|...Son & Mother|
sleepy village known as Slovo Park near Siyabuswa.
The son, a traditional healer from Siyabuswa in Mpumalanga, said he married his biological mother in a wedding ceremony to appease his ancestors. He now calls his mother “my wife”.
On Sunday more than 2000 people turned up to witness the wedding of Buti Mphethi , 28, to his mother Francinah Makunyane, 62.
Mphethi said that his forefathers had instructed him to pay lobola to his mother’s family before he could marry his wife, who stays separately from her own husband, Buti’s father.
Mphethi paid the lobola of two cows to his mother with a street value of R14 000.
The wedding was arranged and took place at his mother’s home in the same village on Saturday and finished at his home at the weekend.
Mphethi said he had been married before, but it did not work out. His wife left him four years ago.
Mphethi said that his father William Mphethi was still alive, and had four wives. The father stays with the elder wife in Burgersfort, Limpopo.
He was confident that marrying his own mother had been in line with his culture.
