Businessman married 4 women on same day

A wealthy businessman married four women in one day at one wedding ceremony, according to press reports.

The BBC had reported at the time of the wedding that South African businessman Milton Mbele broke all the traditional rules of a polygamous wedding when he recently married four women on the same day.

"I do not know how much four different weddings would have cost me but I did it all at once to save money," he was quoted as saying.

"For example, I just needed one tent, I had to hire one caterer and one photographer for the whole ceremony."

I started saving money for the event in late 2007 and began collecting quotes from things like the tent and restoration costs at the beginning of last year."

He says he loves all his wives who are: Thobile Vilakazi, Zanele Langa, Baqinisile Mdlolo and Smangele Cele, equally and treats them all like that.

Mbele has four rings on his finger that he says is a sign of his commitment to all his wives.

The four brides dressed in flowing white robes walked down the aisle together, before saying we do to their boyfriend who is 44-years-old.
