THE TV cameras are rolling, the lights are shining and Nkululeko is part of a perfect television wedding. 
But in front of the TV, in another part of the country, sits furious Nompumelelo. 
Nompumelelo Zulu-Khumalo told Daily Sun she got the shock of her life when she saw her husband getting married on Mzansi Magic’s Our Perfect Wedding on Sunday.
The 37-year-old from Inchanga, west of Durban, said: “I’m still legally married to Nkululeko. He should have asked my permission before remarrying.” 
When she separated from her husband in 2014, she didn’t hold out much hope for a reconciliation, but she didn’t file for divorce and she didn’t tear up her marriage certificate. 
Nompumelelo said she is struggling to get by and lives in a leaking mud house with her eight-year-old daughter. 
Nompumelelo said she met her husband in the early 2000s in Pinetown, where she worked, selling traditional herbal mixtures.
She said they fell in love, he paid lobola and they got married in 2008, in a marriage which was registered at Home Affairs. 
“He had no money. We could not afford a luxurious wedding ceremony,” she claimed.
But in 2014 their marriage went sour when Nkululeko allegedly started cheating.
“He came to the house with a different women every day. He even secretly paid lobola for a woman I didn’t know,” she claimed. 
Eventually their relationship failed. 
“We separated because he was messing around with other women. I complained and he kicked me out of his family house.
“We haven’t had contact with him since. He blocked me on social networks and never took my calls when I made an effort to update him about our daughter.”
Nkululeko neither denied nor admitted the allegations made by his estranged wife.
“What has happened can’t change. I don’t see any reason why I should be talking about this and have my name splashed in the newspapers. 
“I will not be answering any questions regarding this matter,” he said. 
M-Net spokeswoman Nondumiso Mabece said they do not verify the marital status of the people who approach them and ask for their weddings to be featured on the show.
“The show serves as a witness to the couple’s love. It is the couple’s responsibility to declare to each other any other relationships,” she said.
Department of home affairs spokesman Thabo Makgola said Nompumelelo should refer this matter to the department of justice and constitutional development as it deals with marital issues of this kind.
