Letoya Makhene and Lebo Keswa are engaged and on their way to being a happily married couple. The lovebirds have already begun preparations for the wedding.
Lebo visited Letoya's family in Tladi, Soweto to give thanks for her future wife and pay respects. She also paid the family their lobola.
Lebo said that the proceedings regarding the lobola were a little bit different due to Letoya being a sangoma. Instead of just paying respect to Letoya and her family, Lebo also gave thanks to Letoya's ancestors.
Zalebs.com reported on Lebo explaining the process and its significance:
"When you lobola a woman you’re paying respect to her parents and family and thanking them for your future wife. Ukulobola idlozi is paying respect to the ancestors for the gift of the person that is in your life.
"In ancient times, sangomas lived and died without a partner in their lives. Over time, they evolved and fell in love, and this process helps smooth out what could be a very complicated relationship.
"It allows your ancestors to understand and give space to the person that is in your life and it allows a sangoma to have a healthy and peaceful relationship."
