Watch as schoolboy aged NINE marries 62-year-old bride in controversial South African ceremony

Dressed in a silver suit nine-year-old Saneie Masilela kisses his 62-year-old bride, who is forced to bend down to meet her miniature groom.

His bride towers above him in her sleeveless white dress – she is almost SEVEN times his age.

In a moment that shocked the world the pair kiss at the purple and white ceremony as the bride’s long-term husband Alfred Shabangu, 66, watches.

And from the sombre expression on his face both he and some of the wedding guests aren’t too sure about the controversial union either. Around 100 guests attended the lavish ceremony in Ximhungwe in Mpumalanga, South Africa this week – which is the second time the pair have tied the knot.

But despite some villagers slating the union as ‘sickening’, footage shows colourfully dressed guests singing, cheering and throwing rice over the bride and groom.

The pair are shown being blessed by a minister during the ceremony before the bride shares a kiss with her young groom – and then kisses her long-term husband.

The pair originally married in 2013 in a similar ceremony, but had a second ceremony in order to make their union ‘official’, as the schoolboy insisted they follow South African tradition.
