Because all cultures are equal?

An eight-year-old schoolboy has married a 61-year-old woman because the ghost of his dead ancestor told him to.  Sanele Masilela tied the knot with Helen Shabangu, 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.

It’s not so much the silliness of the 8 year old that is at issue but rather the grotesque acceptance of this by all the adults involved, not least the 61 year old who now has an 8 year old husband. I suggest that South Africa has bigger issues than Nelson Mandela’s health.

  1. Reminds me of the bits of little boy found floating in the Thames some years back.
    And the boy beaten to death because he was possessed.
    Then there’s the South African Aids Prevention programme for men.
    Find the youngest baby girl available and have intercourse with her…

    Only if you’re racist or elitist.
