Speaking to TimesLIVE after the interview aired, Mohale opened up about the hardships he’s faced since the revelations.
“The leaked interview was very difficult for me — that someone would take such confidential information and leak or release it without my consent.”
Mohale concedes that more privacy in his personal life and his relationship with Somizi might have been beneficial, but he says he doesn’t regret how things happened as he believes everything happens for a reason.
The events that followed affected his mental health, but the 28-year-old says he received a lot of support from his family and friends. He also decided to seek help in going for therapy, which he says helped him deal with everything.
“I’ve just taken some time to understand what I’m going through. I really believe in remembering what I want to do and what I want to achieve, remembering who I am. That’s really how I’ve managed to deal with the trauma,” he says.
