- A man has revealed that a stranger offered to pay lobola for him recently.
- The amused man said that the suitor wanted to pay R175 000 for his hand in marriage.
- Social media users were skeptical and many thought it sounded like a scam.
Twitter user TomiRikods shared the bizarre story on his social media account, saying:
"Some guy on the DM says he wants to marry me, says he will take me out of Sharpeville, will buy me a car and a double storey house in Midrand, he says these younger boys will give me a heartache and I should choose him cause he will take care of me"
He even posted screen shots showing snippets of the conversation with this apparently wealthy stranger. Social media users were not convinced by what the man was offering. Twitter user thobs10 said:
