Lerato Kganyago’s shocking split from her husband of two months has the Twitterverse talking

The radio personality announced on Thursday that she was parting ways with wealthy businessman Thami Ndlela.

“It is with a heavy heart that we announce that Thami and I have decided to go our separate ways. We have come to realise that our different priorities and work loads have not afforded us the time to invest in our relationship.

“I will continue to care deeply for Thami and look forward to growing our friendship. We trust that our privacy will be respected during this difficult time,” she wrote on Instagram. 

Lerato also warned her followers about a fake Twitter profile that was pretending to be her soon-to-be ex-husband and threatening to share juicy details about their relationship.

One tweep applauded Lerato for normalising leaving a toxic relationships.

Some Twitter users claimed that Lerato and Thami were married in community of property and she would lose some of her assets. But the star poured cold water on the speculations

“G. Morning. Ain’t nobody touching ANYTHING I OWN that’s FOR SURE! Easy with the speculation, wish you a day full of positivity.”

She also clapped back at a few Twitter users who criticised her for posting her split news on social media.

“U didn’t post when you where getting married, it’s nt necessarily to tell us when u break-up . I mean,” one Twitter user wrote.

Lerato replied: “Akere y’all took my then marriage to the papers every weekend, when I kept silent about it, so this was the perfect platform to address you and get you all of my back! Have a nice day.”
