Jean-Jacques Rousseau says, “Patience is bitter, but its fruit is sweet.” This best describes Mandisa and Skhumbuzo’s journey, as they’ve had to exercise a little patience with each other, in order to get to where they are today.

The couple met in 2012. Mandisa was hitching a ride to town. Initially, Skhumbuzo just drove past her but then turned around after a few minutes to offer her a lift. Once in the car, Mandisa dozed off and Skhumbuzo’s devious nature kicked in!

He took her phone while she was sleeping and sent a “Please Call Me” text message to his phone, just so he could get her number. Mandisa wasn’t too pleased when Skhumbuzo finally called in the evening and she asked him to delete her number.       

For the next six years of their relationship, they’ve gone through several challenges, just like any other couple. At some point, the thought of ending the relationship crossed Mandisa’s mind.

The couple has however, managed to work things out and stay together and they are finally getting married.
