- Zitha started dating his now ex-girlfriend when they were in first year,
- He then dropped out to get a job and help her pay for her studies
- In 2017, she left Zitha for another man who allegedly murdered her in 2018
Zitha says he met his ex-girlfriend while they were both first years studying at the University of Johannesburg (UJ), seven years ago. They were both struggling to make ends meet financially, so Zitha decided to quit school to find a job.
Being the only one of the pair with an income, he helped her finish her studies. Zitha says he sacrificed his dreams to help her succeed, believing she would help him study when she had obtained her degree, Briefly.co.za learned.
Things went south and in 2017, she left him for another man. Zitha was heartbroken and says believed he helped make her life better. He says he loved her enough to let her go.
Zitha claims the man that his ex left him for killed her in 2018, and now his “sacrifices are down the grave.”
Zitha took to Twitter to lament about how the man the girl he sacrificed his dreams for chose to be with a murderer.
He says he is trying to forget her and everything he lost. Even though he eventually went back to school and is in his third year of studying through UNISA, the whole ordeal is a chapter in his life that he would like to put to rest.
Social media responded offering words of encouragement and advice for the young man, but also pointed out that she made a decision that ended badly for her, but she did not choose to be murdered.
Many users said that no one should sacrifice their own futures for another person and that you should always invest in yourself first.
Some users also suggested that maybe the man bullied her into leaving Zitha and that she may not have had a choice. Zitha says that people told him this at the time, but he didn't want to believe it.
Many users also shared their own personal tragedies about similar situations.
Anele Mda said that she met a lady whose husband had left her and her 2-month-old baby without even paying their rent. Anele says she helped the lady by loaning her R500k. She says the lady now refuses to pick up her calls and just ran away with the money.
Her advice to the young man is just to let what happened go.
