FORMER Kaizer Chiefs defender and now businessman, Jimmy Tau, has allegedly paid R200 000 for ilobolo.
Sunday Sun has learnt that the makoti is Sizakele Manonga.
The ceremony took place a fortnight ago among friends at the Manonga family’sPretoria mansion.
Sizakele is George Lebese’s ex-girlfriend, who found comfort in Jimmy’s arms after a public and violent break-up from George.
The assault case against George is still in court.
A source, whoattended the ceremony at the Manongamansion, said it was a beautiful affair.
“Look, Sizakele’s family has money and Jimmy knows very well that the R200 000 ilobolo he paid was just a drop in the ocean for the Manongas.
“But despite all the drama involvingGeorge, their relationship seems to belegit,” said the source.
Another source close to the couple told the People’s Paper: “We’re happy for them. Jimmy is tired of vat en sit and wants to make a woman out of Sizakele.”
Sunday Sun previously reported that Jimmy had proposed to Sizakele and was planning to send adelegation toSizakele’s home.
“Jimmy likes the fact that she comes from a wealthy family and is independent and has her own money.
“He has his own money, but even so he knows if he marries Sizakele there willalways be financial back-up,” said the source.
The Manongamansion and fleet of cars appeared on Vuzu’s Rich Kids when their son was part of the reality show.
On Friday, the couple refused tocomment, saying that they won’t get into the details of the ilobolo negotiations and won’t further discuss their private lives in the media.
