Me: yes! Yes! I made it  I made it mum I can't believe it...8 distinctions.

Mum: i can! 

She had that beautiful smile on her face that just lit up the room. My mum is beautiful.  She has this glow about her that makes you believe that everything will surely be okay. When she speaks everybody listens its like the world stops just to listen to her.

I smiled as she came to give me that warm hug. As her ear laid on my left breast so that she can hear my heart beating.

Mum: you know i can listen to that the whole day.

Dad: i know and that is why i am always Jelous. E le gore mpotse moh Mma Lehae o nyetse mang? Nna goba Lehae ( tell me here Lehae's mum who did you marry? Me or Lehae)

I laughed 

Mum: if your asking me who to choose between you and Lehae i am pretty sure you dont want to hear the answer.

Dad: ok let's leave it.

We both laughed 

Dad came to us and we did the group hug.

Voice: ncooo isn't that sweet

We all turned only to find my 5th mum but i prefer to call her aunty because she's just young and she looks like she's my age.  She's 35 and very beautiful. Her story with my dad is very complicated but that's a story for another day.

Aunty: i heard you passed all your subject. Congratulations. 

Me: uhhmm thank you

She looked at dad

Aunty: hunny can i have you for a couple of hours

Dad: not today Mojadibe today i am throwing the biggest party this village has ever seen. My son has made me proud

Aunty: Sefofu passed his grade 9 and you didn't throw him a party. 

Dad: don't don't even try it..i love all my children equally and my first child passed his matric very well. All 90-100%. Not below. So please  can you put a pause on whatever your thinking. 

My dad took my statement and went out.

My aunt just looked at me with a lot of anger. 

Aunty: did you put him up for this?

My mum looked at her intensively 

Mum: you will never find peace.

Aunty: mxm

She walked out

Me: what was that all about?

Mum: nothing.. lets go out for a strall.. i want you to choose the 3 fattest pigs and i want teach you how to make my famous traditional beer

I smiled

Me: i would love that.

Mum: ofcourse you would.

We walked out

It feels like yesterday when my husband  came to my university to give students bursaries.  Unfortunately I was not one of them. He was very charming and handsome. He walked and talked money. I was so inlove that i ended up googling him and i found out the he was a king and married to 2 wives and just got engaged.  I was shocked. So i got intrigued.  I heard that he will be going to a certain club around KZN so me and my friends raised money to get the VVIP tickets so that we can hang with them. Mindo i was in my first year of varsity. And just turned 18. Obviously i throwed myself at him and he took a bite. He was a bit dissapointed that i was not a virgin but i made sure i gave him the experience of a lifetime. THE BEST SEX EVER. He got married to his 3rd wife don't even try it..i love all my children equally and my first child passed his matric very well. All 90-100%. Not below. So please  can you put a pause on whatever your thinking. 

My dad took my statement and went out.

It feels like yesterday when my husband  came to my university to give students bursaries.  Unfortunately I was not one of them. He was very charming and handsome. He walked and talked money. I was so inlove that i ended up googling him and i found out the he was a king and married to 2 wives and just got engaged.  I was shocked. So i got intrigued.  I heard that he will be going to a certain club around KZN so me and my friends raised money to get the VVIP tickets so that we can hang with them. Mindo i was in my first year of varsity. And just turned 18. Obviously i throwed myself at him and he took a bite. He was a bit dissapointed that i was not a virgin but i made sure i gave him the experience of a lifetime. THE BEST SEX EVER. He got married to his 3rd wife i was very angry because i thought he will marry me but i guess i was rong. I know they where engaged but a girl can dream. The coming year on my birthday i heard he was engaged again.. that just made me furious to a point that i confronted him and he told me that i am not from royal blood and i was not pure the community will never approve. He practically told me that i was his mistress.  

I soon made it my mission to make him my husband. No i am not a Gold Digger i am just a materialistic lady.  My stepfather gave me the world everything i needed. Yes! I was sleeping with my stepfather right under my mum's nose even today she doesn't know that's why he spoilt me and gave me what i needed. Anyway as time went on i i started drinking pills and drinking whatever the doctor recommended that will make me pregnant. Yes! We where condomising but it's not that hard to fall pregnant when your a woman. I just made sure every condom has a whole. And Wala! I am pregnant.  He did not believe me at first to a point that he married his fourth wife and started ignoring me. When i finally gave birth my mum brought me to their house and it was confirmed that my son is his and that's how they gave him the name Sefofu. And as from that day he had no choice but to marry me and i wanted a Top Billing wedding and i got it. And i always give him the best. But what annoys me is that witch first wife who my husband can't get over. He can't say NO! to her. No matter how i try. And as much as it hurts to say i can see that he loves her more and all the wives confirms it.

"MmaLehae is the true love of his own life.. we are just here because of tradition"

MxM anyway back to Now. 

i went to see a witch that used to help my mum with her own witchcraft to get ahead in life.

I got inside her hut.. it was on top of a mountain and ofcourse i came alone.

Molwa: i knew you will come

Me: i need to get rid of that woman. She is in my way

Molwa: that woman is the one holding that community.  If she dies the community will fall.

Me: what should i do then i want my husband. 

Molwa: is that what you really want.

I sighed deeply

Me: i just want her gone.. ain't the other ways to get rid of her.

Molwa: she is Queen mother her son will be king

Me: WHAT?!

that took me by suprice

Molwa: i thought you knew

Me: no.. what about my son 15 years living with those witches and nobody bothered to let me know. That woman is getting everything.  Everything!!! That is not right and that is not fair.. this woman is not getting everything NO WAY! Hell will freeze down... i am opening hell.

Later that day

I was sitting with my siblings. They where showing me their reports and they really did good. I was proud of them. The party was amazing i even got some gifts from friends teachers and mothers except Sefofu's mum. She was out the whole day but she just arrived a moment ago.

We where drinking and laughing until Sefofu's mum just grabbed Sefofu by force.

Me: aaah Aunty what are you doing you going to hurt him

She pointed me with a finger

Her: you stay out of this Sefofu ke ngwanake ( Sefofu is my son)

She was practically dragging him. 

I saw dad following them so i did..

When i got there dad was already yelling at aunty

Mojadibe: e le gore why am i married to you when my son has nothing. He will never be king.

Dad: i never asked you to marry me i had four wives who would have took care of Sefofu just fine but Noo you wanted the world.. well guess what Mojadibe you got the world you wanted.

Her face turned red

Mojadibe: my son deserves to be King he is the last son born and i am the last wife.

Dad: says who? I can still marry another woman 

Mojadibe: i dare you!

I heard dad laughing 

Dad: you know what? You are right Sefofu is the last son and you are the last wife meaning you are the last option.  I never loved you Mojadibe and you knew that. Yes! i had sex with you but i always condomised but you and only you know what you did. Sefofu is my son and i except that i love him a lot. I just feel sorry for the womb he came from. Now you listen here the only reason you are still breathing is because of Sefofu so don't you ever mistaken your being alive for me loving you. Nxaa

I pretended to be looking for something as my dad passed by and my aunt came in and paused when she saw me.

Mojadibe: You Will regret the day you where born.. nxaaa

Oookaaay!!!
