A popular Facebook group aimed at addressing issues facing young women in the country, aptly named Ladies House has come through for one in need.
The group has intervened and helped a woman who appeared on Isithembu show, Mnakwethu on Tuesday.
In Tuesday’s episode, Makhosazane “MaShelembe” Shelembe was emotional as she explained how her husband-to-be, Bhekisisa Langa was neglecting her.
She said there are times that she goes over a month without seeing him. At that time he is having a time of his life with his squeeze Hlengiwe “MaS’thole” Sithole.
The show is aimed at helping men who want to take another wife. The show facilitates for the men to speak to their first wives about the proposal.
MaS’thole was so arrogant saying that she didn’t need the first wife’s permission to marry her ‘mkhenywana’.
She is the one that announced that Langa had already started with lobola negotiations with her family.
The show left so many people emotional about how Mashelembe was treated. Ladies House took it upon themselves to help.
What was clear was that MaShelembe was only staying with the man because she had no other choice.
She is unemployed and the guy was providing for her and her children through a Spaza shop.
But Ladies House is said to have found her and spoken to her family about allowing her to go back home.
A woman who calls herself @ndomfuh_1 on Twitter updated that Ladies house had found MaShelembe and intervened.
“Omnax kwiLadies House sebetholele umnax lo obekwi #Mnakwethu umsebenzi, a therapist and they found her family members bebanxusa ukuthi akayolandwa umaShelembe abuyele ekhaya. Women are offering a weekend away just to ease the pain,” she wrote.
The tweet reads: “The other women in Ladies House have found the woman who was on Mnakwethu a job.
They also found her a therapist. The women also found her family and urged them that Mashelembe should be fetched and brought back home.
“The women are offering a weekend away for MaShelembe to help her with her pain.”
Even the host of the show Musa Mseleku who is a serial polygamist was shocked at MaS’thole’s attitude.
