SOMIZI AND MOHALE
In August this year, many people were blown away after recordings of Mohale accusing his estranged husband of physical and mental abuse were leaked.
As a result of the accusations, Somizi was suspended from a number of his roles as a media personality. Mohale surprisingly became a whole lot more popular after the story went viral.
Things around the couple have since quieted down but many are waiting to see whether Mohale will walk away from the marriage a lot richer.
