"Polygamy Is No Child’s Play Honestly" - Polygamist Professor Solwayo Ngwenya

Renowned Professor of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, Professor Solwayo Ngwenya (51), a proud polygamist and traditionalist, has said polygamy is no child’s play as it requires lots of resources.

Currently married to three wives who stay with him under one roof, he says polygamy is at the heart of his cultural identity and vows to keep alive the Ngwenya clan even for 100 more years to come. He told The Chronicle:

I come from a deep conservative family. I’m a descendant of the Zwide Kalanga family, which came here with King Mzilikazi with my grandfather as his chief advisor.

Riches and big families have been a part of us since then and there was no way I could rid myself of this rich culture because of education.

Polygamy is one of our cornerstones and I would like to shed more light on the practice, which is founded on equality and ensuring one grows their legacy even beyond their life…

You cannot spend all your time with the new wife, no, you’ll destroy your marriage. You have to have resources of course. There is no way you can earn US$100 and you want polygamy, it won’t work! How do you share $100 even among two women?

Women have so many needs including hair, clothes, nails and all sorts of presents they like receiving daily. It’s no child’s play honestly.

Prof Ngwenya, who is also Mpilo Hospital CEO, said he respects women for their household and motherhood duties adding that he would rather have them stay at home and build the clan while he works “so hard to provide for all their needs.” 

He said he treats all his wives equally adding, “No one gets any favours, money or presents from me secretly at home. We declare everything so that our marriage survives. I think serious men should only go for polygamy once they understand its role in our culture.” He added:

They should also desist from having mistresses, it’s against our culture, its either one is in a monogamous relationship or polygamous relationship.

His eldest wife Princess Mnkandla said indeed theirs was a sisterhood as they never felt they were in competition although they share one man.

MaMnkandla the wives had duties to host Ngwenya and the duty roaster is maintained adding that Ngwenya doesn’t have a specific bedroom as he has to be in one of the rooms and “there is never a day where he sleeps alone.”

Solwayo Ngwenya is the renowned COVID 19 Prophet of Doom who always predicted the worst & always advocated for harsh lockdowns. He is clearly an imbecile. Multiple concurrent ****ual partnerships (MCSP) are one of the leading spreaders of HIV/AIDS & STIs. A doctor of all people should know that. Polygamy is just greed & it is a primitive & harmful cultural practice. Maybe thats why Ngwenya wanted harsh COVID lockdowns - so that he could get more COVID 19 allowances to feed his harem of wives.

Ngwenya's cultural beliefs undermine gender equality & women's Rights. He sees women as dependents who must be bought with gifts & trinkets such as hairdoos & clothes. Whereas women should be emancipated & empowered to become self-reliant & self-sufficiant, so that they can afford to buy things on their own. Ngwenya perceives women as baby manufacturing factories that only exist to further his genealogy or clan. He thinks women are property that can be hought with money. Solwayo Ngewnya is the type of man who dies without leaving a will. His wives & nemerous children will fight over that one house where they all live and his numerous children will be scattered all over like street urchins.

What if pindula is actually a social experiment. We could actually be just be lab rats and some institution is funding this experiment to study human behaviour so as to use the result for personal gain.
