Two Capetonian Good Samaritans are the subject of a recent crowdfunding campaign.
This came about after they handed a vehicle in to police after finding the keys in the car door.
The actions of Lehlohonolo Sesedinyane, 30, and Peaceful Ndlangamandla, 27, had at first baffled the police, who “threatened to arrest them for driving the car without the owner’s consent”.
On a Friday night last month vehicle owner Craig Barrowman forgot his key in the car door outside the Dias Tavern in Zonnebloem in the CBD. After realizing that his car was missing, he went to the local police station where an officer told him he had the key and that his car was parked across the road.
Sesedinyane and Ndlangamandla are struggling financially and have ambitions of starting their own small retail business. So Barrowman started crowdfunding on Backabuddy to thank them for their kindness and honesty.
These two men are such great, positive role models and I just want to thank them for what they did for me. I hope in doing so to help them build a better life as they are both struggling financially and only just surviving.
“I hope this will be a kickstart to lift them out of poverty, and also give their self-esteem a boost,” Barrowman said.
