During the latest episode of Uthando Nesthembu, Musa Mseleku expressed his desire to take a fifth wife, leading to a conversation with MaCele. Musa emotionally shared his feelings of helplessness when his current wives refused to give their approval for him to marry another woman. Overwhelmed by his emotions, Musa cried uncontrollably and felt like a failure.
After the discussion, Musa left, leaving MaCele crying like a baby. She became emotional because she didn’t want any of the other wives to leave. The revelation that MaYeni and MaNgwabe knew each other added to the tension. MaCele, despite her diary entries, hopes that her insistence that the upcoming marriage will not lead to any of the wives leaving will resolve the situation.
