Johannesburg - After Sanele Mboto received his matric results at midnight on Wednesday, he immediately picked up the phone and called his mother.
“She was actually really shocked,” said Mboto. “I never call her that late so she probably thought there was something wrong. She asked me, ‘why on earth are you calling me so late?’”
Mboto, a learner at St Andrew’s College told his mother, Ntombizanele, that he had bagged four distinctions in his matric results.
“She started screaming over the phone. She really was over the moon. She jumped up and down and went crazy,” said Sanele.
Mboto has been away from home for the past five years after moving from Kokstad, in KwaZulu-Natal, to pursue his dream of schooling at St Andrew's College in Grahamstown.
