Deputy President Kgalema Motlanthe said I do to Gugu Mtshali, his partner of many years in a lavish ceremony held in Houghton, a street away from their home.

The wedding was attended by the Who’s Who of local politics – with Jacob Zuma, Cyril Ramaphosa, Trevor Manuel, Zwelinzima Vavi, Lindiwe Sisulu, Tokyo Sexwale and Zweli Mkhize among the guests. The bride’s son, Mbongeni Mtshali, accompanied her down the aisle. Mtshali looked amazing in an off-white, long-sleeved gown accentuated by cream beading. She later donned a fur stole to keep the cold at bay.

The couple celebrated their nuptials with friends and family, while musician Ringo Madlingozi sang their praises.
