Johannesburg - There's tight security at a wedding venue in East London this afternoon ahead of TV personality Zizo Beda and Home Affairs spokesperson, Mayihlome Tshwete's wedding.

This according to DispatchLive, which is reporting that a number of high-profile politicians including President Jacob Zuma, Home Affairs minister, Malusi Gigaba and Water Affairs minister, Nomvula Mokonyane are expected to attend.

Former Police Commissionar Bheki Cele, Home Affairs Minister, Malusi Gigaba and ANC spokesperson Zizi Kodwa have already been pictured arriving at the church.

Mayihlome, who is the the son of political stalwart, Steve Tshwete and Beda are reportedly getting married at St. Saviours Anglican Church, before heading to the Gonubie Manore wedding venue. It's believed that the wedding reception will be held at the exclusive venue, while the traditional wedding will be held tomorrow in King William's Town.

Zuma has been facing the wrath of politicians and South Africans this week after his shock sacking of Finance minister, Nhlanhla Nene. Since the decision was announced earlier this week, the rand has fallen sharply against international markets, with many pundits fearing the country could soon enter junk status.

Meanwhile, Malusi Gigaba's wife, Norma, posted pictures on her Instagram account of the early celebrations.
