Sunday World reveals that the renowned sports personality Walter Mokoena’s six-year marriage to Nosizwe Vuso ended after his first marriage to Pearl Thusi also ended years ago.   

A source close to the couple revealed to the publication that Vuso, who’s the daughter of former president Jacob Zuma was often moody and depressed.   

“He often complained that their marriage was suffering as a result of Nosizwe’s depression and mood changes. After several family meetings convened with the elders to try and save their marriage, Walter decided to leave their home.”  

“He told her he no longer wanted to continue with the marriage under those circumstances and left her.”  

The source also said Mokoena, the former SABC sports presenter has moved out of their matrimonial pad in Morningside, Johannesburg, and now lives in Bedfordview, Ekurhuleni.  

It is alleged Mokoena and Vuso tied the knot in 2014, but their marriage fell apart when Mokoena started complaining about his wife being depressed and having constant mood swings.

Walter Mokoena, who (according to Sunday World) was previously married to media personality and actress Pearl Thusi also confirmed his split.  

“It’s a fact and fact of life, it is what it is. It’s like anything that disappoints and hurts. You can’t sit there and wallow in self-pity and lament. Even the great Madiba [the late president Nelson Mandela] had to go through these kinds of things. Successes and failures are a part of life,” he said.  

The sports presenter also said they tried to save their marriage through a series of family meetings which proved fruitless.   

“Yes, despite all the efforts, we fell short. We drifted apart; we grew apart. But we have children together, and we are good partners to raise our children, she is a great mother, she was a great wife, and will be a great partner to raise our children, but I cannot say we are, or we will be friends.”  

Mokoena, who was formerly married to TV personality Pearl Thusi was asked if he would ever get married again…  

“Maybe I’m the problem. Maybe I’m not good at this thing. I tried my best on two occasions and I failed. I don’t think I’m good at this thing. Maybe the problem is with me. I must also look at myself. As much as the success of this marriage would have had my fingerprints on it, its failure should also have my fingerprints on it.”  

Vuso had not responded to The South African questions at the time of going to print.
