Why I Married My Own Biological Mother!!

ANCESTOR DUTY: Son and mother say: “I do”.

ANCESTOR DUTY: Son and mother say: “I do”.

SOUTH AFRICA-In a sleepy village known as Slovo Park near Siyabuswa, 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 from Siyabuswa in Mpumalanga, 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 Buti Mphethi , 28, to his mother Francinah Makunyane, 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.

Mphethi paid the lobola of two cows to his mother with a street value of R14 000.

The wedding was arranged and took place at his mother’s home in the same village on Saturday and finished at his home at the weekend.

Mphethi dropped out of his second year studies in sound engineering at the Tshwane University of Technology in 2003 to become a sangoma.

He felt it was a calling from his ancestors.

Mphethi said he had been married before, but it did not work out. His wife left him four years ago.

Mphethi said that his father William Mphethi was still alive, and had four wives. The father stays with the elder wife in Burgersfort, Limpopo.

He was confident that marrying his own mother had been in line with his culture.

Speaking to The New Age, the beaming bride, Makunyane, said she never imagined having a ‘white wedding’ because she was a grown up.

“I am now old enough and getting married was never in my mind. My son really did a good thing to marry me before he can marry his wife.

“This process is part of our culture. I am now a married woman because he represented his father,” she said, before bursting into tears of joy.

    lt is South Africa, where you get cured from aids if and when you have sex with a two year old. Apartheid really had deep effect on these souls.

    • Lulubelle said

      There was no need for a wedding then.. Just pay the overdue dowry and keep it moving. I don’t think they are mad enough to committ incest.

  26. Kidosho said

    I just want to believe that this wedding was just for show off and that there is no physical relationship between this woman and her son, otherwise it an abomination. May God help us!

    This world is ful of wonders

  28. leo said

    If 2000 people attended this wedding and now millions more are reading this undetailed story, do the math! This is a very smart and now famous University drop out. Next time you need a traditional healer, youll probably be looking for this guy. There’s alot of money to be made in this world. In Kikuyu tradition, the first born child is named after either your mom or your dad. You call them that without shame. Whenever I call my son Dad at the grocery store {walmart} the Americans give me a funny look. They go like, Is that your real dad? Cucu used to tell me that I was her husband. Does that suprise everyone? I have a reason to believe that, the author of this story deliberately opted out the details in order to make the story more interesting.

    read between the lines. this marriage was to satisfy the yearnings of this mama. her husband never gave her a white wedding.their tradition allows a son to take his mom through the process on behalf of the dad. It seems like there is no physical contact. the mother said of the son,”Iam glad he did this for me before he marries his wife”

  34. Safi said

    Felli Nyathama is very right!!! and Martha Njama is wrong. If you read the story very carefully, this marriage was simply symbolic and not sexual. The young man was simply, for cultural purposes, paying lobola of cows and money to ceremoniously and traditionally clear his father’s cultural obligations in order to receive blessing to go ahead and marry a woman of his youth. And again: If I read the story and comprehended it right, sex with his mother was not involved in this ceremonious wedding.
