If there’s one couple that has had their love put to the test several times, it’s Kgotlelelo (26) and Thapelo Mofokeng (36).
How they met:
The two met at a function in August last year. Thepelo was about to start his initiation journey, and Kgotlelelo, who had just completed her journey, never imagined he’d be the man she spends the rest of her life with. On the other hand, it was love at first sight for Thapelo.
Their paths crossed again at another function. “The new initiates were helping us, so he was assigned to help me. That’s when the proposal started,” said Kgotlelelo. Elaborating she said she had no idea who gave Thapelo her number. Thapelo jumped in to say he got her number from his spiritual teacher, who used to chat a lot with Kgotlelelo.
“She was surprised when I called her and told her who I was. I thought she would turn me down,” he said. They then started chatting often after this, but some of the other teachers at the initiating school were against their relationship.
“One day they heard me talking on the phone and they thought I was praying but I was proposing during my initiating period. I was reported and they were against our relationship,” Thapelo added. Kgotlelelo recalled of the drama that followed, adding that they were eventually kicked out of initiation school. “We were reported to the association and they realized I had done nothing wrong because he had started the initiation process after we started dating,” she added.
They continued dating after that and Kgotlelelo had to help him finish his initiation. They invited the Our Perfect Wedding crew because they’re huge fans.
