8 Year-Old Boy Marries 61 Year-Old Woman

Sanele Masilela (8)tied the knot with Helen Shabangu(61), who is already married and a mother-of-five.  The boy, from Tshwane, South Africa, said he had been told by his dead ancestors to wed and his family, fearing divine retribution, forked out for a wedding.  ‘Sanele is named after his grandfather, who was never had a white wedding before he died so asked Sanele to get married. He chose Helen because he loves her.  ‘By doing this we made the ancestors happy. If we hadn’t done what my son had asked then something bad would have happened in the family.  ‘I didn’t have a problem with it because I know it’s what the ancestors wanted and it would make them happy.’
