A Limpopo businessman, Ephraim "Jealous" Masutha, credits his wives for his success. The traditional healer and business tycoon own a string of shops and businesses.
His first business was selling fruit and vegetables from his bicycle. Without any formal education, he grew his empire to include supermarkets, hardware stores, a hotel, funeral parlour and a filling station.
Masutha said that his success was due to his polygamous marriage to sisters Anna and Maria.
Briefly.co.za learned that his father had married and lived with five wives at the same home he lives now and he is proud to be following in his father's footsteps according to sowetanlive.co.za.
Masutha has 12 children with his wives, two of them are girls.
Dr Mathole Motshekga, a cultural expert, said that marrying sisters is not a taboo.
"It's been happening before in cases whereby a married woman was unable to bear children for her husband, her younger sister would be brought in to help carry her sister's kids."
