It’s a bust


Sunday World - - Hot News - NGWAKO MALATJI

MZANSI’S pop­u­lar fash­ion icon and Di­a­mond Face Cou­ture de­signer Uyanda Mbuli is head­ing for a bit­ter sepa­ra­tion from her hus­band of 10 years, Sisa Mbuli. They had also in­tended to go their sep­a­rate ways years ago, but man­aged to rekin­dle their love. But our sources in­sist that this time it’s a slam dunk be­cause their re­la­tion­ship has now bro­ken down ir­repara­bly.

“It’s over be­tween Uyanda and her man. The two have gone their sep­a­rate ways for good,” says Uyanda ’ s close friend who spoke to us on con­di­tion of anonymity.

The pal says last month Sisa bun­dled Uyanda out of their mat­ri­mo­nial pad in the ritzy sub­urb of Kyalami in Jozi.

And he wants to con­fis­cate the lux­ury Porsche he bought her when ev­ery­thing was still hunky-dory.

We can also re­veal that the one-time “It” cou­ple is head­ing for a le­gal bat­tle over alimony, as well as an ac­ri­mo­nious tus­sle over the cus­tody of their son, whom Uyanda pa­raded in a weekly mag­a­zine last month.

Our deep throat be­lieves this was a des­per­ate move by the self-pro­claimed shrink­ing vi­o­let to keep the me­dia out of the loop about their sepa­ra­tion.

It is also al­leged that Sisa has opened a case of kid­nap­ping against

‘ The two have gone their sep­a­rate ways for good ’

Uyanda for tak­ing their child with her with­out his con­sent.

The friend says Sisa is in turn fac­ing charges of vi­o­lat­ing a pro­tec­tion or­der that Uyanda got against him.

Sun­day World was un­able to in­de­pen­dently ver­ify these al­le­ga­tions.

The friend, who is privy to Uyanda’s pri­vate life, says Sisa is gatvol with Uyanda be­cause she was hen­peck­ing him and ne­glect­ing her con­ju­gal du­ties.

The buddy also al­leges that Sisa was vexed by Uyanda’s pen­chant for hop­ping from one party to an­other with “a bunch of gay drifters and free­loaders”. “Sisa com­plained that this was af­fect­ing their son as she wasn’t giv­ing him the moth­erly care other chil­dren are get­ting, ” says the friend.

The straw that broke the camel’s back was when Uyanda went to Dur­ban in De­cem­ber and par­tied up a storm at a shindig or­gan­ised by an un­known im­pre­sario while Sisa and their son were hol­i­day­ing in Egypt.

“This drove him crazy, he couldn’t take it” says our mole.

The friend says Sisa also be­moaned the fact that Uyanda did not tell him about an in­ci­dent in which a kid drowned in the swim­ming pool of one of her celebrity friends’ houses.

He also rep­ri­manded her for in­sult­ing, with­out provo­ca­tion, other celebri­ties on so­cial net­works Face­book and Twit­ter.

Sisa was em­bar­rassed be­cause her tiff with these celebs, Bo­nang Matheba in­cluded, made him a tar­get of gos­sip among his busi­ness as­so­ciates.

“He now wants his car back but she is re­fus­ing to give it to him, say­ing it was bought in her name,” says the friend.

The tell­tale also says Uyanda claims Sisa was a Frankestein mon­ster who abused her for no ap­par­ent rea­son.

“She claims he started abus­ing her in 2004 and that it be­came worse a few months be­fore they went their sep­a­rate ways.

“But Sisa doesn’t strike me as that kind of a per­son,” says the friend.

Sisa con­firms that the lig­a­ture that’s been hold­ing them to­gether has snapped.

In a state­ment sent to Sun­day World via e-mail, Sisa writes: “Dear Sir 1. I wish to ad­vise as fol­lows: 1.1. In De­cem­ber 2008 Ms Uyanda Mbuli widely com­mu­ni­cated, through sev­eral public medi­ums, in­clud­ing Sun­day World, her in­tent to in­sti­tute di­vorce pro­ceed­ings.

1.2. In Novem­ber 2011 we en­tered into an agree­ment to con­clude same.

Yours sin­cerely.” malatjin@sun­day­ SMS S2 and your com­ments to 32467. SMSES are R1 each.
