Actor Wiseman Zitha hinted that he is dating actor and radio personality Mohale Motaung after he captioned pictures of their vacation “love of my life,” on 7 March.


The dating rumours between Mohale and Wiseman Zitha started while the 26-year-old was still married to media personality Somizi Mhlongo. Somhale’s marriage had been on the rocks for months before the pair announced their divorce in August 2021. 

Fans were concerned when Somizi spent his birthday without Mohale but with his “bestie” Vusi Nova. Months went on and the pair’s last post together dated back to Christmas Day. So, fans knew there was trouble in paradise. 

In August 2021, leaked audio clips revealed that Mohale accused Somizi of physical and psychological abuse. The pair then confirmed their divorce but in July, Mohale spent his 26th birthday with Wiseman. The pair appeared to have been enjoying a safari together. Take a look…

The pair were seen posing in similar pictures at Palala Boutique Game Lodge & Spa in November 2021, further fueling romance rumours.

Mohale previously denied that they were dating. 

“We are friends, every time I post a picture of him, [people] say we are dating. Every time they see us together, they ask us questions [about our relationship], but he is my friend,” said Mohale to City Press.

“I am not dating [anyone], I am tired, I will get back to dating at some point; not now,” he continued. 

Wiseman also cleared the air on their relationship.

“We are not dating, we are just good friends and we have been for a very long time. I have known him from when I got to Pretoria when we were still in varsity,” said Wiseman to the publication.

“People don’t know that we know each other from way back because they see us now in public and assume that we are dating. Anyway, people will always assume what they want and there is nothing we can do,” he continued.

However, Wiseman called Mohale the “love of his life” in an Instagram post on 7 March. The pair appear to be at Bundox Safari Lodge in Limpopo. Take a look…
