Woman 'forces' friend to become second wife to husband

A woman in South Africa has been accused of tricking and then forcing her friend to become her husband's second wife, according to Dailysun.

She reportedly offered Mozambican Bongiwe Ndlovu a job as her nanny but when Bongiwe arrived she was shocked to discover she wasn't needed to look after her friend's children, but to become her husband's second wife.

The 22-year-old, who came to South African, said she was led to believe her childhood friend (23) wanted her to help with her two kids. But when she arrived at her home in Agincourt, Mpumalanga she was locked up.

For two weeks Bongiwe's friend tried to convince her to marry her husband, until she escaped.

Bongiwe told the cops she was locked in her friend's house after she refused to become her husband's second wife.

She said although she saw the husband, he didn't approach her while she was kept in the house.

After Bongiwe managed to escape she approached a resident and told her the story.

The resident took her to the Mhala Police Station and she opened a case against her friend.
