But Pearl’s dad is reeling with anger and disappointment.

\n

He accuses the Marawa family of disrespect.

\n

He says they are ignoring the fact that they must pay ilobolo for his daughter.

\n

Bhekizizwe told Sunday Sun: “The Marawa family treats Pearl as their makoti. But they haven’t united the two families in the traditional way.

\n

“And I’m still waiting for the Marawas to come for ilobolo negotiations.”

\n

The angry taxi boss told the People’s Paper: “Pearl told me about the engagement. But she didn’t say when the Marawa family were planning to pay ilobolo for her.

“In my family, ilobolo is paid. And only then can they claim our daughter as their makoti.

\n

“I get the impression this family undermines me as Pearl’s father,” he said.

\n

But the old man said he’s not planning to call the Marawa family and ask for ilolobo payment.

\n\n\n\n

“Why should I go to them?”

\n

“They know how we do things as traditional people. They know they must do the right thing.

\n

“And the Marawas have a background of rural life. They know exactly what they must do.

\n

“Pearl hasn’t said anything to me about the wedding. I don’t know. Maybe, they got married without my knowledge,” said Bhekizizwe.

\n

He revealed that the Marawa family didn’t inform him about Robert’s father’s death.

“They told me when he was still ill. They even fetched me twice to go and see him in hospital. But they didn’t tell me when he died.

\n

“I only read about his death and funeral in the newspapers.

\n

“Even my daughter didn’t tell me,” he said.

\n

When the MirrorTeam asked him how he got on with Pearl, Bhekizizwe said: “I don’t want to talk about it. But I have told myself that I raised her and did everything to my power to make her happy.

\n

“Pearl is old enough to choose what’s right for her. I don’t need her to provide for me.

\n

“I have a taxi business that is doing very well. I can take care of myself and my family.”

\n

Robert’s mum, Phumlile Zulu, said the family was still mourning the death of Frank Marawa.

\n

“We can’t think of a wedding anytime soon. We’re still mourning. And I can’t comment on what you’re asking me about,” she said.
