It’s sad to see a couple as iconic as Zizo Beda and Mayihlome Tshwete call it quits, but after everything they’ve been through the last couple of years, at least there’s no drama.
We knew that it was only a matter of time before Zizo filed for divorce from her husband of five years, so no one was too surprised when the news finally broke. But while their relationship had been tumultuous and highly publicized in the past the breakup is going down with little fanfare.
A source said to Sunday World: “They tried to fix things because they wanted to raise their son together. This year, Zizo informed her family that she was done with the marriage and intends to file for divorce.
“When we asked her why, she just said she lost interest in the marriage and believes Mayihlome too has lost interest.”
The relative further went on to say that: “Though it was painful for them, they felt it was the correct decision to take. They came to accept that while they loved each other, they can’t continue as husband and wife. There are many people who love each other, but they are not together, because love alone is not enough.”
The relative went on to say that the couple reached an agreement that Mayihlome should move out and occupy their property in Midrand while Zizo, the former Selimathunzi presenter, will remain in Fourways with their son. “The Fourways house is registered in her name while the Midrand home is registered in his name. They have also agreed that they will each keep their cars,” said the relative.
Well, as we said this divorce is going very smoothly the custody of their child is already given to Zizo. Honestly, it seems like these two could both use some peace after the spectacle of the last year (plus living through a global pandemic). We hope that this split is the best for both of them and continue to wish them the best moving forward.
