Renowned makeup artist Muzi Zuma took to social media to share an inspiring story of how his mother encouraged their help to obtain her degree.
In a couple of Twitter post on Thursday, Zuma shared the story of their help, who is set to graduate from UNISA with a degree in a few months.
"Our Helper (uAunti) who’s been with us for 14 years, received her final results today. My mother forced her to get her Matric & continued to register & pay for her to study at UNISA. She’s passed & completed all her modules. Her reaction brought tears to us all," Zuma captioned the first post.
"She will in September graduate with a Bachelor of Commerce in Public Procurement Management. This also means that she’s now an Employee at the eThekwini Municipality as all they were waiting for was the “Degree complete” nod. This also means she’s leaving us #BitterSweet," he added.
The post gathered a positive reaction from tweeps, who praised Zuma's mother for empowering other women.
Dineo Mothupi, who goes by the Twitter handle @mothupi_dineo, wrote: "Your Mom is a blessing Muzi she's got a heart of gold and you took after her..Indeed an apple does not fall far from the tree."
