Losing a friend or a loved one breaks our heart as we will never be able to see the person again.
However, it gets devastating when little ones are left behind with no one to take care of them.
This was the condition of Ghanaians Siphiwo Sisusa and Siviwe Soka, who passed away in a ghastly motor accident and left their kids alone.
Their friend, Luthando Zubeiko, had promised them that he would take their children as his own and take care of them, and this he did.
On Thursday, April 11, Zubeiko took to Twitter to share pictures of his late friend’s daughter and himself on her graduation. He wrote:
”In 2004 I lost two of my best friends, Siphiwo Sisusa and Siviwe Soka in a car accident... I made a promise to both. I will be a father to your children. Proud moment to watch Lingelihle Soka degree in 2018 & Honors in 2019. God bless her... Siviwe must be smiling."
Zubeiko had been taking care of these children for more than 14 years, providing for them and seeing the daughter till her graduation from University.
His post had thousands of people commending his efforts in keeping true to his promise to his late friends.
Zubeiko is a hero indeed, for keeping his promise and not failing his late friends and their children. We do hope the children make both him and their late parents very proud.
