AT a “couples” evening in Kokstad last Thursday, husbands who cheat were criticised and wives were told to respect their husbands.

The event was organised by GKM DJ Festival organisers and the Kokstad religious fraternity, the aim of which was to build and renew broken marriages.

Lundi Mtatambi from the GKM DJ Festival asked guests to support events hosted by young people.

“Young people can be nothing without the support of elderly people. Churches must pray for young people so they choose the right person to fall in love with,” said Mtatambi.

Umhlobo Wenene FM presenter Mzukusi Faleni was a guest speaker. The motivational speaker was Pastor Sithembiso Zondo.

Faleni told women to take care of their husbands. “Most married men love their mother and sisters, not their wives. The reason for this is because wives don’t support their husbands enough and take a while to forgive their husband for his mistakes.

“Sex does not build a strong marriage. Couples must understanding each other and be truthful in order to have a lasting marriage,” said Faleni.

Pastor Zondo said people must choose their partner not because of their looks, but because of their intelligence. Gospel artists Butho and Yolanda Vuthela performed at the event.
