How 19-year-old Girl About to Get Married Suddenly Disappears into Thin Air

A 19-year-old girl identified as Nokuthula Zwane who was preparing for her traditional wedding ceremony on 16 December disappeared two weeks ago.

According to Daily Sun SA, her worried mum, Bongeni Ngcamu (46), said her daughter accepted a marriage proposal after her fiance chose her in church. She told me they were already dating, so nobody forced her to accept his proposal.

“Eight cows were paid in July and she was very excited,” said Bongeni.

Mhlaliseni Hlatshwayo, a Shembe church spokesman from the Ebuhleni faction, said maidens are not forced to accept marriage proposals.

“In cases where a future bride changes her mind, decisions about lobola returns are made by the families.”

He said church rules indicate a woman must have accepted the proposal before being chosen in front of the congregation.

KZN police spokesman Lieutenant-Colonel Thulani Zwane confirmed a missing person docket was opened at Ezibayeni Police Station.
