WHEN a man proposed love to Siphiwe Nkalanga she saw red.
She moered him so hard it put him in hospital.
THIRTY YEARS LATER, SHEa��S STILL A VIRGIN a�� AND GOING BLIND!
The tough gogo from Thambokhulu near Malelane in Mpumalanga has never had sex.
Worried sister Joyce (52) said the family thought that life without a man was making Siphiwe (62) suffer (BOTH PICTURED ABOVE).
a�?Since she beat that man up all other men in the village have been too scared to speak to her,a�? she said.
a�?They feared a beating, even though some loved her.a�? Joyce said a doctor told them three years ago that a lack of sex was affecting Siphiwea��s eyesight.
a�?He said she must have sex to make her body produce hormones called serotonin and oxytocin,a�? she said. a�?He said these are love hormones that heal depression.
a�?Even at her age, I want to see her fall in love and live happily like other women.a�?
But Siphiwe said: a�?I dona��t care what the doctor said.
a�?I have nothing against men, as long as they stay far, far away from me.
a�?I will never get married. I want to stay a virgin forever.a�?
Daily Sun tracked down the would-be lover Siphiwe beat up all those years ago.
Hea��s a happily married man and a father of grown children who doesna��t want to be named.
a�?I think she attacked me as there was something wrong with her,a�? he said.
a�?My sin was pouring my heart out. I truly loved her and thought she could be my wife.
a�?But she turned me into a joke. I was the laughing stock of the village for years. And her reputation as a man beater spread like wildfire. Ia��m still scared of her! So are all the other men who grew up with her.a�? – oNLINE
