Sibongile, who is the branch secretary of the Pan Africanist Student Movement of Azania at East London’s Potsdam campus, transformed her life from ordinary student to that of a socialite.
A neighbour in Ilinge village, near Queenstown, broke the news to grandma Mani on Tuesday.
“I have been very ill since I heard this story,” she said, sobbing.
“I just arrived from the doctor. Neighbours have been coming to pray for me. I don’t know what this child got herself into. I have not been able to sleep.”
After she moved to Ilinge from Springbok, Mani continued caring for Sibongile until she matriculated. Sibongile’s mother lives and works in George, Western Cape.
The pensioner said it would have been better if Sibongile had used the money wisely instead of wasting it on extravagant things.
