Mona didn’t go into details of what had led to the pair, who were viewed as one of SA’s inspirational couples, to go their separate ways.

She does mention that they’ve been faced with troubles that overwhelmed them as a couple.

“The battles we have met have been difficult to overcome together and I ask that you respect us by not sensationalizing our separation,” she concluded in a short note.

The duo had to endure losing their baby just seven days after she was born. Following that Mona was criticised for her getting pregnant months after losing her baby.

In previous interviews she had acknowledged Khulu’s support. She said if it were not for her husband, things would have been tougher for her after losing the baby.

Another tragedy was recently when they both watched their house burn to ashes.
