- The De Beer family defied the law and kept their promise to 72-year-old Ouma Hester
- They took her to a beach in Cape Town despite the Covid-19 restrictions which have made beaches off-limits
- President Cyril Ramaphosa told South Africa earlier this week that due to the rise in cases, new measures would be introduced over the holiday period
The De Beer family took their 72-year-old gogo to Cape Town in order to keep a promise they had made.
Despite the Covid-19 restrictions, the couple were adamant to defy the law and holiday at the beach.
Earlier this week, President Cyril Ramaphosa told Mzansi that beaches were off-limits during the holiday season as the country entered its second wave and infections have spiked.
George Herald journalist, Kristy Kolberg happened to be at the beach when the family stopped by to keep their promise to Ouma Hester.
The family made their way down from Pretoria and they made sure that Ouma Hester got her outing at the beach.
"We knew the beaches were closed, but we had to deliver on a promise we made to my mother, Ouma Hester. You see, in all her 72 years she's never been to the Cape and we promised her that we would bring her this year. We are also still hopeful that things might change on Monday* and that we can spend a day or two on the beach before we go home," said Hester de Beer.
