Despite being seen together and fuelling rumours of an alleged romance, media personality Mohale Motaung and actor Wiseman Zitha have denied that they are in a relationship.
Motaung and Zitha set social media abuzz a few weeks ago when they posted a photo of themselves in a bathtub in a hotel room at the luxurious Palala Boutique Game Lodge and Spa in Limpopo. The pair have kept mum about reports of their alleged relationship.
However, Motaung tried to clear the air this week, saying that he was just good friends with the popular actor.
We are friends. Every time I post a picture of him, [people] say we are dating. Every time they see us together, they ask us questions [about our relationship], but he is my friend.
The reality TV star, who has ventured into the beauty business with a skincare brand called Elahom Cosmetics, said he was currently single.
“I am not dating [anyone]. I am tired. I will get back to dating at some point; not now,” he said.Motaung made headlines this year following the breakdown of his marriage to media personality Somizi Mhlongo.
The pair announced that they were divorcing after just two years of marriage.
Zitha, who was previously romantically linked to media personality Lasizwe Dambuza, said he had known Motaung for years.
“We are not dating, we are just good friends and we have been for a very long time. I have known him from when I got to Pretoria when we were still in varsity,” Zitha said.
The Giyani: Land of Blood lead actor, who has also starred in Rockville and Muvhango, said he had not addressed the rumours for years because people always assumed what they wanted to.
People don’t know that we know each other from way back because they see us now in public and assume that we are dating. Anyway, people will always assume what they want and there is nothing we can do.
