The publication claims to have received intel from a close relative of the couple who said their legal teams have met to allegedly draw up divorce papers. Apparently problems started to arise in 2017 between the couple and have made efforts to work things out.

In 2018, it was reported that Mayihlome moved out from their matrimonial home, and according to recent reports that is still the case. The source related to the couple alleges that Zizo broke the news to her family that she wants to divorce Mayihlome after trying to make things work for their child.

“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 source sang like a canary to the publication. 

The relative added that there is no bad blood between the estranged couple and that they still love each other, “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 pair met in Durban during the birthday celebration of politician Malusi Gigaba. At the time Zizo was working for Selimathunzi and covered the event whilst Mayihlome was part of the organizing committee.

Zizo explained their encounter to Rorisang on Touch Central at the time and said this about her estranged husband, "My husband is the best guy in the world for me, we met each other, went on a date literally the next day and we've been together ever since for six years. It was just one of those connections that were instantaneous I can't explain it." 

They got hitched on December 11, 2015 at the Gonubie Manor venue in East London and have a son together named Vukile Tshwete who was born in 2016.
