Nkosikho Mbele’s gesture of Ubuntu, helping a young women get home safely by lending her R100 to fuel her car, has earned him a nomination to represent South Africa at the Shell Global Service Excellence Awards next year.
The regional awards takes place July in Zanzibar, Tanzania where Mbele has also been invited to attend.
Shell South Africa has congratulated Mbele for his kind gesture and donated R500 000 to a charity of his choice.
“I am so happy that I am nominated for awards. Being recognised by Shell South Africa means a lot. I still cannot believe this is happening only because of R100 indeed it is a work of God. Going to Tanzania will be a great experience for me, and the fact that I nominated for next year's representative South Africa means a lot,” he said.
Mbele has said he was overwhelmed at how his gesture has been received by thousands of people.
