Man nearly forced to marry 71-year-old man

A 35-year-old man, Cosy Ngcebetsha, was nearly forced to marry an old man a 71-year-old.

The elderly man from Mthata, Eastern Cape decided he wanted to marry a younger woman, and when his family objected, he decided to go ahead anyway.

A 23-year-old prostitute agreed and a forced marriage, known as ukuthwala, was arranged.

The plan was for the girl to wait under a tree on Sunday night for the old man's friends to pick her up, but she was late.

That's when Cosy from Khwenxurha Village arrived. He was mistaken for the woman because he was wearing a red dress.



"I was walking home from my boyfriend's house when a group of men grabbed me and carried me away," said Cosy.

He said he was taken to a house and forcefully dressed up like a bride. Cosy was then introduced to the man as her new husband.

"He couldn't believe I was a man. I was forced to reveal my 4-5 (privates). The madala grabbed a panga and threatened to cut off my 4-5."

Fortunately, the prostitute arrived and Cosy said the man and his family apologised to him and offered him five sheep.

He didn't open a case because of the peace offering and the old man also offered to pay for trauma counselling.

He admitted his mistake, but said there is nothing wrong with ukuthwala.
