Real Housewives of Durban (RHOD) star Silindile “Slee” Ndlovu has opened up again about her relationship with her ex-fiance, Sandile Zungu.

Asked if her break up from Zungu was the most painful experience she’s gone through, Slee answered “no, it’s not”. She said she’s been through worse and even though she was hurt when their engagement abruptly ended, she says she was mostly dissapointed.

“To be honest, I’ve never hated this specific person. I have forgiven… When I was going through it [the break up] I blocked certain individuals because I did not want to see what was happening in that space. I needed my own time to heal. I needed to disappear. But when I reappeared, I knew that I was ready. I had healed. I was ready to move on and tell my story and speak about it because I knew that I would be asked about it.

“So, I have forgiven and I have accepted the apology which I’ve never received, which is okay. Sometimes you don’t need closure,” she said.

Slee further said that her ex was a great part of her life and there are things she would not have achieved if it wasn’t for him.

According to the mom-of-two, her relationship with the wealthy businessman was not a secret as she attended every AmaZulu event, ran the club house and his late wife’s foundation; The Zunguness Foundation.

“I ran the Zunguness Foundation and attended every parents’ meeting for his kids. I’d take care of his kids in his absence. When his wife died, I became his shoulder to cry on. I followed all his instructions without questioning him. We did baecations together,” she said in an inter in January.

Narrating their break-up, Slee said she and her ex-fiance had a minor argument that she assumed they would fix.

Slee explained that Zungu had promised to pay lobolo for her after a big project she was working on was complete. However, she says he never kept his promise.

“Instead, he dumped me and married another woman,” said Slee.

“We had a minor argument and he said he doesn’t trust me anymore. He stormed out of our home but I didn’t take it seriously. I actually laughed because the fight wasn’t even serious. I waited for him to come back but he didn’t.”

“Four months after the argument, he went behind my back and married another woman. I saw their pictures in the newspapers. I was shocked and hurt by the whole thing. That’s when I decided to walk away. I still don’t know why he dumped me. I might have triggered something in him but whatever it is did not give him the right to treat me like that.

“Now that the relationship has ended, I can see that I was never his ideal woman. I think he was still mourning his late wife and I helped him to heal,” she said.

The businessman has never addressed the claims.
