– Twin sisters marry the same man on the same day
– “We have always done everything together. We share everything.”
From their appearance to their sense of style, twin sisters Owami and Olwethu Mzazi have a number of things in common.

But the 26-year-olds share more than just their looks — they are both married to the same man.
This lucky man is 51-year-old Mzukiseni Mzazi from Vosloorus in South Africa.
According to local reports, the inseparable sisters always dreamed of marrying one man and their cherished dream finally came true.

In an interview with South African magazine, Owami said:“We have always done everything together. We share everything. That is how our grandmother raised us. So when we decided to marry, we said any man that wants to marry one, will marry the other.”
While polygamy is illegal, South African customary law affords a generous amount of benefits to polygamous unions, ranging from inheritance rights to child custody, thanks to a 1998 law that allowed for such.
Many of the indigenous Bantu peoples, both Christians and Indigenous, are polygamous and Islamic South Africans such as the Cape Malays, Cape Coloureds and Indian South Africans who are Muslim also allow for polygamy.
Jacob Zuma, the current president of South Africa, is a self-proclaimed polygamist.
