A few weeks after announcing her separation from her husband, Masechaba Ndlovu has revealed that a divorce is not on the cards.
In a post shared on Instagram, she wrote, in part: “I’ve taken the very painful decision of separating from my husband, the love of my life, the man of my dreams. My ride or die. Sometimes in life, the best thing you can do is the hardest thing you’ve ever done. We will always remain friends and fantastic parents to our children – and we will always love and care for each other.”
She also added: “Often we lie to ourselves because we try to bend, to water it down; to make it logical; to edit our souls to make it work. The truth is your soul knows what it needs to heal itself, the challenge is to silence the mind. The truth may hurt for a little while, but a lie will hurt forever.”
The radio and TV host was recently on SABC 3’s Real Talk, where she spoke about her life, career and marriage. Speaking about her separation, she explained: “I’m literally just taking it one day at a time, Aza, you know.”
She said marriage is a difficult institution: “And sometimes you go in there, you and your partner, really undermining what it really takes to have a successful marriage. And not only from a sort of roles perspective but understanding yourself and what it is to be a good wife, what it is to be a good husband, and I don’t wanna lie to you; we have separated but divorce is not on the cards.”
The Metro FM personality added: “Sometimes you have to take five steps back to take five steps forward. My husband is an incredible man. I love him, and I know that he loves me.”
She revealed that they’re going for counselling. “And we are learning each other again and it’s a painful process.”
