702 caller Ndada says the petroleum company was going to donate the money to charity anyway they should have done it quietly.

28-year-old petrol attendant Nkosikho Mbele inspired many South Africans when he paid R100 out of his pocket to top up the tank of a motorist who stopped for fuel but had forgotten her bank card.

Through Backabuddy crowdfunding campaign, South Africans have raised almost R500 000 which he said the Backabuddy should administer the funds for him.

Shell jumped and the bandwagon and said they will be donating R500,000 to a charity of Mbele because of his good deed.

Should Shell give Nkosikho Mbele the R500,000 they say they are donating to charity or not?

Callers on the Eusebius McKaiser Show shared their views on the matter.

The petrol attendant should get the money from Shell then he has R500,000 from Shell and the other money form the crowdfunding. He must get an accountant or an advisor from Shell and must sit down and say your children, are going to go to University and you are going to need that million rands? You are going to need another house, and you are going to need a car. Please give that money to him; it is he who deserves it.

Ndaba says Shell should have donated the money quietly to avoid the backlash.

I think Shell should have done something for the guy in terms of career development. Like everybody is saying they were going to donate it anyway its a tax right off. They should have done it quietly like they usually do.

Ndaba, Caller

This guy was doing a good deed and he got half a million rand and Shell is giving half a million rand to charity why can't we just leave it at that. Why must we now go deeper? We just love to moan in South Africa.
