Meet Matsieng

Matsieng and Zukhara are the magnificent twin sons of King Mandla. Inextricable from birth, they have spent their lives together, the first generation born free in the Heartlands.

Zihra is their mother and Nebu their sister. Hugely handsome and curious of nature, Matsieng is a living expression of Orion, a Star Warrior in flesh and form, who’s sacred warriorship is intended to protect the Land and the Ladies. Both Cleopatra and Tswalu find him highly desirable and have shown their appreciation by inviting him to mate with each of them on different occasions.
