An eight-year-old schoolboy has married a 61-year-old woman – because a ghost told him to.

Sanele Masilela exchanged rings with mother-of-five Helen Shabangu – before the newlyweds shared a kiss.

Dressed in a bow tie and shiny silver suit, the boy from Tshwane, South Africa, said he had been told by his dead ancestors to wed and his superstitious family, fearing divine retribution, paid £1,000 for a wedding.

The bizarre ceremony has shocked the community but the family defended it, saying it was just a ritual and not legally binding.

Sanele's 46-year-old mum, Patience Masilela said: "This is the first time this has happened in the family. Sanele is named after his grandfather, who never had a white wedding before he died so asked Sanele to get married. He chose Helen because he loves her.

"By doing this we made the ancestors happy. If we hadn't done what my son had asked then something bad would have happened in the family.

"I didn't have a problem with it because I know it's what the ancestors wanted and it would make them happy.

"I would say that this is not wrong. Sanele was fine and he was happy about the ceremony and it was what he wanted. He was happy to get married and very excited."

Sanele and his bride did not sign a marriage certificate and do not have to live together. Both have gone back to their normal lives.

Sanele said he hoped he would have a proper wedding to a woman his own age when he was older.

"I told my mother that I wanted to get married because I really did want to," he said.

"I'm happy that I married Helen - but I will go to school and study hard. When I'm older I will marry a lady my own age."

Despite being old enough to be his grandmother, bride Helen, whose children are aged between 37 and 27, was happy with the arrangement.

Helen, who works at a recycling centre, said: "I'm married and have five kids of my own, but I know that this is what the ancestors wanted - and now they are happy.

"It is a ritual. We are just playing now, but it is a sign that he will get married one day."

Her husband of 30 years, Alfred, 65, said: "My kids and I are happy. We don't have problems with it but some of the community members were shocked."

superstition rules in Africa and that's why the weirdest stories come from there.

I think he had a nightmare...Usually kids his age dream about being an astronaut but being sucked into a black hole is all the same..
