Zama and her friends used to mock Mandla during their trips on the train. Little did they all know that one day, he’d be the man she walks down the aisle to marry.

Mandla spotted Zama while sitting with her friends on the train one day and went up to talk to her. Unfortunately, she wasn’t quite interested in him at first and what made it worse was the fact that her friends didn’t find appealing. They used to mock him whenever he’d come by to talk to her on the train. 

Zama is quite the shy girl and avoided him for the better part of the courtship hence, Mandla came up with a brilliant plan to express his feelings. He wrote her love letters! He’d even top it off with chocolates sometimes.

This went on for a while and it was only when Zama was in her third year at varsity, that they agreed to starting a relationship. Excited by this new development, Mandla went straight to his brother and told him that he had found the woman of his dreams and plans to pay lobola were set in motion.

Mandla surprised Zama with a beautiful engagement ring on her birthday. She wasn’t expecting it! Tonight, they start their forever after and invite the rest of the country to celebrate with them.
