The second season of Uthando Lodumo was full of surprises as Babes Wodumo shared some shocking details about her husband Mampintsha and his love of sex and money.
In the episode, Babes Wodumo (real name Bongekile Simelane) met up with her pastor, Bishop Vusi Dube, to update him on how her marriage has been going. The pair have been seeing him for marital counselling this season.
“Things are going well, it’s just that there are a few things that Mandla is doing” begins the musician during her counselling session at Ethekwini Community Church
The update came after a discussion between Babes Wodumo and her husband regarding allegations from an unnamed woman that Mampintsha had fathered a child outside of his marriage to Babes.
She also said that there had been some discrepancies in their finances that led her to wonder what he was doing with their money without consulting her.
“As his wife, I deserve to get all these answers,” she said during her diary session.
Babes also told the Bishop Dube that she no longer has access to her Instagram. Which would explain why she has not posted on the account in months.
She was the only one who lost access to her Instagram as Mampintsha has kept access to his and she claims that he uses the account to cheat on her.
“When I log on to Instagram, I see the messages that he sent to other female celebrities that I know,” she said.
She added that some of the women he hits on even ask him to stop what he is doing because he is a married man.
Additionally, she told the bishop that he sleeps with every dancer she hires and added that even if she fires them and hires new dancers, he sleeps with them too.
“He’s also dating some of my friends, that really hurt me.”
She also told the bishop about her suspicions that he may have sired a child outside of their marriage, adding that the child in question looks like her friend’s child.
She also believes that the child could be his and that his mother — her mother-in-law — knows this and uses it to blackmail him into doing whatever she wants.
Babes Wodumo told her Bishop Dube that she has no problem with the existence of the child and that she would be willing to help her husband look after the child. She said her only issue was the fact that he was hiding the existence of the child from her, especially because the existence of the child qualifies its mother to become Mampintsha’s second wife under the rules of polygamy.
“Every time I mention this girl’s name, and a few people have seen them together at South Beach multiple times, it explains why he loves going to South Beach.”
Later in the episode, she revealed that the woman Mampintsha was cheating on her with was her childhood friend and that this hurt her deeply.
She also revealed that Mampintsha had previously been in a car accident with this woman and that the incident had been caught on camera and shared online.
She then warned all the women sleeping with Mampintsha that she could do the same thing to them that they are doing to her. That is, she could sleep with their boyfriends.
