Actress Mona Monyane and actor husband Khulu Skejana have parted ways. The paired has been together for more than five years and share two kids.
Mona broke the news on her Twitter page and explained the pair couldn’t continue as a couple.
However, she took the chance to let everyone know to never stop believing in love and family.
“My husband and I have parted ways. I know this will come as a shock to many and I ask that you continue to believe in love and family,” she says.
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.
Without going into much details about their separation, Monyane said the break up was due to some “battles” they could not overcome as a couple.
“My husband and I have parted ways. I know this will come as a shock to many and I ask that you continue to believe in love and family. The battles we have met have been difficult to overcome together and I ask that you respect us by not sensationalising our separation,” she said.
Responding to those who were asking if she was okay after the separation, Monyane said she had survived worse situations.
“I’ve survived my 7-day-old baby dying in my arms. I’m really ok guys, this is nothing compared to that. Let’s carry on shall we?”
The couple lost their home in a fire that also destroyed her daughter Amani-Amaza’s ashes in October last year.
“I am in awe at the amount of loss I have experienced in my 29 years of life on this planet. Losing Amani’s ashes in this fire from hell has got to be the greatest lesson of letting go I could ever have had to experience.
“What a humbling life this is… one thing I know more than anything though is that God and my angels are protecting me and my family at all times and for that, I am forever grateful. Goodbye, Amani-Amaza,” she wrote on Instagram at the time.
