I had very minimal contact with the outside world, and my mental health started falling apart
Zimbabwean businessman Kudzai Mushonga has opened up on his ‘relationship from hell’ with South African actress Khanyi Mbau.
The Zimbabwean businessman said the ‘toxic relationship’ with one of Mzansi’s finest almost destroyed his life.
Kudzai spoke to Maphephandaba about the terrible impact the relationship had on his mental health. His life got wrapped around Khanyi so much that he hardly had contact with the outside world.
“I found myself in a situation where my life would stop once I dropped my partner at the airport. I had friends, brothers and sisters that checked on me often. I gave them all up. In pursuit of love. I feared disrespecting my partner and never wanted her to worry or raise any suspicions.
“I had very minimal contact with the outside world, and my mental health started falling apart. Each time I tried to step out, it disrupted the peace in my relationship, so I chose to stay home. I only went out when she was home, and that was maybe after 4 months.
“I started dying a slow, painful death inside me, and each time I shared how I felt, the response was (your feelings are valid) and dismissed. My situation got so intense that at some point, I thought of sharing all the money I had amongst my family and her and just die.”
Mbau has not responded Kudzi’s allegations or given her side of the story.
During an interview with Maphephandaba, Kudzi said he is now seeing someone else from the UAE, ‘a famous young businesswoman who is an Arab,’ pictured here.
