Popular South African entrepreneur, Karidas Tshintsholo, surprises his mother with a new home
Popular South African entrepreneur, Karidas Tshintsholo, has surprised his mother with a brand new house.Tshintsholo said the moment he handed over the house to his mom was a dream come true for him as he has been working towards it all his entire life. “Ever since I was a little kid, I made it a point that I would take care of her.” He said.
He noted that he and his mom went through ‘real poverty’ while he was growing up. He said there were times the mother would cry herself to sleep because they had no food left to eat.
I’ve been debating with myself on wether I should share this publicly: I hope this inspires someone out there.
I’ve been working towards this moment my entire life, my mom and I went through real poverty when I was growing up. I remember there were nights where there simply just wasn’t any food left. I’d hear her crying herself to sleep sometimes, and she’d put her head on the pillow because she thought I wouldn’t hear anything. Ever since I was a little kid, I made it a point that I would take care of her.
At the end of last year I asked her to come stay with me in Joburg for “Covid Reasons”, but really I just wanted time to build & surprise her with a new house. On Mother’s day a few weeks ago she came back & I welcomed her to her new home & I invited her close friends. Together with my friend Kabelo (an architect) we designed & oversaw the execution of the house.
Really grateful to God for His ongoing grace
