South African polygamist, Musa Mseleku who became popular when the Mzansi Magic’s polygamy-themed reality show Uthando Nes’thembu took SA by storm, has claimed that polyandry is an attack on institution of marriage.
Mseleku made the claim when asked to comment on the proposal of women marrying more than one husband being a recognized as a form of marriage in South Africa.
The popular polygamist in the interview on eNCA, also said that polyandry would cause “a lot of commotion and confusion”.
“I can tell you, this is a mere, straightforward attack on the only institution that should be protected and preserved — which is marriage. I do not even understand where those activists are coming from.
“I think maybe they are driven by so much of trying to portray certain things as equality, whereas they don’t understand the fundamentals of where we (polygamists) are coming from with the institution of marriage. Polygamy does not just exist because a man has got a desire to have many wives.”
