Sunday World reports that Moeletsi Mbeki and his wife Thandeka Gqubule, secretly divorced in 2018.

Thandeka is the economics editor at the SABC, while Moeletsi is the brother of the former South African President, Thabo Mbeki.

The two reportedly divorced after they failed to agree on many issues.


Mbeki confimed the divorce to the Sunday World and has also been telling anyone who cares to listen about the divorce.

Mbeki and Thandeka were married in 2016 and Gqubule changed her last name to Mbeki.

However, the marriage is said to haveĀ  faced many problems.

Mbeki is said to have insisted on a prenup agreement and Thandeka did not benefit financially from the divorce.

Thandeka, who moved out of the couple’s Dainfern home in late 2016, is said to have been hurt and pretended to friends that she was still together with Mbeki.

She is said to have continued wearing her ring and would talk to friends as if she was still married to Mbeki.
