The video posted by @theeyummymummy captured the special moment. They have been dating since they met at a party three years ago and live with Mokgothu’s three sons in Durban Deep.

The bride-to-be said she knew he was saving for the lobola payment but knew nothing of a ring.

Love wins

Two of Mokgothu’s colleagues were in on Motswi’s plan, and they sent her to the front of the store around noon, claiming she needed to fry boerewors for a customer.
