Many have had their fair share to say about how the Zungu wives seem to be expected to dress. From suggestions for the ladies to lose the scarves to reveal their true beauty to calls for them to at least lose the scarf.
However, none of us expected the wives to come to this conclusion themselves. After staking out Advocate Molefenyane at his office and house to no avail, Phumelele felt it was the way the wives dress that made the world not take the seriously – and the main problem was the scarf! She said people listened to Sibongile because of how she dressed and they needed to change too.
Looks and beauty have sometimes been a sore point for the Zungu wives. When Mpiyakhe wanted to take Sibongile as his third wife, Siphokazi spent copious amounts of time in front of the mirror trying on lipstick then wiping it off. But now it seems Sibongile has inspired the wives to make wardrobe changes for different reasons – to be taken seriously in Joburg’s modern, fast-paced and judgmental society.
We love the Zungu wives no matter what they wear, and Mzansi loves Phumelele's suggestion for the wives to change their dress sense because Sengwayo and Mkabayi are in jail and their mother-in-law is no more.
Will the Zungu continue to slay even if Sengwayo should be arrested and come home? Stay tuned to #Isibaya every Mon-Fri at 20:30!
