Kaundula, Twin wives and kids
It may sound unrealistic or even bizzare, as it is believed that no woman wants to share her lover with another woman, but reverse is the case of this story of these Zambian twin sisters who decided that they are going to be married to just ONE man! He either takes both or have None!
I understand that twins do share many things, but to now share the same Husband goes way beyond my imaginations!
The Tswana, Botswana twins are married to 25-year-old Kays Kaundula, who lives in Livingstone Island in Zambia.
Kaundula, his wives Grace and Gracious and his three daughters from the two twin sisters show off their family and lifestyles.
Kaundula runs his own motor vehicle mechanical workshop in Livingstone Island’s residential area and shares a house with his wives.
Kaundula however was later to discover that the sisters shared a cell phone and that in his conversations he proposed love to both sisters and both accepted.
A visit to plot 140, the residence of Kaundula, was met with a sweet greeting of small twin girls, who are Kaundula’s four-year-old daughters from Gracious.
Gracious and Grace seem happily married and Gracious even says when her daughters grow up and decide to get married, she would want them to get married to one man.
“I want them to be together just like us. This is what we set for ourselves as we grew up and we are happy that we have achieved what is good for us and our children,” she says.
Asked what they would do if Kaundula decided to get another wife since he was already in a polygamous status, the two sisters at the same time reply, “we will divorce him.”
Kaundula’s marriage is one which he says he first could not understand as he was first confused when he met the two sisters.
“I was picked by an amateur football team to play in Gaborone in Botswana and after one game as I walked out of the stadium I was greeted with a sweet voice from one of my wives, I can’t tell who. I was told that I had played a nice game.
“From there I continued talking to her or now realise that it was them on a cell phone as I later discovered that they were using one phone so I was talking to either of the two every time I called,” Kaundula says.
He says their relationship continued from phone conversations until he was later to meet them again as if by destiny’s design in Livingstone when they visited one of their sisters.
“After I left Botswana, I enrolled at Livingstone Institute of Business and Engineering studies and I happened to one day meet one the twins when they came to visit their sister who was staying near the institute and from there here we are,” he said.
Kaundula, who is chief executive officer of Kays Auto Services dealing in engine overhaul, servicing, electric repairing and motor vehicle repair consultancy, says he was told by the twins when he proposed that they wanted to get married to one man and if he was not ready, he would have neither of them.
He said he underwent a few difficulties with his own family when he told them of the marriage arrangement.
He says that he can now tell his wives apart, unlike the early days when he first met them. Kaundula says they would both answer to any of their names when he called.
Asked how people in the community react to the marital arrangement, Gracious and Grace say they have been told that they did a right thing.
Kaundula has continued with his football career with Blue Arrows Football Club who train at the Zambezi Sports Club under the sponsorship of the Zambia Air Force.
