He was so surprised to have me back. He thought I would only be back later in the week.

I asked him why he was so kind to me, a complete stranger, and he said 'Ma'am I am a believer.' And I think that is the message of the story. He said he does not want the story to be about him but about God.
