Thekelo Ramatsetse was on his way to work when he saw a wallet on the seat where a fellow commuter had just been sitting; he tracked the owner down using social media.


Pretoria, South Africa – Thekelo Ramatsetse was on his way to work in Menlyn when he got the chance to do a random act of kindness. A fellow commuter rushed out the taxi leaving his wallet on the seat. Thekelo saw it and picked it up.

When he got to the office, he opened it up and asked people on Twitter for help tracking down the man it belonged to. Dumisani Genesis Nkosi must have felt so worried it was missing. It contained all his cards as well as R210.00.

As soon as Thekelo shared the post on Twitter, someone contacted him to say that they knew Dumisani. The helpful stranger connected the guys, and they met up later that day.

“He asked me to DM him my digits so that he could give them to him to WhatsApp Me. Dumisani then contacted me on WhatsApp to ask my whereabouts. He works about a kilometre away from where I work. He then came over to collect the wallet.”

Thekelo did an incredible thing reuniting Dumisani with his wallet. We have all at some point had the stress of having to cancel cards and start all over again. This random act of kindness has inspired so many people.
