9years old South African boy Saneie marries 62years old Helen

The 9years old boy that married a  year old lady

In 2013, there was news of an 8-
year-old South African school boy who
 Married a 61 year old South African woman to
“make ancestors happy”. (Sowie I didn't post it here)

He spoke about his new life with the

The boy Saneie Masilela, who is now 9 years old
is the world’s youngest groom for the second
time after remarrying the 62-year-old woman
he married last year.

Although the villagers and onlookers
describe this wedding as “sickening”, the young
groom saneie dressed in a silver tuxedo says he did it
again to make the marriage “official”.

Not minding the 53-year-age gap, they
repeated their vows a year later with 100
guests in attendance.

 His 62years oldbride Helen Shabangu is a mother
of 5, with children aged between 28 and 38
years old.

The wedding ceremony took place in front of Helen’s
long-term husband Alfred Shabangu.

 He said
“My kids and I
are happy because we don’t have a problem
with her marrying the boy – and I don’t care
what other people say.”

Both families claim the wedding is simply
“ritual” after the young school boy was told by
his dead ancestors to wed last year.
The boy however hopes he would have a
proper wedding to a woman his age in the
future.(to me , mehn this guy is weird,if he'd have a proper wedding, why not with a woman at least 2)
0something). Anyways read on.

“I told my mother that I wanted to get
married because I really did want to.
I’m happy that I married Helen – but I will
go to school and study hard.
When I’m older I will marry a lady my
own age. I chose Helen because I love
her and, although we don’t live together
all the time, we meet at the dumping site
where my mother works regularly.”

Helen told reporters that she is excited
that Saneie chose her.

“One day Sanele would
grow normally and have family of his own and
get married one day, all this ceremony is for
making ancestors happy. We are playing.” she

Saneie's mother is also fine with the
wedding, telling journalists;
“He was just happy to get married, very
excited and was not embarrassed about

So much so he wanted to do it again.

After the wedding last year people keep
asking them question like will they live
together, sleep together, have babies but
I keep telling them that after the wedding
everything went back to normal –
nothing changed.

Sanele moved to Venda not long after the
wedding because he wanted to learn a
new language, but they are very close.

Our families are very close.

It was a nice wedding, after all it was a calling from
the ancestors.
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.”
