Mpumelelo Mseleku, the son of Kwa-Zulu Natal polygamist Musa Mseleku, is facing backlash on social media for not paying lobola (a dowry) to his three girlfriends.
Critics argue that his polygamous marriage is not legitimate until he fulfills this traditional practice.
In an interview, Mpumelelo expressed his admiration for his father’s polygamous lifestyle and his desire to have even more than his father’s four wives. He explained that is’thembu (polygamy) is a gift bestowed by ancestors, and he grew up witnessing it in his own family.
Mpumelelo, who is 22 years old, is determined to embrace a polygamous life and believes that disagreements among wives are normal and part of the journey. The upcoming reality show “Izingane zeS’thembu” featuring the Mseleku family will provide further insight into Mpumelelo’s journey and whether he will pay lobola for any of his girlfriends.

In recent years, Africa has emerged as a focal point for innovative green energy solutions, marking a paradigm shift in the continent’s energy landscape. From bustling urban centers to remote villages, sustainable initiatives are gaining momentum, promising a brighter and cleaner future for millions.
Solar Power Surges Across the Sahara
Harnessing the abundant sunlight, African nations are spearheading large-scale solar projects. Vast solar farms are dotting the Sahara Desert, transforming it into a powerhouse for clean energy production. This shift not only reduces reliance on traditional fossil fuels but also brings electricity to regions that have long struggled with energy poverty.
Wind Farms: Harnessing the Power of the Elements
Coastal regions are witnessing a surge in wind energy projects, with towering wind turbines becoming a common sight. Countries like Kenya and South Africa are tapping into their coastal breezes, generating sustainable electricity and significantly reducing their carbon footprint. The rhythmic dance of wind turbines symbolizes a harmonious blend of nature and technology.
Hydroelectric Initiatives: Navigating the Rivers for Power
Africa’s abundant water resources are being harnessed through innovative hydroelectric projects. Nations like Ethiopia and Zambia are leveraging their rivers to generate clean and reliable electricity. As dams rise along the waterways, they not only provide power but also open avenues for economic development and improved water management.
Local Empowerment through Mini-Grids
In remote areas, mini-grids are empowering local communities. These decentralized energy systems are proving crucial in bridging the energy gap. By utilizing renewable sources such as solar and wind, these mini-grids ensure a steady and sustainable power supply, transforming the lives of those living far from traditional energy infrastructure.
Investment and Collaboration: Keys to Sustainable Growth
International partnerships and investments play a pivotal role in the success of Africa’s green energy revolution. Collaborations between governments, private enterprises, and international organizations are facilitating the development of cutting-edge technologies and the implementation of eco-friendly solutions, fostering a resilient and sustainable energy sector.
As Africa charts its course towards a greener future, the continent stands at the forefront of a global movement. The strides made in green energy not only address the immediate energy needs but also pave the way for a sustainable and environmentally conscious tomorrow. Africa’s commitment to renewable energy signals a beacon of hope for the world in the face of climate change.
