“She was so happy and excited, she couldn’t believe the car was hers,” said Skolopad speaking to Drum.
“I didn’t know what to get her that would make her happy because she’s been through a lot this year, from losing her father in January to having to support me after my accident,” explained the nurse.
“I just wanted to get her something that would make her happy and she loves driving so I thought, well why not a car.”
“As a mother I am so proud of her especially because she has no child. When I was in matric I had a child but she doesn’t…” said Skolopad speaking about her daughter.
“You know how teenagers are these days but to me Amohelang is such a sweet and well-behaved child. She’s supported me so much especially this year after my accident”
