Would you share your man with your sister? Identical twin sisters Owami and Olwethu, 26, from Joburg, share everything, including a husband, Mzukiseni Mzazi, who is 25 years their senior. The twin sisters think of themselves as conjoined twins, saying “We feel so attached to each other; our souls are so intertwined that we see ourselves as one person. Our star sign is Gemini; we dress in the same outfits and are always together. Our husband tells us that even in our sleep, we turn at the same time and have the same mannerisms.” And this is one of the reasons why they are married to the same man. While the average woman would frown at the idea, these aspiring actresses have no qualms with their unique marital set up. In fact, they claim that their household is peaceful. They don’t compete for their hubby’s attention, and take comfort in knowing that when their husband isn’t with one sister, he’s with the other. While many people are shocked by this situation, the sisters say there are people who support them, including their family and in-laws.
