Thabani Nhlengethwa posted a touching story on Facebook in the #ImStaying group in which he praises his stepdad for being an amazing human being.
He said that he owes every success that he enjoys in the future to his (step) dad, Jita. He met his mom back in 1996 and he was only four-ears-old.
He accepted his mom's 4 children from previous relationships as his own kids. He is a great dad and took them to school and was there to see each of them finish matric.
Briefly.co.za learned that Thabani praised him and said that he taught him everything that he knows. He ended by hoping that one day he could do more for him in the future than just take him out for breakfast.
Here is his full post:
"I don't usually post about my family, but I will this once."
"Pictured here is me and my (step) dad."
"I love and owe every success I might have in the future to this amazing gent right here. Jita met my mom in 1996, I was only 4 years old by then and my mom already had 4 kids from her previous relationship(s)."
"Jita took ALL of us under his wing, took us as his kids and loved us. He took us to school and we all were able to finish matric because of him. My mom was not working and so Jita was the breadwinner. They are still together and man, I love this dude with all I have. He literally taught me all I know and taught me how to take care of me and those around me. He completely changed and shaped how I see step-parenting forever, I hope I can - one day - do more for him than just take him out for breakfast."
"I'm forever grateful, Cebisa❤️"

Maria Cossa Azevedo:
"God bless you. Jita is a man in a Million and has instilled greatness in your life. Nothing wrong in being vocal about appreciation and sharing it. "
