It was a dream come true for Ntsiki Sigege when family and friends filled a banquetting room at the Sunsquare Hotel to witness the launch of her memoir titled “A Broken Wing-Divorce”

The launch was replenished with another wing by the wisdom of great panelists, a brilliant programme director, beautiful musicians and high school students and dynamic orator, Vuyokazi Ngemntu, who kept the the audience in the lips of her mouth.

It is often said that when you are going through something as tough as a divorce, learning about a similar experience that speaks to your own situation can be a real game-changer.

‘A Broken Wing’, is a real-life story by inspirational author, Ntsiki Sigege. .

Written from a perspective that draws from her strict upbringing in a religious family, her spiritual grounding in the Christian faith, her position in a patriarchal society, her ambition to enter the institution of matrimony, her marital travails and the impact all this had on her children makes Ntsiki’s story a rich and compelling source of inspiration for women (and men) who are setting out on the marital journey.

It also aims to empower couples with understanding of the implications of divorce, and in that way help save a marriage or help women in particular to make smart decisions as they decide to take the drastic decision of leaving the comfort of their matrimonial homes.

The memoir is an authentic, unambiguous, tell-all, heart-breaking rendition of events that led to the breakdown in Ntsiki’s marriage and the decision to take the drastic step–divorce.

This is a story of a woman who has learnt that divorce takes courage, support and self-love. Ntsiki told City Vision that she will be criss-crossing the townships spreading the word that “divorce is not the end of the world”.

“Many young women are struggling with perceptions around this,” she said
