Politicians are known for playing the big game in a ruthless field where nothing is off-limits. But once in a while, they show that deep down, they are just human likes us. And today, former DA leader Mmusi Maimane showed us that by celebrating 15 years of marriage to Natalie.

The former DA leader who resigned from the party last year amid the controversial return of Helen Zille paid tribute to his wife via an Instragam post.
He expressed gratitude to the woman who has been a “champion” in their 15-year journey. As he looks forward to the next 15 years in the marriage, Mmusi revealed that Natalie has been an “incredible” friend.

Today, I have been married to this girl for 15 years. It’s been a journey and I’m grateful to God she has been a champion through it. She the strength of our family and an incredible friend to me. We got married and never knew where the journey would take us, we are here today and now to the next 15. Ka lerato.
“We got married and never knew where the journey would take us, we are here today and now to the next 15. Ka lerato,” wrote Mmusi.
Love is worth celebrating especially nowadays when marriages seem to end in splits. Mmusi is setting up a good example that others could emulate despite their political affiliation.
Reaction from fans
Mmusi’s tribute to his wife of 15 years attracted a lot of positive responses, the majority of them congratulating the couple on their journey of love and happiness.
With Mmusi being a pastor, one user was spot on after wishing the couple a lifetime of God’s abundant blessings amongst other things.
Happy anniversary 🎉wishing you both a lifetime of love, joy, happiness and God’s abundant Blessings, wrote Instagram user carol-fagri.
Another user suggested wrote that Mmusi’s long marriage is a sign of his authenticity.
“Wow this shows how of an Authentic man you are!”
Mmusi has set up a good example at a time when cases of gender-based violence are on the rise. If men can take a leaf out this and celebrate their partners in the way the politician has done, then maybe, just maybe, the society could be a better place.
