Now, this is news that Mzansi will receive with gladness! MaYeni (Nokukhanya Mseleku) and MaNgwabe (Mbali Mseleku) of Uthando Nesthembu appear to have won the fifth wife battle. Meaning they were able to prevent their husband Musa Mseleku from marrying another wife. Well… at least for time being.
Musa took a stand against his wives in the last episode, which aired in December, in his ongoing effort to add another woman to the dynamic. Little did he know that he was just about to unleash the dragon. MaYeni and MaNgwabe were the most outspoken in their opposition to Musa’s desire for another wife.
Viewers watching the final episode of Uthando Nesthembu were outraged that Musa would bring up such a delicate matter in front of the Mseleku children, who were also present at their family dinner.
Going futher the two made it clear that they’re ready to walk out of their marriage should he proceed with his plans. Guess what, it seems like they were dead serious. Musa revealed in a recent interview with the Daily Sun that he would put off expanding his family with another wife who could bear him more children because his two wives (Nokukhanya and Mbali) were adamantly against it.
“I couldn’t take wife number five because my two wives, MaNgwabe and MaYeni Mseleku, have threatened to leave me. They were not happy and I realised if I insist on it, my family would have been destroyed. I love my wives and I don’t want to lose Mbali or Muntuza over this. Instead, I want to build the Mseleku family,“ he told the publication.
He went on to say that he wouldn’t want to bring a new wife into a tumultuous atmosphere and force her on people who don’t like or appreciate her. As a result, he will now concentrate his efforts on persuading his wives to accept a new wife.
