Basetsana and Romeo Kumalo are one of the South Africa iconic couples. The two have been together for 21 years but married for 19 years.
The couple are one of the richest people. One of their mansion house was shared on social media. That got people talking, as people we won’t have the same taste of things so when it comes to houses, clothes and a lot more, you can’t expect people to like what you like, people will have their opinion when it comes to certain things.
A video of Basetsana and Romeo kumalo’s house was shared on social media by Musa Khawula, below is what Musa Khawula wrote that caused a stir on social media: Basetsana & Romeo Khumalo’s Saddlebrook Estate; Midrand home worth R24 950 000 has reportedly been laying on Property24 for the past 8 years with no buyer.
Anele Mdoda and Pearl Thusi have previously hosted their parties at this lavish home.
People are saying they are not surprised why this house hasn’t been bought even now, they say it is ugly no wonder people are not buying it and the worst part of it, it’s also expensive they should atleast take it down to 15 million maybe people will buy it.
It’s painful how people can say such mean things about their fellow South African. Yes we’re all entitled to our own opinion, but those people stayed in that house probably for years and they loved it. For people to say it’s ugly that’s just mean. But what can we say Twitter is toxic.
