She's loved and respected by many because of her kind-hearted nature. So when MaKhumalo revealed that she cannot bear children, it cut deep for all of us.

After a two-week focus on MaCele, our attention was finally directed towards our favourite Mseleku wife, MaKhumalo. It is no secret that MaKhumalo is loved by many, not because of her beauty but also because of her kind-hearted nature. Her understanding of the ways in which polygamous marriage works and her overall love for her entire family has impressed many. Especially considering how some people would never be able to tolerate the ups and downs that come with being involved in such a union.


The respect and love for MaKhumalo grew greater on Thursday night's episode when she revealed that she is infertile due to the biological fact that she does not have fallopian tubes. MaKhumalo had to have them removed due to two consecutive ectopic pregnancies. 

Which means she can't conceive naturally but if she went through an insemination process she could carry a child.

After revealing her difficult situation, viewers of Uthando Nesthembu empathize with MaKhumalo who has clearly shown that she possesses the great qualities of being a mother. MaKhumalo lives with one of Musa Mseleku's daughter from a previous relationship and the two get along like a house on fire.

Since she shared her secret with the rest of the country social media has shown their support towards MaKhumalo.

There was even a national prayer day suggestion that was thrown in there.

And weep they did.

We guess MaKhumalo's situation is something that many viewers could identify with, hence her story hit home for a lot of women and couples who are trying to have a baby.

Respect to MaKhumalo the love she has for the other wives is also very commendable.
