'Smiles restored after tragic loss'- SA congratulates Jackson Mthembu on daughter's graduation
ANC chief whip Jackson Mthembu has taken to Twitter to share that he is a proud father, after his daughter Khabo graduated from the University of Cape Town on Wednesday.
Khabo obtained her honors degree with a distinction in clinical social work.
Mthembu said he was looking forward to celebrating more of his daughter's academic achievements. "Congratulations sisi, we are looking forward to you completing your Masters and thereafter your PhD," he wrote.

Emotional messages of support poured in for Mthembu and his family. Just a few weeks ago, in March, his daughter Khwezi committed suicide - news that Mthembu confirmed on his Twitter account.
