The Young boy, identified as Siyacela Dlamuka, said he was looking forward to making Thando Mathebula his wife officially.
He said: “She’s different and special. I can’t wait to officially call her my wife. On the issue of kids, he said they aren’t planning on having kids just yet. He added that they want to complete the necessary stages of their formal education before they expand their family.”

His Dad, Mthandeni Dlamika, 59, a bishop of the Corinthians Apostolic Church in Zion, said he fully supports the underage marriage.
He said: “These days, you find teenagers engaging in sexual activities secretly and most of the time, they end up falling pregnant out of wedlock.”
When his son told him he had fallen in love, Siyacela’s father took it upon himself to pay for dowry and other expenses so Siyacela could focus on school.
He added: “The only rule I made is that they wait until they’re officially married before engaging in sexual activities. That was the rule I made for my daughters, who are all married now.”
