TV presenter believes late husband watches over son as he starts school
“I do not have the words to explicitly articulate my gratitude to God, our angel (Daddy would have been so so proud to see this day here on earth but I know he has a better view)”
While parenting can be seen as a daunting task, especially if you lose your significant other and are left to do it all on your own, East London-born TV presenter Kayise Ngqula believes her late husband Farai Sibanda continues to watch over her and their son.
Farai died in a car crash in June 2019 while their son Zuko was a few months away from his first birthday.
The TV personality shared these sentiments in an emotional post on Instagram as she prepared her son for his first day of school.
“And just like that ... my baby boy is off to school tomorrow. Today was open day/meet and greet day and what a thrill and joy it was to see him transition into the next phase of his life so smoothly.
“I do not have the words to explicitly articulate my gratitude to God, our angel (Daddy would have been so so proud to see this day here on earth but I know he has a better view).”
Though she knows she is not alone, Kayise said her family, particularly her mother who she believes is “God-sent”, was by her side during her parenthood journey.
“The best grandmother any child could ask for ... thank you for walking this journey with us. When my husband passed, I didn’t know how I would make it past a day raising this child who was just eight months old at the time.
“We are a product of your prayers too, my supporters thank you for all the times you called out our names loudly in prayer. These are the results! Ngiyabonga Jehovah, Smakade.”
As the reality set in that her son is growing up, the budding actress expressed her excitement at taking him to school and lifted the lid on how the first day went.
“First day of school morning had a bit of a rocky start ... Nonetheless, the drop off at school and into class was smooth, no tears from both of us that is. I’d say all went pretty well.
“Here’s to the next days of our lives doing this life thing together.”
