A mother, @MrsBashaT, inspired South Africans when she revealed she and her husband bought property for their son. Taking to Twitter, @MrsBashaT said her son and his future bride are both medical students and they recently completed lobola negotiations.
The proud parents wanted to help the lovebirds kick off their lives together and bought them a sweet apartment.
She captioned the post:
"My husband and I gifted our oldest son with a property. For him and his fiancée. They are both second-year medical students and live at university residence. I promised to care for my daughter and I will not subject her to any harm. ESP that which I endured with in-laws. Curse ends with me."
Take a look at her post below:
"Last week my husband and I officially informed my parents of the intentions of our son to marry his high school sweetheart. Informed them of the engagement that took place and lobala preparations. My parents are elated. They can’t wait to meet Makoti, especially my dad."
@MrsBashaT broke the stereotype of mother-in-laws not liking their son's partners. She raved about her soon-to-be daughter-in-law.
"My son chose well. Oh my word, fam. She is beautiful, warm and intelligent. Grade 12 she got six distinctions. On the Dean’s list 1st year university. Humble."
Social media users were inspired by the parents' sweet gift and they applauded them in the comment section.
Twitter user, @TheLioness_R, commented:
"Are you not looking at adopting a 26-year-old? I am well behaved."
Another tweep, @ingridsandie, said:
"Mami. Do you perhaps have another son?"
Meanwhile, in other news, Hlelile Mbanda (25) has brought joy and happiness to her parents by building them a mansion after decades of living in falling mud houses. According to some residents, she is the first person to build such a house at her age in her neighbourhood in eMaphephetheni, Ndwedwe.
Speaking to Briefly.co.za, Hlelile said it has been always her dream to get her parents out of their misery. She said anybody who lived in a house built with blocks in her area was seen as a very rich person. Therefore, she had this drive to get her parents out of the mud houses after being through a lot. She said one of the mud houses collapsed on them few years back.
“I wanted to thank them. They've been through a lot. There are things they could have done, but they didn't because they cared for me. I always thought maybe things could have easier for them if they did not have me. So there was no way I could forget them for all the sacrifices they made to make sure my future is bright,” she said.
