- A South African man has taken to Facebook to share his struggle to study while working as a police officer
- Kabelo Amos Nkwana spoke about not being able to afford his graduation photos back in 2018 and that his wife had recently ordered and had them delivered
- Kabelo had no room for failure as his budget only allowed for three years of studying but he graduated and thanked his family for their support
We all love a feel-good story and Kabelo Amos Nkwana's is just that. Kabelo is a police officer by profession and personally paid for his MBA (Master's in Business Administration) qualification. He and his wife had discussed his studies and only budgeted for three years.
They couldn't afford for him to have to repeat a course or module and definitely not an entire year. On the day of his graduation in 2018, Kabelo had no money and couldn't afford to pay for his graduation pictures.
This past weekend he took to Facebook group Varsity World to share that his lovely wife had ordered his graduation pictures and had them delivered. His story has received over 700 reactions on Facebook.
Take a look at the full post below:
The comments section is rife with positivity as South Africans congratulate Kabelo on achieving his dreams. Briefly.co.za compiled a few of the comments:

In other inspiring news about graduates, Briefly.co.za recently reported on a stunning SA lady who celebrated bagging her degree after seven long years. Thandolwethu has just proven that determination trumps giving up on any given day.
This comes after she finally graduated with her BCom in Economics qualification. Her story was shared by popular Facebook page, Varsity World. The post, which was also accompanied by a dapperly-dressed Thandolwethu, was at the receiving end of thousands of likes and reactions. Part of her post read:
"Seven years is a lot for one to take in just for one degree, but it's taught me something. Seven years was not giving up. Seven years was always trying to see where I went wrong or what I didn't understand."
