- Simphiwe Ngema has a lot to celebrate
- The actress has come incredibly far since losing her husband, Dumi Masilela, a few years ago
- Simphiwe recently bought her own house and posted a powerful message along with the registration e-mail
Simphiwe Ngema is over the moon to finally have purchased her first home.
The actress celebrated with her fans by posting a congratulatory e-mail from one of her facilitators.
This moment is especially precious for Simphiwe because she was left with nothing when her fellow actor husband, Dumi Masilela, was killed in a botched hijacking in 2017.
In a powerful and touching caption, Simphiwe detailed how hard picking herself up has been.
She wrote, "Three years ago I became a 27-year-old widow. My husband passed away two months after our wedding (with no life insurance) and I was left with nothing. I didn't have a job and I was left with a car that he was murdered in. My family was all I had.
I was fortunate that I had a family that could take care of me (most widows don't). Three months later, I got a job and three months after that, my aunt died in my arms and it felt like things were getting worse.
Simphiwe detailed how hard it was to get back on her feet and that it was a long process.
But the star's proud of the progress she's made and encouraged other women to get out there and do it for themselves.
