She was only 24 when she fell in love with him. The age gap between them was 26 years old

But the only thing they care about was their love. At that time, any kind of interracial sexual relations and marriage was illegal.

But because of the harsh law, the pair got separated for long periods. He used to meet his son every Sunday. 

But later, he shifted to Cape town, that's when they completely lost touch with him. 

The law changed when the immorality act was amended in 1985. Their son was one year old.
