Cape petrol attendant lauded after graciously paying for woman’s fuel

"He then told me: 'Ma'am you can't run out of petrol on the N2. I'll throw in R100 and then you can just bring back my R100 whenever you are near again."

A petrol attendant has received wide praise after he lent a woman, who couldn’t find her bank card, R100 for petrol.

The woman, Monet van Deventer, stopped at a Cape petrol station to fill her car only to realise she had forgotten her card at home.

“While searching for my card, a young man washed my windscreen in the meantime. After a search, I told him I couldn’t find my card and would not be able to fill up.

“He then told me: ‘Ma’am you can’t run out of petrol on the N2. I’ll throw in R100 and then you can just bring back my R100 whenever you are near again.”

Deventer was touched by the selfless offer. Nkosikho did not ask for her number or any insurance that she would bring the money back to him, he just asked her to drive safely.

Later, Deventer travelled back to the same station to thank the man and give him his money back, she asked him why he had helped her and trusted that she would bring his money back to him.

Nkosikho just replied, “Ma’am I am a believer.”

It was a simple act of kindness but meaningful enough to leave a lasting impression not only on Deventer but on South Africans across the country.

“Thank you Nkosikho for your beautiful heart. You have given me hope for our country today. May Jesus bless your life!” said Deventer in a post on social media.
