It has been a few months since Siphiwe Tshabalala left Mzansi to pursue his international soccer dream. The former Kaizer Chiefs and Bafana Bafana player made Mzansi proud after it was announced that he’d be playing football in Turkey.
The move meant leaving his wife and son behind, which was probably not an easy thing to do. However, it looks like the sports star and his wife Bokang Montjane-Tshabalala are doing their best to stay connected while living on different continents.
In an interview on Metro FM’s Fresh Breakfast on Thursday morning, the former Miss South Africa was asked about making a long distance relationship work. She said: “I think the first thing is definitely supporting each other in terms of your dreams. If you dream, I dream Siphiwe’s dreams with him, so this [move] is part of my dream as well.”
She said it’s also about communication. “I mean I’m with this man every month since he left. So far, I was with him two weeks ago, I was with him again this weekend.” She added that you need to make an effort.
Bokang also said on the radio show: “It’s about sacrifice, it’s about compromise.”
This weekend, Siphiwe and Bokang will be launching their SB Kids clothing line at Jet Stores nationwide.
