We have a new romance to kick off the new month after learning that Ayanda Thabethe is now involved with former Bafana Bafana captain, Bongani Khumalo.
Ayanda Thabethe is on cloud 9 at the moment after reports confirmed that the presenter and model has found love in the arms of Bongani Khumalo. From early indications it seems as if their relationship is already quite serious and there’s plenty of cause for optimism from onlookers.
Ayanda Thabethe is in love again
It’s been some time since we saw Ayanda Thabethe in a relationship. 2020 began on a sad note for the star after her private relationship with businessman Papi Rapolai came to a dramatic end. However, reports suggest that she has well and truly moved on from that brief romance and is in much happier spirits these days.
Over the weekend, Sunday World reported that the 34-year-old entrepreneur had found love again, this time with a much more familiar face: former SA men’s soccer captain, Bongani Khumalo. PSL fans are are no stranger to his exploits on the pitch, but it seems as if the Supersport United defender has scored off it too!
According to insiders who spoke to Sunday World, not only are the two smitten with one another, but Bongani is ready to settle down and start a serious relationship with his new flame.

Ayanda Thabethe’s dating history
Even though they both refused to comment on the rumours, the pair have been spotted numerous times in public, adding more fuel to the romantic flames. Despite that, Ayanda Thabethe’s longtime fans will be extremely happy to see her happy again following a number of failed romances in the past. Some of her high profile romances include:
Ayanda dated businessman Papi Rapolai (who was famously engaged to Lerato Kganyago once upon a time) but the two split after a few months together.
Ayanda and Zulu Mkhathini (formerly known as Dash) dated for over two years but that love affair came to an end in late 2018.
Ayanda and Andile Ncube were married for some time during the star’s early years in her career and although they eventually divorced, they hold each other in high esteem.
In fact, Ayanda is still in great terms with her exes as she said herself:
It’s so weird how well I get along with all my exes … I think I just really liked them as people until we complicated things by trying to date
