Learner receives car for passing

One blessed learner received a car for passing his Grade 12.

According to a video posted by Peché Africa, the young man obtained seven distinctions. 

In the video, the boy comes out of another car while being called by an elderly female voice. 

"Come boy" calls the female, before adding, "Well done, son". 

The young man can be seen holding his mouth in disbelief as he wipes his eyes while looking at his car covered with balloons.

He goes on to hug the female and others in the video.

The video has since gone viral on social media.
