WILL PRETTY AND LEHASA EVER SEVER THEIR RELATIONSHIP?

Although the teasers for the October episode of TVSA Skeem Saam reveal that Lehasa will take responsibility for his unborn baby and lobola Khwezi, they do not show that he and Pretty will end their relationship after he marries Khwezi. Fans of Jacobeth Thobakgale, who formerly served as the principal of Turfloop High School, will be pleased to learn that she is going to get to know a mysterious man and eventually fall in love with him.

On Friday, October 7th, the teaser read as follows:

We are already aware that Lehasa, played by Cedric Fourie, does not love Khwezi, played by Samukele Mkhize, and that the sole reason he is marrying her is to ensure that she will not testify against him during his hearing.

On Monday, the 10th of October:

Pretty anticipates having a good time with her beau, but instead, she is confronted with her worst nightmare.

The teasers also reveal that Khwezi will try to seduce Lehasa after her lobola negotiations, but he will not give in to her advances because he is only interested in her unborn child, who may or may not even be his.

The TVSA previews also imply that the relationship between Lehasa and Pretty (Lerato Marabe) will be put to the test by his trial, which will involve the revelation of a murder that he committed during his hearing.

However, #TeamPreHasa should not be concerned because it appears that the two will put aside their differences and continue to work together.

The decision regarding his case won’t be made public until the latter half of October at the earliest.

WHO IS JACOBETH’S LOVE INTEREST IN ‘SKEEM SAAM’?

Jacobeth Thobakgale, the former principal of Turfloop High School, is about to experience love for the first time since the show’s inception, and viewers of the educational soap opera will be thrilled to witness this development.

In point of fact, this will be the very first time that we see Elizabeth Serunye’s character involved with a man in any kind of romantic relationship… or even going on a date.

Despite the fact that she already has a daughter, Dr. Elizabeth Thobakgale (who is portrayed by Amanda Manku), Lizzy’s father has never been shown on the show, and we have never met him. Therefore, I have never witnessed her in a romantic partnership.

The teasers don’t reveal much about the man in question, other than the fact that he is a newcomer to Turfloop and someone who will cause her to remember feelings she hasn’t had in a very long time.

On the 21st of October:

Jacobeth comes into contact with a person who reawakens feelings in her that she had long believed to be dormant.

On Monday, the 24th of October:

“Jacobeth now finds that she must deal with the fact that she has feelings for a man whom she has never met.”

On Monday, the 31st of October:

“Jacobeth has a new song to sing, and you can find her living on cloud nine right now.”

The South African bride price has shifted from cattle to cash in recent years.

JOHANNESBURG (Reuters) – In the past, it took a South African man several heads of cattle to set himself up with a new wife. These days, however, many South African men pay in cash, which can lead to issues with inflation or abuse.

It’s wedding season in South Africa in December, which means families are getting ready for the traditional economic negotiations that often come before the ceremony. Flashy German cars are zipping through dusty township streets during this time of year.

The practice of paying a “dowry,” also known as a “lobola,” has been practiced for generations in southern Africa. In this custom, the family of the groom gives a present, most commonly cattle, to the family whose daughter will be joining their household.

In contemporary South Africa, however, where few urbanized families have room for pastures, the focus quickly shifts to cash as the primary factor in the calculations. Inflation is making romance more difficult for both parties because some men believe they have “bought” their wives with their money.

Amanda Gcabashe, a traditional healer, stated that the ceremony had been “bastardized” by “opportunistic people” and “inflation.” “It is a beautiful ceremony that has been bastardized,” she said.

According to Barry Dijoe, a young professional from South Africa’s Tswana tribe who is about to embark on lobola negotiations, some members of the younger generation believe that lobola is both expensive and unnecessary.

“But then you’ve got to look at the other side of the coin, it is a sign of giving thanks to her parents for raising the woman that you fell in love with,” Dijoe said. “It is a sign of giving thanks to her parents for raising the woman that you fell in love with.”

Despite this, he was getting ready to engage in some tough bargaining.

“Unfortunately, it has become a financial transaction, and some people just forget the aspect of love and the fact that we are beginning a life together,” he said. “Some people just forget the fact that we are beginning a life together.”

HOW TO VALUE A BRIDE?
It is customary for the bride’s family to take the lead role in the lobola negotiation. During this process, the bride’s family will frequently remind the groom-to-be that it required both time and money to bring up the woman he intends to marry.

According to Likhapa Mbatha, who works at the Center for Applied Legal Studies at the University of the Witwatersrand in Johannesburg and is also the secretary for the Movement for Rural Women, an organization that does not seek to make a profit, the lobola custom is essential to the African identity.

“It is our African way of doing things, and it is still a viable practice,” she said, despite the fact that some men end up with a false sense of ownership after the transaction. “It is still a viable practice,” she added.

Some men are abusive to their wives and justify it by saying that their wives paid them lobola.

In contemporary South Africa, cattle continue to be a significant indication of wealth, and in rural areas, lobola is frequently still paid in the form of cows that are transported from one family’s field to another.

But for black South Africans who live in urban areas and townships that have been urbanized, as well as for the growing number of black South Africans who live in leafy suburbs that were once designated as “white” under apartheid, the cattle are becoming increasingly figurative.

Although the prices might still be set in cows, the payment must always be made in cash.

First, the two parties will need to agree on a price for a single cow, which could be anywhere from a symbolic 100 rand ($14) to the current market price of 3,000 rand ($420). Next, they will need to multiply this price by the number of cows that they believe the new bride is worth.

This can result in a significant sum of money. And even if the couple does end up getting a divorce, the bride’s family is still entitled to their share of the bounty.

According to Thabo Seekane, who just recently gave away his daughter, determining lobola in the old days did not involve modern considerations such as the educational level of the prospective bride or her physical attractiveness.

“It was something that had been pre-determined by the family, years in advance,” he said. “It was something that was pre-determined.” “The issue that we face in this day and age is the transformation of cattle into cash. This conversion then becomes something very personal and very open to interpretation.

INSTALMENT PLAN
As a result of the rise in prices, some households have come to an agreement that lobola can be paid for in installments, sometimes stretching out over an entire lifetime. However, some of them demand the full payment up front, which is considered an extremely wasteful and pricey abuse of the age-old ceremony.

It has been reported that a Johannesburg businessman shelled out approximately 35,100 rand (about 250,000 rand) in order to secure the hand in marriage of a daughter of Zulu King Goodwill Zwelithini.

Zwelithini himself has reached into the purse on multiple occasions in order to pay lobola, which is a risk that comes with adhering to the Zulu custom of having more than one wife.

A spokesman for the South African bank Nedbank named Dick Mhango stated that the financial institution does not offer any specific products for lobola; however, a dowry may be covered under the terms of a general loan.

Mbatha of the University of Witwatersrand said that although many women in rural areas still support lobola, they are growing increasingly concerned that inflation may make marriage unaffordable in areas where unemployment can reach as high as 40 percent.

She stated that “rural women have asked the government to pass laws, which will set a minimum and a maximum price to lobola… it has become very difficult for their children to pay lobola,” and that “rural women have asked the government to pass laws, which will set a minimum and a maximum price to lobola.”

Last year, the National House of Traditional Leaders of South Africa, which is the country’s highest council of tribal and community elders, requested that parliament regulate lobola in order to slow the skyrocketing price demands.

Abraham Mzakhe Sithole, who is the head of the chamber, stated that they did not take the position that it should be commercialized because that is the position that they took.
