Kanye — President Dr Mokgweetsi Masisi and First Lady Neo Masisi on April 21 joined residents of Kanye to witness Mr Kagiso Mosarwane walking his long time sweetheart, Tuduetso, down the aisle at Lodubeng Park.
Speaking during the occasion, Mr Basimanyana Masire applauded the first family for scheduling time to interact with ordinary Batswana. He said their presence was an expression of their blessings and a breath of new life into the union.
Mr Masire, brother to the late former statesman, Sir Ketumile Masire, encouraged the couple to cherish the gesture and use it as fuel during the hardest of times. Mr Masire also wished the couple a blissful journey ahead.
The first family later had a private meeting on the sidelines of the celebrations with the couple with a view to giving them a word of counsel.
The bride's aunt, Ms Gosenyamang Setiko thanked the couple for sticking together through thick and thin. She described the bride as a strong, level-headed woman who would prove to be a good wealth for her husband and his family. She also applauded Mr Mosarwane for solemnising his long standing union with the bride. She said Mr Mosarwane was a pair of hard working hands and commended him for unfailingly providing for his family. But just like any man that ever lived, she described the groom as work in progress and encouraged his wife to make peace with imperfection.
Pastor Isaac Plaatjie of ERP Unity Church applauded the couple for the timing of the wedding and prayed for the same mighty strength that raised Christ from the dead to bless the union. He encouraged the couple to make God the foundation of their house. He said building a house without God was all in vain.
Pastor Plaatjie most of all advised the couple to complement rather than compete with each other, adding that it was not God's plan for a man to be alone. He also encouraged the bride to be hospitable at all times, provide warmth for the family and become a tower of strength for her husband.
Meanwhile, the crowd later seized the opportunity to meet and greet the first family, congratulate them for their ascension to the highest office and wished them well. The family later travelled to Moshupa to grace Tshepo and Amo Ramooki's wedding at Nkaikela ward. END
