Ntandoyenkosi Kunene-Mthethwa and Khaya Mthethwa are getting a divorce after two year of marriage. The couple was married in December 2017.
But on Tuesday, Ntando took to Instagram to announce that they are separating.
“In the last few days my husband and I have had in-depth discussions about our marriage and our young family challenges. On Sunday we met my in-laws and informed them of our mutual decision for us to amicably file for divorce. I also informed my mother and the rest of my Kunene family who were disappointed with the divorce decision but appreciated the fact that I represented them well at the Mthethwas,” Ntando wrote.
The news came as a surprise to many.
On Twitter, fans expressed what seemed to be genuine sadness.

Ntando and Khaya Mthethwa are divorcing 😭. Kanti what's happening kwa marriage guys?
As much as I'm saddened by their divorce,I must applaud Ntando for calling it quits. I don't believe in forcing things, xa kungekho mnandi hamba nono, better things await you. It's OK to let go. pic.twitter.com/23coYGfuej

Marriage is one institutiom that is fought hard by the devil. A strong marriage leads to a strong family and a strong family leads to a stronger nation. The reverse is true, I hope Khaya Mthethwa and wife solve differences and that theu stay strong in their faith
