- A loving granddaughter kept a special promise she made to her gran
- She said when she got to university she would take her to the beach
- Not only did she see the beach for the first time, but she also got to fly and visit Ushaka Marine World
Keitumetse Kente made herself and her gran a promise - she would take her to the beach for the first time.
“When I get accepted to university and graduate, I am taking my grandmother to see the ocean for the first time.”
Briefly.co.za learned that the diagnostic radiography student posted a picture on social media of her and her gran at the beach. She is studying at the University of Johannesburg.
“I'm at a loss for words. She loved it. She was terrified, but she really loved it. She stood still waiting for the waves to hit her and then she was shook at the sand crawling away from her feet with the tide. Overall 11/10. I'm more than satisfied,” read Keitumetse's tweet.
Kente gran, Sarah Tlhako (76) was amazed by the experience.
“I was a bit scared when I set foot on the beach, but it was an exciting moment. It was my first time going to Durban. I am so happy. I don't know how to thank my grand daughter for this. I wish God can keep her and grant her all her wishes.”
The trip to Durban would be one of many firsts.
“We told her we were taking a bus because she said she did not want to fly. When we got to the airport, she was surprised that we were actually flying,” Keitumetse said.#
“I was scared of flying, but when I boarded the plane, I realised it is just like a taxi,” the granny said.
Kente said her grandmother wasn’t convinced that the fish at the aquarium were real — because “we saw sharks in the same tank and they didn't eat the fish”.
“We tried to explain to her but she's not having it. She has concluded that about of the fish are 3D and the sharks are fake so that's that.
“The babez didn't come to see the fish being cute with the sharks. She came for about live action,” she tweeted.
Keitumetse said that the trip was special for her as well according to the sowetanlive.co.za.
