TSOLAMOSESE: Limbs or no limbs, love conquers all. On Saturday, Felinah Ditshuge of Gabane, married her sweetheart, Ditshuge Keokeditswe of Sefhophe, despite the husband having no arms or legs.

They have lived together for  16 years, bearing seven children, three boys and four girls. Ditshupo had been living a normal and productive life as a construction worker until 2012,  when a fatal  electricity accident cost him all the limbs while on duty at a site at Game City.

“We have gone through rough times together. We stood and fell together and believe me my wife is a very remarkable woman,” he said with a light smile on his face. He said that even though he was not making a lot of money as a carpenter, he was able to feed his family and pay for his children’s school fees.
