Lindiwe Motaung’s (53 years) wish to be in the spotlight came true tonight, as her daughters Dineo and Lerato pulled all the stops to organize the perfect Gift of Love for her and husband of 23 years, Jack Motaung (59 years).

You see, Lindiwe didn’t get to wear a white dress and walk down the aisle when she got married to Jack, but instead they had a signing ceremony followed by a traditional wedding.

The couple met way back in high school. Lerato said their mom was attracted by the fact that their father was a hard worker.

“My dad would help neighbours with their garden on weekends. He was a hard worker. He’d buy her flowers and chocolates,” she said.

She said their parents had to come up with different schemes to trick her grandparents just so they could meet. “My grandparents were very strict so my parents had to pretend my dad needed to get his phone charged at my parents’ battery shop,” she added.

The Motaung siblings said they’ve learnt a lot from their parents over the years. Their aunt Ntombifuthi Maphalala chipped in saying, “Their love inspired me a lot. They even wore matching outfits on their wedding day.”

They vowed to go all out for their parents’ Gift of Love and from what we’ve seen earlier, it promises to be lovely ceremony.
