58-Year-Old Mother Graduates From A University


​A South African comedian, Loyiso Gola, has showed off his 58-year-old mother who just graduated from the University of the Western Cape, South Africa. Gola expressed that his mother who had always wanted to go to the university, got the chance 4 years ago after she retired from work.

The woman who was an excellent student could not go to the university because of racial segregation in South Africa.

The two time Emmy nominated comedian expressed that he is a little bit sad because he was not there to celebrate with his mother, adding that he is proud of her. Read his post below: 

“So 4 years ago my mom retired after 26 years of working at the bank and went back to school. She had always wanted to go to university. She was a straight A student who was born to an apartheid system that blocked her progress. She raised me and my bro @lazgola by herself.” “TODAY SHE GRADUATES FROM THE UNIVERSITY OF THE WESTERN CAPE AT AGE 58. Kinda sad I was not there to witness this moment. NEVER EVER GIVE UP ON YOUR DREAMS. So proud of her”.
