Bokang Montjane-Tshabalala has had to adjust to not having her hubby here all the time, and it has not been easy. Long-distance relationships are trying and it requires a different kind of love to conquer it.
Siphiwe Tshabalala, Bokang Montjane-Tshabalala’s husband, left South Africa a few weeks back to follow his dream of playing soccer internationally. The 34-year-old made his European debut for the Turkish side on the 3 September.
His international move came with a price. Siphiwe had to leave his wife and son in South Africa making it a very difficult thing to do, reported ZAlebs.
Briefly.co.za learnt that things are working out well though. His wife, Bokang Montjane-Tshabalala, is managing to stay in contacted even though they are not living on the same continent.
