They say love can blind you and make you do stupid things but burning down your own home? Tumelo left his wife and child for another woman and his affair with her led to jail time and heartache. He apologised to his family and the mother of his child on Uthando Noxolo.
Tumelo's family warned him he was making a mistake but he chose to ignore their advice and leave his life behind for a woman he barely knew.
The man fell in love and she somehow convinced him to burn down his former home - a crime that led to him being sentenced to jail for fraud.
Then she apparently left him and he was left to pick up the pieces. Tumelo turned to Uthando Noxolo to help him apologise to those he hurt.
Tweeps weren't very sympathetic to Tumelo. They couldn't understand how the woman convinced him to burn his house. Others were more impressed with his grandmother's story-telling skills.
