Comrades Marathon runner Joseph Kagiso Ndlovu is about to become a married man.
He confirmed on Monday that his girlfriend accepted the proposal he made during the ultra-marathon.
The Pretoria man proposed to his girlfriend with a sign which read, “Prudence, will you marry me? Run 90km for you”, as he finished the marathon on Sunday.
Ndlovu, who works for a marketing company, said it was the 10th anniversary of his wife’s death on the same day.
“Prudence and I have been dating for four months. We met at church. Yesterday [Sunday] was the 10th anniversary of my wife’s death. I believed it was time for me to move on, therefore I proposed to Prudence,” he said.
