Inside the ugly Mbuli divorce

After months of speculation the estranged husband and wife open up about their divorce.

They were the perfect couple and she was the envy of many girls and the dream woman of many men. Then media reports in 2008 hinted at cracks in their marriage which the couple denied at the time.

There’s been a media frenzy about the pending divorce of high-profile socialite and fashionista Uyanda Mbuli (34). Following many requests, Uyanda finally agrees to meet with DRUM at her new home in upmarket Bryanston.

As we come up the driveway we notice two cars parked in the garage – her much talked- about white Porsche Cayman and next to it a SAAB convertible with her personalised plates.

Uyanda welcomes us as she comes down the spiral metallic staircase, donning her signature gigantic red-bottomed heels and tight mini dress.

There is no trace of sleepless nights – she oozes style. Lately it hasn’t been Uyanda’s on-point dress sense that has kept her in the spotlight but rather her personal life.

“It is so unfortunate that I now find myself reading about my life in the media, but God will see me and my son through this challenging time.”

Uyanda, born Uyanda Sibiya, says the last three weeks have been painful, but she has been strong for her son and has found strength in God.

“Lately I find my journey towards being a single mother dramatised without due respect to my son and my family,” says Uyanda.
