MnakwethuHEA: "After God fear Zulu men. They use muthi for everything" Viewers react to the episode

Mnakwethu Happily Ever After season two might as well be changed to "Love Potions galore" with the way things are going now. It is meant to be a show following the journey of being monogamy into polygamy. However viewers are fed up with the constant and casual mention of muthi or love potion.

This week Thembelani was one of the men who wanted to venture there.

MaMthombeni is married to Thembelani and they have a child together. He brought her onto the show to try and convince her to let him marry someone else. The someone else? A fling from the past for him that he dumped before dating her. This brought a lot of jealousy, anger and resentment to the surface and it's never truly been buried for the ladies. Thembelani has since decided there is only one way to fix this. Traditional medicine.

His decision to head into something so dangerous, came after he decided he did not need love potion, just something to make them get along. It was appalling and people were fed up with the show promoting such inhumane behavior. Forcing people to get along for his own selfish reasons is NOT okay.

Social Media Response

People, especially women, were shocked at how casually this was being discussed, as though it doesn't matter at all what they're saying. One user was shocked to learn this, writing, "I can't believe people use muthi, worse that it works 😭 #MnakwethuHEA"

One user was deep into their thoughts when they wrote, "Clearly this show is teaching our men to use muthi🤔#MnakwethuHEA"

While another was stuck on what this means about Zulu men, writing, "After God fear Zulu men. They use muthi for everything😫 #MnakwethuHappilyEverAfter #MnakwethuHEA"

Personal Thoughts

I feel that we often underestimate what it means to have someone use love potion or a potion of any kind on you. The validity is questioned but I have no doubts that it is effective. We've seen this on the show with Mbeje, a sangoma and Philile, his victim who got away. The need to suppress and control ones spouse is where this likely stems from. I cannot support African spirituality being used this way, especially on the year 2022. There needs to be a shift, no one shouldn't be thinking like these men do.
