Mom presents daughter with E1 500 as a gift
Parents usually buy gifts to present their children whenever they have done well in their studies, particularlyin external examinations.
However, a parent of a Ngwane Practising Primary pupil said she will give her daughter E1 500 as a present for excelling in the Standard Five exams.
Sibonginkosi Celumusa Shabane (12) will pocket the money as a gift from her mother, Cebisile Shabane. The excited mother said when she learned that her daughter was one of the top pupils she had no other thing in mind as a gift except to present her with a sum of E1 500.
The f a mil y is f r om El a ngeni. Sibonginkosi recorded 76 per cent, making her one of the top pupils in the 2018 Standard Five results.
“I have not considered any other thing for now except presenting her with E1 500 to spoil herself on anything she wants.
“I am proud of her and the joy she has brought to the family for being one of the top pupils in the country is unbelievable,” said Shabane (mother) when interviewed telephonically, shortly after the release of the results on Thursday.
