A proud young South African man, Siyabonga Nyezi recently shared with a Facebook page, Varsity World about his parents' heartwarming reaction to him finally attending his graduation ceremony.
"My dad has always teased me about never having graduated in my life, because I was also a pre-school dropout (funny story for another day). So, when I got confirmation of my LLB; I told myself I’d attend graduation this time.
"My worry was that my parents wouldn’t be able to attend because of Covid restrictions, but thank heavens for Level 1. Still concerned about potential exposure, I called my parents and told them that grad is happening, but I am worried about them.
"While my mom and I deliberated about this, I heard my dad shouting in the background that “Ndiyaya mna! Andazi ngawe” [trans: I am going! Don’t know about you]. His reason was that they’ve never seen me, graduate, so they want that moment. So, against my advice, they decided that they’d come for graduation.
"I don’t think I’ve ever seen them so proud! You’d swear they were the ones graduating. My dad kept chirping me, telling me that “At least ngoku sinayo i proof yoba ufundile” [we finally have proof you’re educated].
