Sports presenter, Mpho Letsholenyane (former Maboi) has been living with a heavy heart. She took to social media to air her pain and guilt of losing her unborn child. She says she felt responsible for not giving her unborn baby life. This has been haunting her for some time now.

The broadcaster has been wearing a ring as a reminder of that sad incident for the past ten years. She took a decision of wearing a ring on her right hand to commemorate the loss of her unborn child.  However, she recently took a decision to retire the ring so that she can leave the guilt and pain in the past. “Today I retire this ring. I am finally setting myself free from the pain and the guilt of not being able to carry you to the term, of not being able to give you life, even though I will still remember to never forget,” she wrote.

Mpho is now a mother of a four year old boy named Thato and she remains grateful to God for entrusting her with his life. In an interview with Move! earlier this year she said motherhood has taught her valuable lessons. It’s all thanks to her son she has learnt to be patient, “I have never been very patient before but he has taught me to improve on that,” she says.

Mpho Letsholenyane known for her passion for sports broadcasting is married to the soccer star Reneilwe Letsholenyane. The two celebrated their traditional wedding earlier this year, after secretly getting married in 2017. They have been inseparable since then.
