The once-fairy tale marriage between television actors Atandwa Kani and Fikile Mthwalo has come to an end, as revealed exclusively by a local publication. Mthwalo’s attorneys have informed Kani that she will be filing for divorce after their attempts to reconcile and salvage their struggling union were unsuccessful. This marks Kani’s second failed marriage in less than a decade.
Kani, a former Generations actor, married Mthwalo after a highly publicized divorce from his first wife, Thembisa Mdoda. The dissolution of Kani and Mthwalo’s marriage, which was registered in December 2015, comes as a disappointment to their loved ones who had hoped for a reconciliation and the possibility of starting a family together.
Sources close to the former couple expressed their sadness over Mthwalo’s decision to file for divorce, as they had believed the couple would find a way to resolve their issues and reunite. Following their separation, Mthwalo moved to Kyalami Hills while Kani resided in Meredale.
Despite their separation, the sources mentioned that Kani and Mthwalo continued to communicate in an attempt to salvage their relationship, although their efforts were in vain. Mthwalo reportedly decided to file for divorce after reflecting on their differences and realizing that their shared ambitions no longer aligned, resulting in the loss of the spark and affection they once had.
Another associate, who also spoke anonymously, confirmed that the couple was heading for a divorce.
