A 52 year old South African Woman, Thembisile Ntaka has confessed to being a virgin and never kissing a man in her entire life.
She made this revelation at an event organised by Thekwini Municipality at Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban on Tuesday night.
Even at my age, I still go to Umkhosi woMhlanga.
I began this journey when I was 14 years old. I get a lot of people criticising me for being a virgin and not having children. Some even tell me I will die a lonely woman. But that does not make me want to change my life.
Thembisile said that she is one of the most respected women in Botha’s Hill, encouraging young women to remain virgins.
I’m the lastborn at home. My eight siblings got married and left me with my brother’s two children.
She said when she was young she heard her brothers’ friends saying bad things about the girls they’d had sex with.
I decided then I didn’t want to be one of those girls. Each time there is virginity testing in her area, I am always the first one in line.
I don’t care if I die without children or a husband. I’m happy with my life and so is my family.
