Khaya Dlanga Does Good Deed For Uber Driver. Uber drivers head to different locations ensuring that people that need rides get a ride sufficiently.
Uber drivers head to different locations ensuring that people that need rides get a ride sufficiently. We don’t know what they go through though in ensuring that we get from point A to B in time with no complications. Khaya Dlanga’s good deed let him know what one Uber driver was going through.
The former YouTuber and author explained how he let the Uber driver fill up the tank as he finished filling R80. “My Uber driver who picked me up from the Airport in Durban stopped at the garage to fill up . He poured R80 worth of gas. Just before he started his car, I told him I wanted to fill his tank for him. Him: How much? Me: However much it costs. Him: Are you sure? Me: Yes.” The driver called the Petrol attendant to come and fill the vehicle, whereby the man reminded the driver that he already filled with R80.
“I see that he is chocking up and he starts to cry. Now I am [feeling] awkward and I say it’s ok. He makes a joke…,” says Khaya Dlanga. The man told him that he was about ask him if he could pay in cash because he had no money. “Then he tells me that he was about to ask if I could pay cash instead of by card because he absolutely had no money. At some point, he parked his car and started asking people for money because he didn’t have enough money gas. He had no luck, no one had money to give him.”
The man went on to say that on his last trip he was given R100 as someone paid in cash, which resulted in him getting the R80 petrol. He added that he gives the owner of the vehicle R3000 and the rest he keeps for himself. “He started driving Uber last week. The owner of the car R3000 every week and he can keep whatever he makes thereafter.” He told Khaya Dlanga that he made about R3200 last week which meant he was left with R200. On top of filling up petrol for the driver, Khaya Dlanga also sent him money. “I asked him for his number and eWalleted him some money. The point I want to drive across is that let’s do what we can if we are able to for these Uber drivers because some of them are going through the most,” says Khaya Dlanga.
