- When a spouse cheats on their partner, it normally heralds in the end of their marriage
- However, some people are strong enough to forgive and forget, and take back their cheating other halves
- Briefly takes a look at 5 celebs who did just that
For most people, infidelity means the end of a relationship. However, there are those who can look past this and move forward.
Even some of Mzansi's celebs have managed to forgive and forget about the misbehaviour of their spouses and stick with them.
Briefly.co.za takes a look at 5 of these celebs, thanks to information learnt from ZAlebs.
South Africa's former Minister of Home Affairs, Malusi Gigaba, strayed from his marriage back in 2015.
He had an affair with socialite and Instagram model, Buhle Mkhize, but Norma decided to look past his mistake.
She told You magazine:
"I told myself I’m not sinking with this thing; I’m going to rise above it... I love him very much and I’m not bitter."
Another politician to be caught cheating was Minister of Transport, Fikile Mbalula. He admitted to secretly seeing a model in her twenties and publicly apologised for his indiscretion.
The Citizen reported Fikile bought his wife a diamond to say sorry - it clearly worked.
Kaizer Chiefs midfielder/striker, Bernard Parker, is one of many sportsmen who gave in to temptation. He apparently impregnated a Wits University student back in 2014.
However, his wife Wendy ignored the rumours and now the couple is still happy together.
In this case, it was the wife who was unfaithful. Proverb revealed in 2015 that his wife of (then) 10 years, Onalerona, had an affair.
The couple makes our list because they tried to make things work, but in 2016 they decided to put an end to their marriage. Whether it was Onalerona's cheating that ended things for good isn't clear.
Businessman Theunis Crous made quite a number of headlines when he cheated on Primrose with celeb Khanyi Mbau.
However, after their affair was over, Primrose gave him a second chance. Perhaps Theunis learnt his lesson, as the couple seems to be happy nowadays.
