South Africa’s power couple Zizo Beda and Mayihlome Tsh wete are heading for the split, according to sources close to the pair.
Local publication News 365 has learnt that Zizo and Mayihlome’s five-year-old Union has collapsed and the two are heading for divorce.
Mayihlome has since moved out of their marital home in Fourways, north of Joburg, and is living in Midrand.
News of their separation was revealed by a relative who did not want to be named for fear of victimization.
Speaking to the local publication, the relative said the estranged couple drifted apart in 2017 after failing to resolve their differences. The relative said the two, who walked down the aisle in a fairytale wedding in 2015, have been trying in vain to resolve their squabbles.
“They tried to fix things because they wanted to raise their son together. This year, Zizo informed her family that she was done with the marriage and intends to file for divorce.
“When we asked her why, she just said she lost interest in the marriage and believes Mayihlome too has lost interest,” said the relative.
The relative also said Zizo and Mayihlome finally met this year with their legal teams.
“Though it was painful for them, they felt it was the correct decision to take. They came to accept that while they loved each other, they can’t continue as husband and wife. There are many people who love each other, but they are not together, because love alone is not enough,” said the relative.
The relative said the couple has agreed that Mayihlome should move out and occupy their property in Midrand while Zizo, the former Selimathunzi presenter, will remain in Fourways with their son.
“The Fourways house is registered in her name while the Midrand home is registered in his name. They have also agreed that they will each keep their cars,” said the relative.
The relative said they agreed that the child will live with Zizo.
