Melanie and Zwai Bala's split announcement leave Mzansi shook
Mzansi is still reeling after hearing the news that Melanie and Zwai Bala are divorcing.
The couple released a joint statement on Saturday explaining that there had been lots of speculation about their marriage and they wanted to tell the story themselves.
Still, the news has left many heartbroken. Just a few months ago, in an interview with Anele Mdoda, Zwai couldn't help but swoon about his wife and said they had been together for 18 years.

Sad to hear about the separation of Melanie and Zwai Bala. Marriage has lost value and meaning, couples are driven by selfish interests.— Benny Motjopye (@mmotjopye) October 15, 2017
