Why i married my own biological mother to be my wife !!!!

n a sleepy village known as Slovo Park near Siyabuswa, villagers were torn with joy and surprise as they witnessed a rather strange wedding where, a mother and son exchanged wedding vows.

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 dropped out of his second year studies in sound engineering at the Tshwane University of Technology in 2003 to become a sangoma.

He felt it was a calling from his ancestors.

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.

Speaking to The New Age, the beaming bride, Makunyane, said she never imagined having a ‘white wedding’ because she was a grown up.

“I am now old enough and getting married was never in my mind. My son really did a good thing to marry me before he can marry his wife.

“This process is part of our culture. I am now a married woman because he represented his father,” she said, before bursting into tears of joy.

WHAT IS YOUR TAKE ON THIS UNION??????

Oh for f**k's sake, people, get yuh mind out of the gutter

Anyone with a modicum of understanding of African culture would know that this is a tradition that goes back thousands of years and is simply a symbolic union to preserve the bloodline

THERE IS NO CO-HABITATION so get the redneck idea out of your mind, incest as a taboo existed in Africa long before anywhere else.

In fact if you read Male Daughters Female Husbands and Re-Inventing Africa by Ifi Amadiume, a Nigerian born sociologist who is of the Nnobi people of the Igbos, you'd see a variation of this where women sometimes marry other women so as to fulfil a requirement and a role that is based on gender, not sex. So, again, there is no sexual union (so much for using this as a model for lesbian unions). We see the same thing in ancient Egypt where brothers married sisters only to preserve the bloodline but no screwing went on and if you bother to carefully, very closely examine the relationship of the Jesus character to Mary and compare it to the older myths from Africa you will notice that it was a regular symbolic practice to speak of the son being the mother's son and consort at the same time

I find the article very mischievous and distorting and expected better (can't imagine why)

Who feels it knows it!
Incest is taboo in Africa? I was just in Mali West Africa a couple weeks ago and I saw cousin/cousin and uncle/ niece marriages......I even unwittingly attended one. These symbolic unions also end up with symbolic children. Babies conceived by divine intervention of course.

Is where this nincompoop come from?

Utterly laughable.

Way to be an asshole...considering that most of us are products of a highly Eurocentric educational system that doesn't teach us sh!t relevant about Africa, why assume that we know all these things?

As for us having our minds in the gutter...why don't you tell that to the actual Africans who commented on the news report themselves saying how disgusted they were:

Ancestors told him to marry his mother | The New Age Online

This rather crazy if u think about it. Why would these ancestors choose a granny for this man. Don't they want him to have kids or something. This is insane, a mother for a wife is UN-natural, not human at all. Dogs will sleep with they mothers, but not humans. *sick*
Insane indeed. Haai ppl like to do things and say its the ancesters. Rediculous. aint no such cuture man. Le tlo re tshegisa ke magoa ka nnete
this is just sick, how the hell is this allowed to happen. one needs to ask what brains does this young man have seems not much. to actually condone this type of unnatural bullsh@t by saying its what his ancestors wanted. as for the mother you are just as sick and disgusting to actually marry the child you brought into this world. you both should rot in hell.

Even without understanding all the specifics of the traditions, all it takes to actually READ and use a lil common sense.

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.
“I am now old enough and getting married was never in my mind. My son really did a good thing to marry me before he can marry his wife.
“This process is part of our culture. I am now a married woman because he represented his father,” she said, before bursting into tears of joy.

So the son had to appease his ancestors cos his father is a deadbeat husband???




BD from what you quoted in the first one... when they say wife they're speaking of his mother. (who stays separately from her own husband, Buti's father)

in the 2nd there is no actual real wife in the picture yet. He's just making sure things will be good when he finds someone and decides to be married.
