Doctor Love is straight… again

Celebrity doc Dr Love is “back on the straight and narrow”. He says he is “done with men”

and has gone back to his ex-wife and the mother of his two children, Nomxolisi Mji.

Dr Love, real name Mveleli Gqwede, says he’s also a born again Christian now. “God has helped me to go back to being straight.

In fact I will sue any boy who comes close to me,” he says in his usual nonchalant manner. “I am not into boys anymore and I want people to respect that.”

“We have gone through counselling and we are happy,” he says.

Back in the ’80s Dr Love and Nomxolisi were regulars on the social scene, but separated when he started showing an interest in men. He became well known in the 1990s after openly campaigning for the rights of gay people.

Dr Love recently hosted On Call with Dr Love on Soweto TV but says he is currently pursuing other avenues at Bara TV, a soon-to-be-launched TV station. Nomxolisi, who is on a trip to London, could not be reached for comment.
