A 20-year-old man who is the son of a well-known South African polygamist, Mpumelelo Mseleku, has revealed plans to wed his two female partners.
Interview in an interview with Dailysun, Mpumelelo said the two women, Vuyokazi Nciweni and Nompumelelo Makhanya, with whom he’s been seeing for two years, are set to meet one another for the first time in December.
“I’ve been dating these two ladies for the past two years and now I am preparing to marry them. I’ve met their families, and I’ve also introduced them to the Mselekus. They are effectively my fiancees.
“This December, I am planning to spend time with both of them. It’s going to be the first time they meet each other, otherwise they talk on the phone and on WhatsApp. We actually have a group chat where all three of us talk,” he said.
Speaking on his plans to marry his two fiancees, he said,
“Unfortunately I cannot reveal the date, month or any further details, but the weddings will happen soon. I haven’t paid lobola, but I’ve already discussed it with my father. Our agreement is that he will pay a certain portion towards lobola and I’ll pay a certain portion.
“For now I don’t have enough money except my inheritance which I’ll use towards lobola. Again, I cannot disclose the finer details of ilobola because these are sacred discussions between my father and myself. My mother, MaYeni, is not aware of these discussions.”
The father of Mpumelelo, a well-known South African businessman and polygamists, Musa Mseleku, said that he gave his son permission to marry the two ladies of his dreams.
“I’ve already given Mpumelelo my blessings to go and get married. I’m actually happy that he is getting married while he’s still young. This will allow him to make more babies, raise them and grow with them.
“I wouldn’t want him to get old and start doing things because he might fail. As we speak, the lobola talks are at an advanced stage and as a father I am paying part of them.” He told Dailysun.
