Caster Semenya denies lobola rumours

By Farren Collins | May 13, 2014 | COMMENTS [ 100 ]

Caster Semeya today dispelled any rumours of an impending engagement to fellow athlete, Violet Ledile Raseboya, as reported earlier this week.

“There is no wedding. Don’t believe the rumours you read in the news.”

Semenya would not confirm reports of lobola being paid to the family of Raseboya or the amount of R25000 reported to have been offered by her family for the right to marry her long-time partner Violet Ledile Raseboya.

Instead the Olympic silver medalist seemed focused on her upcoming season, which she is busy preparing for.

“Right now I am very focused on my studies and athletics, there is nothing else going on.”

Under the continued tutelage of coach Maria Mutola, Semenya claims that she is injury free and that her training is going well.

Semenya plans to run 3-4 races on the IAAF Grand Prix circuit in Europe but her main aim for this season is the upcoming Commonwealth Games to be held in Glasgow in July this year.

“That is the big one. The Commonwealth Games are what we are working toward and where we want to succeed.”

It seems there won't be any wedding bells anytime soon.

She knows being lesbian is evil, that's why she's ashamed that she paid lobola.

100% correct and I don't understand why our SA constitution supports such evil thing!

Do you guyz expect Caster to live a lonely life all her life while Violet is there for to love unconditionally? I doubt there are men out there who finds her attractive anyway...She's a unique being and she must embrace it to the latter so than live in misery trying to conform to 'society's norms"...

Coomunism goes hand in hand with satanism. Our Constitution is based on Communists ideolgies. It goes without saying that it will support evil behaviour. We are bound to respect everything in the Constitution whether we are for or against.

Caster is not the only shemale on earth. She need not apologise to the world as she was made by nature. Just stop the denial and enjoy your gal.
