Sibu­siso Mayisela (10), Grade 4, Re­fano Pri­mary

CityPress - - News -

A bril­liant child who loved math­e­mat­ics, Sibu­siso wanted to be a doc­tor when he grew up. He al­ways said that he wanted to heal peo­ple.

Sibu­siso was his fa­ther’s keeper. When dad knocked off work, he knew that his son was wait­ing for him at home with a hot cup of tea.

As soon as he walked in, Sibu­siso and his younger sis­ter, Nokuthula, would jos­tle to carry his bag, a fight his sis­ter al­ways won.

Their fa­ther would sit in the cor­ner sofa and Sibu­siso would bring him his af­ter­noon cup of tea. He would help him re­move his shoes and socks be­fore telling him about ev­ery­thing that had hap­pened at school.
