Revealed | Somizi And Mohale Were Not Legally Married And Mohale Can’t Prove Lobola Was Paid
Despite all the bad publicity and noise surrounding their marriage and, ultimately, divorce, details indicate that reality TV star Somizi Mhlongo and Mohale Mataung were not legally married.
Their divorce proceedings have allegedly hit a snag after it was revealed that they never registered their marriage with the department of home affairs, The South African reports.
Somizi revealed this on his Showmax reality show, Living the Dream with Somizi:
I knew with the marriage, there would be challenges, naturally, but there are challenges where you can see that this is going to hell. So when they told us that the pastor did not bring the certificates, I was like, look at God!
City Press reported that the non-registration of Somizi and Mohale’s marriage is the one that is now dragging their divorce proceedings.
Their lawyers are in negotiations because there is a large estate at stake here. The biggest issue is that the marriage is not registered and, naturally, it would fall under customary law, but that is something Mohale is struggling with because he is not in possession of a letter proving that lobola was paid for him.
Somizi Mhlongo says Mohale Motaung won’t get a cent from him.
Somizi revealed that his marriage to Mohale was not registered.

Mohale is reportedly walking this draining journey alone with no help from his family because they never approved of the marriage in the first place.
