Honestly, 2017 needs to end alreadyâ€¦ All these bizarre people keep cropping up withÂ the weirdest things/ideas which were meant to be left in 2016â€¦
Even before the amazing story of the Sh 100 couple settles down, one Zimbabwean couple just decided to steal the limelight all for the wrong and unbiblical reasons.
According toÂ zambianobserver.com a woman decided to wed her very own son over the weekend.Â The two who claim to be in love with each other saw it fit to take their relationship to the next level and get married. To make matters worse, the mother, Betty Mbereko is six months pregnant with her sonâ€™s son. Yes, she is expecting her sonâ€™s child who will also double up as her grandchild.
The 40-year-old woman has been a widow for a dozen years and has been living with her 23-year-old son (17-years her junior), Farai Mbereko
Mrs. Mbereko confirmed that she is six months pregnant and that she decided it is better to â€œmarryâ€ her son whom she has been seeing for the last three years because she does not want to marry her late husbandâ€™s young brothers, whom she says have been coveting her.
LOOK, I STRUGGLED ALONE TO SEND MY SON TO SCHOOL AND NO ONE HELPED ME. NOW YOU SEE THAT MY SON IS WORKING AND YOU ACCUSE ME OF DOING SOMETHING WRONG.
â€œLET ME ENJOY THE PRODUCTS OF MY SWEAT,â€
she told the village court council.
Mrs. Mberekoâ€™s son cum newest hubby, Mr. Farai said he was more than prepared to marry his mother and would pay off the lobola (bride price) balance his father had left unpaid to his grandparents.
â€œI KNOW MY FATHER DIED BEFORE HE FINISHED PAYING THE BRIDE PRICE AND I AM PREPARED TO PAY IT OFF,â€
â€œIT IS BETTER TO PUBLICISE WHAT IS HAPPENING BECAUSE PEOPLE SHOULD KNOW THAT I AM THE ONE WHO MADE MY MOTHER PREGNANT.OTHERWISE, THEY WILL ACCUSE HER OF PROMISCUITY.â€
