A 60-year-old man, Madala Sello Manzini, from Jerusalem squatter camp in Roodepoort, Johannesburg, claims he has been celibate for 20 years, but says he would love to have sex one last time before he dies
Manzini stated that all his girlfriends either die or leave him before they could have sex.
In a chat with Daily Sun SA, Manzini said he was tired of living, saying he thinks he was bewitched when he was 40 years old and living in Germiston, Ekurhuleni.
“I had a girlfriend and I thought we would get married. I had a good job and everything was fine, but my girlfriend fell ill and died in November 1996.
“We had planned to get married in December that same year. I mourned her death for some time. Years later I started looking for a partner but I never found one.
“I then moved to Orange Farm, South of Johannesburg and found a girlfriend. We never had sex but things were looking good.
“But one day I came home to find I had been thrown out of my shack, so I left Orange Farm and lost contact with my girlfriend. I moved to Mofolo, Soweto where after five years, I again met a woman, but she was run over and died. We were still getting to know each other. We never had sex.
“So, I moved to a run-down house in Snake Park, Soweto and fixed the house but I was evicted there as well. I had met a woman and things were promising but I had to move.
“I’m in Jerusalem now, but I think I might die before I get a woman.
“I was told I won’t have any woman in my life unless I do a cleansing,” Manzini said, adding that someone had suggested to him that he should have hold a cleansing ceremony after his first girlfriend died, as the ‘jealous’ spirit of his late girlfriend was following him.
