Ayanda Thabethe talks about her “amicable” divorce from ex hubby

Ayanda Thabethe

Ayanda Thabethe is in the prime of her career right now. It seems like everything she touches turns to gold and we are immensley happy for her. Things weren’t always this easy, however.

The presenter had to navigate a tricky, but public breakup from ex-husband, Andile Ncube. According to Ayanda, it was amicable but emotionally draining. She explains why she split from Andile after just two years of marriage: “I learnt a lot‚ but one thing that stands out is the importance of knowing oneself.

If you know yourself‚ you know what deserves your time and effort. As much as I didn’t have a bad experience‚ I now know where to direct my efforts‚ time and energy. I feel at that time‚ my energy was misdirected‚” She explains the shock that most people felt: “It was a shock to most people.

We had been married for two years. It was what a lot of people thought was ‘amazing‚ dream marriage this is what I want’. It was what people thought it was Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston. It was a shock when out of the blue [we split]‚” Luckily, life is about the choices you make and if you’re never happy with a certain choice, you can always make a change. Ayanda chose happiness, and she’s a better person for it.
