A young man is making his family proud through his hard work and determination. NgwanaMokwena Mamtoltli LeOra shared a post to Facebook group #ImStaying about her younger brother, Lungelo.
Lungelo earned himself a scholarship to a private boarding school at a young age. His sister said he moved to the suburbs, chasing a dream with nothing in his pocket. LeOra recalled that day he started school in her post about him.
"I remember the day I dropped him at school. I didn't have anything in my pocket to offer him. My grandmother gave me R100 to pour petrol to take him to boarding (school). I was worried that I am leaving my little brother with strangers without a cent."
Her proud and strong brother said to her: "Sesi, don't worry. I am covered." NgwanaMokwena said that the image of him in his school uniform is his first picture after he got the new uniform at the private school he attended.
"Proud of you Lungelo. All the best on your journey bafo, don't forget what granny taught us: 'God first, the rest shall follow.' "
Lungelo and NgwanaMokwena received an array of messages under the post. Stayers are immensely proud of the young man for making something out of nothing and never giving up. Briefly.co.za compiled a few of the top comments.
