A domestic worker shocked a Western Cape couple when she told them she had completed her LLB degree.
Actor Tim Theron and his wife said their 30-year-old SweepSouth domestic worker Barbra Gurupira informed them that she had pushed her way through law school by using her salary to fund her studies. She completed her studies in October, bagging a few distinctions in the process.
Now all she needs is her articles to get her law career off the ground – and the Therons are on a mission to help her.
Asked how Gurupira shared her story with them, Theron said it came up in a simple conversation about her five-year-old child, who she had left back at home in Zimbabwe with her grandparents.
