Welcome to Africa 🙂 a Mother of Odd Stories 😉
In a bizarre story, as if being born on the same day, at the same time, delivered by the same mother, sharing the same dad was not enough, Identical twins Owami and Olwathu decided to share a husband, in Zimbabwe.
The 29 year old twins from Roodepoort, they married a 54 year old man who happens to be a Television (TV) Director Mzukiseni Mzazi.
After 8 solid years in their marriage, the twins decided to pull out.
According to the twins the marriage was terrible, secondly, Mzukiseni lied about his previous marriage and he was a serial abuser.
“He used to beat us. He poured diesel over the house but couldn’t find matches. If he had we’d be dead today. We fear he might end up doing something bad to us.”
Efforts to mend the marriage also failed with family members calling interventions to address the abuse claims. Speaking to publication Daily Sun, The Twins mother Buyiswa Mvangeni (45) said had at first believed a mature man would take care of her two babies. “Mzazi called a meeting with both our families,” she said.
“But even then nothing changed.
“The abuse got out of hand and nothing could be done to save the marriage.”
She couldn’t go to the police because the twins wouldn’t have liked that. At the time of publication, lawyers are currently finalising divorce proceedings with the resolutions to be released at a later date.
