Cape Town- Democratic Alliance MP Phumzile van Damme said her faith in humanity has been restored after an unknown good Samaritan picked up her wedding ring and handed it over to police.
The DA member, but now ex parliamentarian, took to her social media to explain how troubled she was, when she discovered she had lost her ring.
“I cried for a full hour after I couldn’t find my ring in my bag. After a day of bad news‚ I didn’t think I’d ever find my ring again‚ lamenting how unfair the world can be‚” she said.
She then said she went to the police station at Cape Town International Airport to report a missing ring, “I went to the police station at CTIA with little hope‚ but‚ there was my ring‚ someone had handed it in. Whoever you are‚ I wish you’d left your details so I could thank you in person. THANK YOU‚” she said.
Yesterday I lost my wedding band. I was devastated when I discovered. I went to the Police Station at CTIA with little hope, but, there was my ring, someone had handed it in. Whoever you are, I wish you’d left your details details so I could thank you in person. THANK YOU. ❤️🙏🏾

Some Twitter users wondered why she had taken her wedding band off;
I took my wedding band off many years ago when I was up to nefarious activities. I'm sure your reasons are much more innocent 😁😁
