In a sleepy village , 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, 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 Mphethi , 28, to his mother,now 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.
