A man identified simply as Simon decided to call off a 30 years marriage, because his wife had not given him a son to continue his family name.
The news was confirmed by 56-year-old Thembeni Khuboni from KwaMancinza in KZN, started acting strangely at the beginning of last year.
She said: “When I asked him why he did it, he just left our home. I heard that he was living with the girl in Phoenix, Durban. I tried calling him but he wouldn’t answer the phone.”
Thembeni said in the middle of last year, Simon came and told her he wanted her to give him a son.
“I told him I couldn’t. I have five daughters with him and he was happy before. Now suddenly he wants a son. I told him I can’t do that,” she said.
Thembeni said then he left and told her he would find a woman who could give him a son. “In September, he came home with a photo of a baby he had with his lover. Unfortunately, the baby is also a girl,” she said.
When the SunTeam contacted him, Simon said he was not the first man to want a son to continue his line.
