Good Samaritan goes extra mile to return lost wallet to owner


A man took to social media to ask Twitter users' help in finding the rightful owner of a wallet he picked up. He ended up finding the owner and returned his wallet with all the money and personal possessions still inside.


On Saturday, a man, who was identified by his Twitter handle @Thabang2308, took to the social media platform to find the owner of a wallet he picked up. "Guys I found a wallet next to Maponya Dube Shoprite in Soweto, it has R500, two driver's licenses and Capitec Bank Card. His name is S Sangweni. He must be staying around Dube, Meadowlands, Mofolo and Orlando West. Please retweet until we find the owner," he wrote on social media.

Two days later, @Thabang2308 shared an update on his Twitter page, letting tweeps know he found the man whose wallet he picked up. "I have found him, thanks to @CapitecBankSA Dube branch, now I can sleep peacefully. Thanks to you all for retweeting and coming up with solutions," the update read.
