A 52-year-old woman married her son-in-law in Kwazulu natal, leaving her daughter and one-year-old grandson in shock.

The 19-year-old daughter Ntobeko was happily married for over two years before her mother Fundi Lesetedi fell in love with Sifiso, 22, when she visited the young couple to take care of the ailing son-in-law.

The romance continued to blossom even after Fundi left for her home in Durban with the duo talking for hours over the phone, sources said.

Fundi’s husband worked in a Joburg factory, giving enough opportunity to Sifiso and Fundi for clandestine meet-ups. They married in a court ceremony on Valentines day last month.

Fundi’s former husband brought his daughter home but Daily Express couldn’t confirm if Sifiso obtained a formal divorce.

“When my wife and son-in-law have married each other, what is the use of leaving my daughter with them,” he said.

Post-marriage, the newly-weds are staying together, police said. “They have local society’s sanction and no complaint has been filed to allow us to legally intervene in any way,” police officials told this publication.
