Letsoaka’s Isithembu Drama Opens Can Of Worms

Published

SERAME Letsoaka’s isithembu marriage has opened a can of worms from his family and friends.

Close relatives of the former Bafana Bafana caretaker coach are up in arms after this weekend’s marriage to his second wife.

It’s claimed Letsoaka told everyone he was away in Zurich on business!

Following MzansiNdaba’s report on Monday, all hell broke loose as some relatives claim to have been unaware of the isithembu marriage, while others are raising concerns about the polygamous affair.

Letsoaka admitted to the publication this week that he has indeed taken a second wife, whom he allegedly has a six-year old child with out of wedlock.

His extended family is accusing him of being insensitive by having a marriage celebration in the same weekend when his mother-in-law, from the first wife, was being buried.

The second wife’s wedding ceremony kicked off in Soweto on Friday, Heritage Day, before proceeding to the Free State.

In fact, according those close to both families who spoke on condition of anonymity, Letsoaka was economical with the truth when he told his immediate family that he was going to attend an important Fifa meeting in Zurich, Switzerland, “clearly knowing he was getting married”.

The former Botswana national team technical director works for Fifa as technical consultant for football development in the south and east African regions.

But another relative said Letsoaka has embarrassed them, and his second marriage doesn’t hold water as “he is in a civil marriage”.

“He is in a civil marriage, so his second marriage is null and void,” said the family member.

“None of us knew a thing. He said he was in Zurich for work. The house in which he had the wedding was built by a family and with his (first) wife’s money. The house in which his baby mother lives was paid for by his first wife’s money. I understand his wife has been asking him for divorce and he refused.”

The family claimed Letsoaka, who took the SA Under-20 team to the Youth Fifa World Cup quarter-final in 2009 where they lost to eventual winners Ghana in Egypt, has been living a lie.

“The lady whom he married is younger than his first daughter,” claimed another family member. “He acts like he is a good person in public. Always advising youngsters, but he is this kind of a man. He tried to kick all the cousins out of the house and now we wonder why. As the former Safa technical director, is this the man who is meant to be nurturing?”

Another source told MzansiNdaba that the first wife’s gogo lived with them for over a year, and Letsoaka used to collect her medication sometimes.

Said the source: “And yet he went and got married without consulting or asking anyone. If the marriage is OK, why was it hidden?

“Some of his own relatives refused to attend… Why, if there is nothing wrong?

“He cheated and had a child with the lady a few years ago. So he is not bewitched. He is just doing what he wants.”

However, Letsoaka said there was nothing sinister about taking a second wife.

“If someone is having isithembu, why do you want to make a mess out of it?” said former Free State Stars coach.

“This is destroying my reputation. I know what I am doing. Leave this to me to deal with it, and I am done with this conversation. Where is the sense of ubuntu? I’m not going to comment any further.”

FUNEKA Danca was left shocked after she learnt she had been given idliso, a love potion.

The star of reality show Mnakwethu said her husband confessed to her that he had used the potion on her.

Speaking to Daily Sun, she said: “I am shocked that he gave me idliso but I also don’t believe it. We have been married for more than 12 years and I never suspected anything.”

Funeka said she had no intention of consulting with traditional healers because she did not believe in them.

“If the idliso was inside me, I would have known and probably done something about it. My husband has also asked me not to consult with a traditional healer as he is one himself,” she said.

Funeka said she had no problem with her husband taking Philile Vilakazi as a second wife.

This comes after her husband Mzokhona Mbeje also confessed to giving Philile a love potion on the latest episode of the show.

“For the past two or three years, she was under my spell,” he said.

Mzokhona said the first time he gave Funeka a love potion was just after they got married. “I gave her again when I was preparing to take another wife because I wanted them to love and respect each other. It worked because they never fought and they were always happy together,” he said.

Sangoma, Gogo Mkhize said if Funeka was given a love potion, she would not know and she would think everything was normal.

“She also has nothing to worry about because it means her ancestors have no problem with it. Culturally, this is accepted, especially in polygamous marriages. However, the right procedure must be followed,” he said.

LIYEMA is a proud virgin – and she plans on keeping it that way!

Liyema Lando (20) from Tsazo in Ngcobo, Eastern Cape told Daily Sun she hopes to get married at the age of 27 and that is when she will give up her virginity.

“I have a boyfriend, but I have told him that there will be no sex until he pays lobola and that will happen when I’m 27 years old,” she said.

“He loves me and he has agreed to wait. There’s nothing more important and joyful than keeping my virginity until marriage.”

Liyema, who is a second-year BSc chemistry student at Walter Sisulu University, said there are challenges to being a virgin at her age especially with the kind of lifestyle young people are adopting at the moment.

BREAKING : Archibishop Desmond Tutu Dies. Cause Of Death Revealed

On Sunday, President Cyril Ramaphosa released a statement confirming the passing of Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Mpilo Tutu.

Tutu, the last surviving South African laureate of the Nobel Peace Prize, passed away in Cape Town at the age of 90.

President Ramaphosa expresses his heartfelt condolences to Mam Leah Tutu, the Tutu family, the board and staff of the Desmond and Leah Tutu Legacy Foundation, the Elders and Nobel Laureate Group, and the friends, comrades and associates nationally and globally of the iconic spiritual leader, anti-apartheid activist and global human rights campaigner.

Ramaphosa said: “The passing of Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu is another chapter of bereavement in our nation’s farewell to a generation of outstanding South Africans who have bequeathed us a liberated South Africa.

“Desmond Tutu was a patriot without equal; a leader of principle and pragmatism who gave meaning to the biblical insight that faith without works is dead.

“A man of extraordinary intellect, integrity and invincibility against the forces of apartheid, he was also tender and vulnerable in his compassion for those who had suffered oppression, injustice and violence under apartheid, and oppressed and downtrodden people around the world.

“As Chairperson of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission he articulated the universal outrage at the ravages of apartheid and touchingly and profoundly demonstrated the depth of meaning of ubuntu, reconciliation and forgiveness.

“He placed his extensive academic achievements at the service of our struggle and at the service of the cause for social and economic justice the world over.

“From the pavements of resistance in South Africa to the pulpits of the world’s great cathedrals and places of worship, and the prestigious setting of the Nobel Peace Prize ceremony, the Arch distinguished himself as a non-sectarian, inclusive champion of universal human rights.

“In his richly inspiring yet challenging life, Desmond Tutu overcame tuberculosis, the brutality of the apartheid security forces and the intransigence of successive apartheid regimes. Neither Casspirs, teargas nor security agents could intimidate him or deter him from his steadfast belief in our liberation.

“He remained true to his convictions during our democratic dispensation and maintained his vigour and vigilance as he held leadership and the burgeoning institutions of our democracy to account in his inimitable, inescapable and always fortifying way.

“We share this moment of deep loss with Mam Leah Tutu, the Archbishop’s soulmate and source of strength and insight, who has made a monumental contribution in her own right to our freedom and to the development of our democracy.

“We pray that Archbishop Tutu’s soul will rest in peace but that his spirit will stand sentry over the future of our nation.”
