South African twin sisters have raised eyebrows after getting married to a man twice their age.
The twins, Owami and Olwethu Mzazi were interviewed by SABC’s Mapaseka Mokwele in herAsk Motswako TV show.
During the interview, the 25 year-old twins explained how they sleep in separate bedrooms and their husband aged 50 alternates his nights, occasionally having a threesome.
Both Owami and Olwethu got married to their husband on the same day after he paid their dowry.
They are both students at City Varsity where they study acting and have one child each.
Their three year old girls act as twins, to the extent of sharing a bedroom, and they refer to their mothers as Mama One and Mama Two.
During the interview, the twin sisters said they are never jealous of each other as their husband knows how to balance his time well.
“Even when he sends an SMS he will send it to Owami and to Olwethu. When he is about to come home he will send an SMS to both of us. He is coming to the same house but he separates the SMSs,” said the twins during the interview as translated by the show.
The two added that they opted for the older man who was their acting mentor because they never wanted to be separated even in marriage.
“He was our acting teacher and after a while we developed a bond. He told us that he loved both of us from the beginning. Back then he didn’t know that we wanted to marry one person,” said the twins.
Despite the shock for both extended families when the man came to pay the dowry for both ladies, the twins say their grandmother was aware that they wanted to get married to the same man.
Their uncle had earlier mentioned that they would only be managed by an older man who will love them equally and wants to take care of his two wives.
