He dances gleefully to the gate to welcome his bride.  The  day  he’s  been praying for has finally  arrived  and  he  can’t   wait to open the gates  of his home in Nazaretha village in Ladysmith to her and her  family. And the fact she’s three hours late does nothing to damper his enthusiasm.

“I said one day I will marry you and I kept my promise,” actor Menzi Ngubane says to his bride, smiling from ear to ear. Today there’s no sign of the hardcore TV villains he often plays – he’s just a man in love fulfilling a promise to the woman who captured his heart.  Menzi, 54, and Sikelelwa Sishuba, 39, held their umembeso and traditional wedding just in time for the holidays.
