- South Africans are joining in to congratulate Reneilwe and Mpho Letsholonyane, calling them an influential couple
- Some want to see the creative midfielder back at Kaizer Chiefs as they still rate him the best
- The seasoned sports journalist and the Rockets midfielder have been in love for more than a decade
South African football legend Reneilwe Letsholonyane's wife, Mpho, has taken to Twitter to celebrate her wedding anniversary with her husband.
The man is also known as 'Yeye' to his admirers and is now contracted to TS Galaxy, a club from Mpumalanga that campaigns in the DStv Premiership.
Formerly on the books of Jomo Cosmos, Kaizer Chiefs and SuperSport United, the Soweto-born legend has been married to the SuperSport television broadcaster for three years.
In a Twitter post on Wednesday, Mpho said she will love the dreadlocked star today, tomorrow and always. She tweeted:
“I love you today, tomorrow and always...
“Over a decade of loving you and 3 years as your wife. Through the ups and the downs, I will continue to choose you, till we are old and grey. Happy anniversary my love .”
South Africans didn't waste a moment to congratulate the duo while a few also grabbed the opportunity to also share jokes on the photograph.
@Matlhomola Morake, former media and liaison officer at the South African Football Association said:
“Happy anniversary to one of my favourite couples. May you see many more. God's grace and mercy be with you at all times. Happpppppyyyyyyy.”
"Ngesintu umfazi ohlala phansi ecansini bese indoda ihlala esofeni. Lol ngyadlala. (In our culture the woman has to sit on the floor and the man on the couch. Lol, I'm kidding). Happy anniversary Mr & Mrs. Letsholonyane."
@Thethile10 posed a relevant question to the love birds out of inspiration:
“Umbuzo wami uthi, nenze njani ukuthi nifike lana. Phela most celebs don't. (My question: how did you manage to get here? Most celebs don't reach such milestones). Happy anniversary...”
“I love the love you have for each other and you are such an inspiration. May God of Mount Zion continue protecting, guiding, loving, and blessing your union (Marriage) .”
@Mahlomo 08956299 could not hide his admiration for the footballer, saying he still wants the creative midfielder at Amakhosi.
“The player I will always cherish, still crying for that Man in our Khosi team but ja behind every man there's you know a happy soul he is.”
@AsandeLumka recalled seeing a report in the media that the two are set to part ways:
“Happy Anniversary. To think I recently saw this report suggesting that you guys are divorcing on opera mini..amanga wodwa (only lies).”
Recently, Briefly.co.za reported on a story where television stars Salamina and Tshepo Howza Mosese celebrated their 12th wedding anniversary.
This website has learnt that the two personalities have been married for an incredible more than a decade and have not stopped serving #couplegoals since the day they said their "I-do"s.
They are living proof and testament that true love still exists. The couple first met on a local drama soapie, Backstage, years ago. They clicked instantly and are still going strong.
