She has been called a gold digger and all manner of names by social media folks–for marrying a rich man who is over 3 times her age.
Charity Mumba, 29, originally from Zambia, tied the knot with 92-year-old South African Peter Grooves who is described as a ‘very rich man’ after making his fortune in stocks and shares.
“Their wedding follows a spate of marriages in South Africa, where there has been a reported trend of young Zambia women travelling to the country in search of wealthy, elderly husbands,” reports MailOnline.
After their wedding photos went viral on social media, a bunch of social media users have commented, lambasting Charity for being a cheap money seeking-woman.
On Facebook, Mtokolo Limpo said: ‘Zambian women are a disgrace, you come all the way to dine with an old man. What special attention are you going to give him apart from sucking up his money.’
Longlu Vlami also added: ‘It is sad that women nowadays don’t know how to work hard but just find a life with a finished old man, very soon he is dying and she will inherit his riches.’
And Mercy Nhlovu said: ‘That girl must be taken back to Zambia. Rubbish!’
Others came out to support the couple, with Tulani Zulu’ saying: ‘Nice couple, I see nothing wrong if they love each other.’
