Speaking to Tshisa LIVE, Buthelezi revealed that she and her girlfriend had been in a relationship for over six months and she was madly in love.

"Yes, I am dating that lady. Her name is Zandile. It's been over six months. I've never shared anything about my love life because I'm a very private person. And I know most people think that me dating a girl has been a secret but it's not a secret. I just haven't been flaunting it."

Buthelezi went on to add that she had struggled to reclaim her sexuality after she dated a man and was scared of the public opinion. Now that she is finally living fearlessly, Buthelezi wants to encourage and inspire other women in her position to live freely.
