Our favourite Uthando Nes’thembu wives ranked

2018-01-19 13:37

Johannesburg - After Thursday’s episode of Mzansi Magic’s Uthando Nes’thembu – a reality show that follows businessman Musa Mseleku and his four wives – it’s clear polygamy isn’t always a happy arrangement. Yes there are good moments, but the introduction of a new girlfriend is not always a joyous moment for wives.

In yesterday’s episode it was revealed that Musa’s original second wife, Sindi MaSaule, died in a car accident and the episode was a tribute to her. We also learnt – besides MaCele’s pompous nature and MaKhumalo’s heart of gold that is – that MaSaule was a darling.

She knew all of Musa’s girlfriends and was good to them and she was friends with MaKhumalo (who was just a girlfriend at the time) and MaNgwabe. It’s rare that a wife gets on with her husband’s girlfriends, and it seems the first and second wives MaCele and MaMyeni were not happy about this revelation. 

We’ve ranked Musa’s wives in order of our favourites:

1 MaSaule

Even though she died before we could meet her, from the way she’s described she was a beautiful soul. She loved her husband’s girlfriends – maybe because she knew it was not about her, but her husband. MaKhumalo said she used to buy her lunch every day without fail and even lived under the same roof. When MaKhumalo had to visit her family home on weekends, MaSaule didn’t want them to be separated. Fam, let’s agree, she was a rare breed.

2 MaKhumalo

She is the most loved wife in the Mseleku household – maybe she learnt from the best, MaSaule. However, in last week’s episode it was disclosed that she struggles to bear children. This was one of the emotional episodes on the show because people just love MaKhumalo’s good heart. She loves Musa’s kids and the feeling is certainly mutual. But to know that she can’t have kids of her own really broke people’s hearts. Messages of comfort were sent and with God by her side we hope she receives her greatest gift soon. Many say she should have been the first wife because she is considerate and loving.

3 MaNgwabe

She is sweet and is one of the two Twitter favourites on the show. MaNgwabe is a nurse and her baby underwent an operation in last week’s episode. Oh, and she gives to the less fortunate!

4 MaMyeni

In the first season it was revealed that MaMyeni was Musa’s first girlfriend but MaCele ended up being the first to wed Musa. She speaks slowly and you don’t know whether she is interested in anything because all she does is play her favourite game, Candy Crush.

5 MaCele

She has the first wife entitlement but her husband respects and loves her. She is also referred to as Mamkhulu. We admire her for welcoming the other wives into her life, because we know it is not easy. She might be difficult to deal with at times but it is not easy to move from being the only wife to being the first of five wives. Even though she is not Twitter’s favourite wife we should all cut her some slack and allow her to enjoy the perks of being uMamkhulu!

Now tell us who your favourite wife is?
