The path for Musa Mseleku and MaKhumalo has run out of options at this point.
This information was divulged by Musa to the Daily Sun in an exclusive interview before the sixth season of Uthando Nesthembu.
In a commercial for the upcoming season of the Mzansi Magic reality show, which premieres on October 6, he is heard telling his wives that he has made a decision about wife number five, which is met with silence from them. The new season of the show will begin on October 6.
Musa declared, “I will not be marrying MaKhumalo since my other wives conspired against me and rejected her.” MaKhumalo was the target of their opposition.
“I am unable to subject her to such a hazardous atmosphere. The matter of the fifth wife will be resolved once and for all at the end of this season. The fact that I was rejected does not necessarily indicate that my relationship with the lady from MaKhumalo is over. Simply put, it indicates that we will not be getting married.
Musa stated that he was unable to provide any further information at this time.
“Regrettably, I am unable to divulge either her name or her identify. The only thing I can recommend is that everyone tunes in to the broadcast.
In the most recent season, Musa’s existing wives were divided about whether or not they should support his plan to marry a fifth woman.
The only piece of information that was made public on the woman was that she is a member of the Khumalo clan.
In the beginning, Musa Mseleku’s first wife, Busisiwe “MaCele” Mseleku, and his third wife, Thobile “MaKhumalo” Mseleku, did not have any objections to him marrying a fifth wife.
But Thobile was hurt and angry when she found out that he planned to take another Khumalo woman, and she vehemently opposed the plan.
On the occasion of her 20th wedding anniversary, Busisiwe had a change of heart as well.
“I gave him a time frame to marry as many wives as possible, but he had to do this before our 20th wedding anniversary,” she said. “I gave him a time frame to marry as many wives as possible before our 20th wedding anniversary.”
MaNgwabe and MaYeni, two of his other wives, have made it quite clear from the beginning that they will divorce him if he marries any more women.
The South African government has floated the idea of legalizing polyandry, which refers to the practice of a woman having more than one husband at the same time. This idea has been met with howls of protest from more traditional groups.
This does not come as a surprise to Professor Collis Machoko, who is widely recognized as an authority on the subject.
According to what he said to the BBC, the objections are “about control.” “The societies of Africa are not yet prepared for genuine equality. We are at a loss for what to do with the women because they are beyond our control.
Marriages between people of the same gender are legal in South Africa, and men are allowed to have multiple wives. This is one of the most progressive constitutions in the world.
One of those against polyandry is the successful businessman and well-known TV personality Musa Mseleku, who himself has four wives.
This will result in the destruction of African culture. What should be done with the offspring of those individuals? Mr. Mseleku, who stars in a reality TV show about his polygamous family in South Africa, frequently begs the question “How will they know their identity?”
“It is impossible for the woman to play the part of the guy at this time. It’s never been done before. Is it expected that the woman will now pay the lobola (also known as the bride price) for the man. Should we anticipate that the man will take her last name?”
Polyandry was one of the topics that Professor Machoko investigated in his home country of neighboring Zimbabwe. In spite of the fact that such marriages are frowned upon by society and are not recognized by the law, he interviewed 20 women and 45 men who participated in the practice.
“Polyandry, as a result of being rejected by certain segments of society, has been pushed into the shadows. He added that the secrecy was comparable to that which was observed in freemasons.
“When faced by somebody who they do not trust or who they do not know, they will even deny that such a marriage exists,” the author writes. Fear of retaliation and persecution is the driving force behind all of this.
All of the people who took part in Professor Machoko’s study lived on their own, but they were all dedicated to their polyandrous union, and they discussed it openly with one another.
“After learning about how the queen bee in a hive hosts many bee co-husbands when she was in grade six [around the age of 12 years], one wife began to cultivate the idea that she wanted to be a polyandrous woman,” the professor said. “This gave her the desire to become a polyandrous woman.”
When she was an adult, she began having se.xual encounters with a number of different partners, all of whom were aware of the presence of the others.
“Of the nine men she is currently co-married to, four of those early boyfriends are still with her.”
In polyandry, it is common for the woman to be the one to start relationships with multiple men and to invite those men to join her union. While some choose to contribute to the bride’s livelihood, some choose to pay the bride price. If she feels that her other relationships are being negatively impacted by her co-husband, she has the authority to divorce him.
According to Professor Machoko, the primary motivation cited by the men he interviewed for their decision to become co-husbands was love. They did not want to put their wife in danger in any way.
Some men also brought up the fact that they did not provide their wives with the sexual satisfaction they desired, and they admitted that they were open to the idea of having a co-husband in order to prevent their marriages from breaking apart or leading to extramarital affairs.
Infertility was another factor, and some men were willing to let their wives marry someone else in order for their partners to finally start a family. The males were able to avoid the stigma of being considered “emasculated” and “save face” in public by acting in this manner.
According to Professor Machoko, he was unaware that polyandrous marriages were taking place in South Africa. However, gender rights activists have requested that the government legalize such unions in the interest of equality and choice, as the law currently permits a man to take more than one wife. This change would make it possible for women to choose whether or not they want to be married.
Their suggestion has been included in a document, which is officially known as a Green Paper, that the government has released for public comment as it prepares to embark on the most significant overhaul of marriage laws since the end of white-minority rule in 1994. This is being done in preparation for the government to move forward with the proposed legislation.
An advocate at the Women’s Legal Centre, a law firm that fights for women’s rights, stated that “it is important to remember that this Green Paper sets to uphold human rights and that we cannot lose sight of that.” “It is important to remember that this Green Paper sets to uphold human rights and that we cannot lose sight of that,” said Charlene May.
The fact that it contradicts some patriarchal attitudes in our society is not a sufficient reason for us to oppose legal reform.
Additionally, weddings in the Rastafarian, Hindu, Jewish, and Muslim faiths are proposed to be granted legal recognition in this treaty.
The proposal to legalize polyandry has been met with widespread approval from the groups that are affected by it; nonetheless, clerics who are now serving in elected positions have voiced their opposition to the idea.
Reverend Kenneth Meshoe, the leader of the African Christian Democratic Party (ACDP), a political party that is in opposition, claimed that it will “destroy society.”
“There will come a time when one of the men will say, ‘You spend most of the time with that man and not with me,’ and there will be conflict between the two men,” he added. “There will come a time when one of the men will say, ‘You spend most of the time with that man and not with me.'”
Ganief Hendricks, the leader of the Islamic Al-Jamah party, made the following statement on behalf of his organization: “You can imagine when a child is born, more DNA testing will be required to identify who the father is.”
Children who belong to the family
As for Mr. Mseleku, he cautioned South Africans not to carry the principle of equality “too far,” saying that it could have negative consequences. “Just because something is written into the constitution does not indicate that it would be beneficial to us in any way,” she said.
When asked why it should be any different for women, considering that he had four wives, he responded as follows: “I’ve been labelled a hypocrite because of my marriages, but I’d rather speak now than be silent. “
The only thing I can say about this is that it is not African. We are unable to alter our fundamental nature.
But Professor Machoko claims that polyandry was once common in Kenya, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, and Nigeria. He also claims that polyandry is still common in Gabon, a country in which the practice is legal.
“When Christianity and colonization were introduced to a region, the role of the woman in that culture began to change. They were no longer on an even playing field. One of the methods that were utilized to establish hierarchy was through marriage.
According to Professor Machoko, patriarchal attitudes are at the heart of concerns over children born to polyandrous couples.
“The issue of children is a very straightforward one. Those individuals who come into the world as a result of the union are regarded as members of the family.
