Although polygamy is legally recognized in South Africa, father of 10 Milton Mbhele was still unusual in organizing the weddings at the same time.
The 44-year-old local government employee from KwaZulu Natal pledged his undying and equal love at a lavish white wedding held in a giant marquee in a sports field.
” It doesn’t help to have one wife and have 30 girlfriends that drain you so much you end up with no money “
“This is the day I’ve been waiting for all my life,” said Mbhele before taking his multiple vows,” reported the newspaper.
Mbhele, in a white linen suit, and his four brides, wearing white princess gowns and tiaras, arrived together in a limo.
Mbhele, who has seven children with his four brides and three from previous relationships, cited his Zulu “culture” and economic reasons for the unusual wedding.
