“She needs poking,” said Sipho Matu (55) of his 4-year-old vervet monkey noMeisie.
This jealous monkey made headlines in Daily Sun in April last year as she kept chasing women away from her owner’s house.
The monkey has been living with Sipho at his house in Holomisa kasi, KwaNobuhle township in Uitenhage, Eastern Cape since 2011.
Now Sipho is hoping that if he can find her a suitable lover she will calm down.
He said: “NoMeisie is a grown monkey and ready for love. So I’ve been looking for a male partner for her since January.
“The monkey to comfort noMeisie must be handsome and willing to stay in my yard.
“I often roam near the Swartkops bush in Port Elizabeth and Springs Resort in Uitenhage, where groups of monkeys roam.
“When I see a male monkey near noMeisie, I will lure him to my house to be with noMeisie. I will give them space to be together.”
Sipho’s neighbour, gogo Nomakula Ben (69), said: “I can’t go to the toilet without noMeisie giving me fierce looks.
“This monkey hates to see me. There will probably be less tension between myself and the monkey if she gets a partner.”
A neighbour who didn’t want to be named said the eggs noMeisie steals give her “feelings”.
“The monkey sneaks into our houses. Then in seconds it vanishes with eggs over our roofs,” she said.
