She took the time to heal. After all, she's been through the worst. 

But she's now let love in and is engaged. 

Actress Mona Monyane is getting ready to walk down the aisle again. She had a lot of healing to do. In 2016, she lost her seven-day-old daughter and a few years later she lost her home to a fire. Then she went through a divorce. 

In her last interview with Drum she opened up about being sexually abused as a child and losing her daughter.

“I had to address the fact that my father was absent while growing up. I needed to deal with my issues of sexual abuse, losing my daughter, and many other issues that were blocking me from healing.

"Once I faced those issues head-on, I was able to let go and let God. Even the burning down of my house was a sign that I needed to start over, and I did.”

She recently shared that she is engaged after trusting God with her healing and journey.

"Abuthi a re "will you be my wifey", Nna ka re "yes I'll be your wifey".

“Chomi, I took a few years shem, to unpack. To unravel, to allow myself to truly feel pain. I took a few years to prioritize not only healing but also loving myself. It cost me a lot of friends, time, money, family. It cost me making very scary choices and decisions that considered no one else's opinion but my own.

“The darkness was real,” she continued.

“I deserved what my heart desired and even if I couldn't see it in my pain. It was definitely waiting for me in my joy. When I wept and prayed for God to bring me a man who would love me the way I knew I wanted and deserved to be loved, I couldn't have anticipated how that manifestation would unfold."
