Season 6 of Uthando Nes’thembu debuted Thursday (6 October) night and already viewers can tell that that Musa Mseleku’s fourth wife, Mbali “MaNgwabe” Mseleku, is still the problematic women she was when Season 5 ended last year.

When Season 5 ended, MaNgwabe had made it clear that she was going to leave her marriage should her husband, Musa, continue with wanting to take a fifth wife.

She did clear the rumours that said she had bowed out being Musa’s wife. She has not left…yet.

MaNgwabe and Musa’s third wife, Thobile “MaKhumalo” Mseleku, butted heads last season when MaKhumalo’s father instructed MaNgwabe’s child to open the gate for him following an after school run.

The third wife made it known that her kids will no longer be using the provided transport to go to school, she said she will instead take her kids to school.

Last night, first wife, Busisiwe “MaCele” Mseleku, called a meeting to discuss everything that bothers them as wives and MaKhumalo wasted no time in confronting MaNgwabe.

She told her she was not happy with how her father was treated when he was merely trying to help.

MaNgwabe asked MaKhumalo where her father got the right to abuse her kids when they had nothing to do with their issues?

Things got tense so the wives then moved into something lighter. They mentioned how good Mseleku has been to them.

When MaNgwabe was asked how things are in her marriage, she said it does not matter whether she is happy or unhappy.

MaCele then concluded and said that means she is not happy.

The nurse by profession, went to visit her mother to let her know of developments in her marriage but specifically the fifth wife issue.

MaNgwabe’s mother who was born into polygamy said that Musa had promised them that Mbali was the last wife.

She told her that she will not say she must come back home and leave her marriage just because Mbali is the one who chose to follow her heart and get married.

“If you are no longer happy in love, I won’t force you and tell you to stay in the fire,” said MaNgwabe’s mother.

She also dropped a bombshell and said Musa has not finished paying the lobola and as such how can he want to marry another wife when he has not finished what he owes them.
