Sports Presenter Walter Mokoena’s marriage to his 2nd wife, former president Jacob Zuma’s daughter Nosizwe Vuso is said to have fallen apart. The couple have been married for 6 years, and they have children together.
According to Sunday World , the sports presenter decided to end his marriage with Nosizwe Vuso, allegedly because she was depressed and moody. A source shared with the publication that there was trouble in the marriage since last year May.
“He often complained that their marriage was suffering as a result of Nosizwe’s depression and mood changes. After several family meetings convened with the elders to try and save their marriage, Walter decided to leave their home.”
“He told her he no longer wanted to continue with the marriage under those circumstances and left her.”
The source also said Mokoena, moved out of their home in Morningside, Sandton and now lives in Bedfordview, Ekurhuleni.
Walter Mokoena is the ex husband of Pearl Thusi, and they share a beautiful daughter together. He had this to say about his marriage failing according to Sunday World:
“It’s a fact and fact of life, it is what it is. It’s like anything that disappoints and hurts. You can’t sit there and wallow in self-pity and lament. Even the great Madiba [the late president Nelson Mandela] had to go through these kinds of things. Successes and failures are a part of life,” he said.
The couple tried to save their marriage by getting their families involved.
“Yes, despite all the efforts, we fell short. We drifted apart; we grew apart. But we have children together, and we are good partners to raise our children, she is a great mother, she was a great wife, and will be a great partner to raise our children, but I cannot say we are, or we will be friends.”
“Maybe I’m the problem. Maybe I’m not good at this thing. I tried my best on two occasions and I failed. I don’t think I’m good at this thing. Maybe the problem is with me. I must also look at myself. As much as the success of this marriage would have had my fingerprints on it, its failure should also have my fingerprints on it.”
