- Local television and radio personality Criselda Kananda has revealed that she and her husband, Siyolo Dudumashe, have called it quits
- She didn't go into details but feels ready to move on with her life
- This comes after Criselda laid a charge of assault against Siyolo before later withdrawing it
Criselda Kananda, beloved and admired TV and radio personality, is moving on from a failed marriage to Siyolo Dudumashe.
She confirmed the news to Daily Sun but did not want to go into details on why they are getting a divorce:
"I wouldn't like to talk much about what's happening with my relationship but people should know that I'm in the process of divorce."
Criselda and Siyolo have been married for five years and had a lavish and beautiful wedding.
The divorce comes after Criselda told her fans on social media last year about the abuse she had been suffering at her husband's hands.
She opened a case of assault, but Briefly.co.za reported that she eventually withdrew the case, much to the disappointment of her followers.
After dropping the charges against Siyolo, Criselda said he had to adhere to certain conditions, though these were never revealed.
Criselda has been going through a difficult time - she nearly lost her life due to a chronic disease last year.
As someone who is open about her HIV status, she also opened up about her brush with death, but did not say what illness had almost taken her life.
Criselda expressed how grateful she is that she found out what was wrong and that she is getting the medical care that she needs. Coming that close to death can change a person’s entire life.
