Young bride Charity Mumba has rushed to pour water over suspicions, insisting her new hubby Peter Grooves is the love of her life.
Despite her efforts, Charity has come under fire online after a photogaph from the pair's wedding in South Africa went viral.
The new Mrs Grooves, originally from Zambia, moved to South Africa in search of a new life — which she found with her husband Peter. The controversial wedding comes following a reported trend of young Zambian women moving to South Africa in search of wealthy, elderly partners.
Commenting on the wedding snap online, netizen 'Mtokolo Limpo' said: "Zambian women are a disgrace, you come all the way to dine with an old man, what special attention are you going to give him apart from sucking up his money."
'Longlu Vlami' shared their opinion on the matter: "It is sad that women nowadays don’t know how to work hard but just find a life with a finished old man, very soon he is dying and she will inherit his riches."
And 'Mercy Nhlovu' added: "That girl must be taken back to Zambia. Rubbish!"
'Tulani Zulu' commented: "Nice couple, I see nothing wrong if they love each other."
