A brother-sister marriage straight out of Game of Thrones has happened right here in Ghana, believe it or not.
The couple, a Rastafarian identified as Mawena and his sister Dzigbordi, reportedly got married and have a young, four month old child together.
the 30 year old Rastafarian married his sister after a command from ‘God’ – warning him to marry his sister or be killed.
According to the report, the parents of the duo have disowned them for their actions but they remain together and are raising a family.
The country’s laws frowns on incest but 30-year-old Koforidua-based Rastafarian thinks otherwise and believes it is rather in tune with his faith to marry his biological sister.
Mawena who has a four-month old baby boy with Dzigbordi who is blood sister, publicly admits they have been having a good love life ever since they decided to be lovers regardless of what society thinks about them some years ago.
Mawena revealed that he had vision from God to marry her sister after fruitless efforts to find a partner, a comment that left host of the programme Ekow Puncho and listeners spellbound.
“It was there that God told me to marry my sister before things will be okay for me in life, and he told me that if I refused to marry my blood sister, he will kill me and I did not want to die”, he claimed.
“I was not interested in my sister, but I have no option, because I cannot defy my creator,” he added.
Sister turned wife said she is naturally attracted to her brother and when they are in the mood for love making she sees whatever goes on as normal.
Though both have been disowned by their parents for engaging in what could pass for a sacrilege in the African customs and traditions, Dzigbordi said she agreed to marry his brother in fulfillment of God’s direction.
She praised the brother for showing much affection indicating that it informed her decision to leave the parents home and join him in a rented apartment indicating that it will be extremely hard to divorce the man he has much fallen in love with.
