Marriage to teen halted

2012-12-04 00:00

A PENDING marriage between a man over the age of 40 and a 14-year-old girl in KwaMaphumulo was stopped in its tracks this weekend.

“However, it was found out that the 20-year-old was pregnant, and was carrying another man’s child, and had run off. As lobola [R29 500] had been paid, the family told him that he could have his money back, but he said he wanted a wife, not money, and the teenager was then chosen to take her sister’s place,” said Khumalo. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
