Although the comments were turned off, peeps took to Twitter to share their thoughts on the Sikwane's separating.
"But Fresh has been embarrassing Thato for years and she has been an understanding wife, Fresh has been cheating with his PA, colleagues and university students etc."
"Relationships are extremely difficult to manage when one party consistently chooses to disrespect the marriage - this woman spoke at a youth conference at Rhema Bible church 15 years ago and I prayed for her to leave that marriage. I thank God for finally giving her the strength."
"It’s difficult when there’s one scandal after another, you try to understand then the data depletes mntakabawo. Sad."
"I'm honestly surprised it took them this long."
According to Sunday World, the former radio host has agreed to make this as amicable as possible. Fresh has given his ex-wife custody of their children as well as the home they once shared.
A friend of the couple told Sunday World that those close to them knew that something was up when they began sleeping in separate bedrooms. The source said:
"They are still living under the same roof and there was hope they would get their sparks back. But when she told him that she has consulted with her lawyers to file for divorce, Thato agreed to move out of their house in Northriding once the divorce is finalised."
