Starting her speech, MaCele said, “I want to thank God, if He had forsaken me, I would have lost my life. It wasn’t an easy road, even when I try to imagine how I really survived throughout the years, I fail to understand. I remember when I got sick after a year when we got married, you took care of me like you were a doctor. You even went as far as taking care of a bucket I was using because I couldn’t go to the toilet”.

“That period assured me that you do love me..”. Chiming in, Mseleku said he did what he had to do because it was a given that when you have a sick wife, as a partner, you have to nurse her back to health.

Unlike the other wives who had good things to say about Musa and MaCele’s love story, MaNgwabe seemed top be taking jabs by adding that she also could tell her love story with Mseleku.

This did not go down very well with the people on the Twitter streets.

Mangwabe is not to make sure. I’m sure she can’t wait for her wedding so that she can talk and shine. #Uthandonesthembu

I’m convinced MaNgwabe doesn’t even like Musa atp. You dare say something nice about Musa, she will look for something negative and it’s weird cos Musa tiptoes around her the most. Wa mbora shame #Uthandonesthembu
