Patience Ramalibe, a 56-year-old woman is a South African woman who is making headlines.
The woman is being talked about after it was found out she was paying her daughter-in-law not to cheat on her son, Phendulo Ramalibe.
According to Daily Sun SA, every month Patience allegedly pays her son’s wife, R3 000 to stop cheating on her son.
However, although the young lady takes the money, she apparently does not stop cheating – but Patience keeps on paying!
According to her: “I’ll do anything to make her stay with my son”
Patience told Daily Sun she saw her makoti hugging and kissing another man.
“I am scared to ask her to stop cheating,” said Patience. “So I work very hard at my salon and manage to save R3 000 every month which I give to her.”
The wife (name withelf) takes the money every month, but the cheating has not stopped.
Daily Sun SA reports that the woman and Phendulo Ramalibe (27) got married in 2014. The three of them live together in a flat in the Joburg CBD.
They seemed to be happy, but then Patience discovered that her son’s wife was cheating.
“I pay her so she must stop cheating. I love her. I am waiting for my provident fund money and I will share this with her,” she said. “Phendulo tells me he loves her very much. He says she is good in bed.”
Phendulo spoke to Daily Sun on the phone and said he had pleaded with his wife not to cheat.
“She lives a double life. It breaks my heart to share my beautiful wife with another man. Please talk to her and tell her to stop,” he said.
However, the wife made her position very clear on the matter.
“This is my life and my body. If it is about her money, tell her she can keep it,” she said. “Yes, there is another man. I am still young. I want to enjoy life. I am a woman. I must go outside to get real satisfaction.”
Then she said: “What does my life story have to do with Daily Sun?”
Patience said the wife and Phendulo have not had children together but they are raising her child.
“We are a family,” said Patience, a former schoolteacher. She said there is a strong bond between her, her son and his wife that will never be broken: “The man she cheats with has nothing. He sells brooms in the streets of Springs and Joburg.”
However, she does say Phendulo’s wife is doing her best.
“She sings beautifully. She wants to be a singer. She records CDs,” said Patience.
