After many decades, a man reunited with his primary school mates and social media have been set abuzz by the photos he shared online.
The man identified as Barade, who is a military veteran met his primary school mates decades after their graduation and he dropped old photos of them when they were young in primary school and presently as adults.
According to the criminologist and security expert, he and his mates graduated from primary school in 1967, quite a long time ago. He added that he decided to welcome them lately so that they could remember with pleasure the many things that happened 60 years ago when they all began Primary 1 in 1961.
He tweeted: “Today is one of the most memorable. I had the privilege to host my primary school classmates. I have not seen some since 1967 when we graduated. We had a good time catching up, remembering things that happened 60yrs ago when we began Primary 1 in 1961. To Allah be the glory.”
His tweet quickly went viral, with thousands liking it.
