Breaking up is never easy, that's why some people find it easier to do over the phone. It might be easier for the one breaking up, but the person on the receiving end is left with little to no closure and lots of heartache and humiliation.
Getting dumped over the phone is embarrassing and painful, but receiving news of divorce over a chat platform like WhatsApp? That's something most of us won't wish on our worst enemies.
That's exactly what happened to Skeem Saam actor and gospel singer, Mphoza Mashabela. His wife dumped him on WhatsApp and moved out of their home in Mokopane, Limpopo.
Mphoza had a small role in popular soapie Skeem Saam. He played the role of Setati, a client of motor mechanic Big Boy Mabitsela.
The Sowetan reported that Mphoza's wife, Tony, claimed he cheated on her with more than 30 'concubines'. She said she just couldn't take it anymore.
Furthermore, the disgruntled woman, who is a teacher, accused Mphoza of being a noncontributing husband.
He is unemployed, but every time I return home from school I must change faulty light bulbs and also do the garden. What kind of a man is that? He even bad-mouths me in public.
Briefly.co.za gathered that the two are also getting ready to go to war over their estate.
The actor confirmed that he was dumped over the phone.
I have never thought one day I would be a victim of domestic violence and be helpless. It's so painful and hurtful that you arrive at home as a man and be disrespected by your wife. She told me that she no longer loves me but I'm stuck in one place because since we separated she has not filed for divorce to complete the choice she made to live a new life without me.
Mphoza didn't want to say more than that, and did the "Don't talk to me, talk to my lawyer" routine.
Adv Jerry Koma, Mphoza's lawyer, stated that they will give Tony until the end of the year to file divorce papers before they will do so themselves.
