FORMER Our Perfect Wedding presenter,actress and businesswoman Kayise Ngqula has lost the love of her life.
SowetanLive reports that her husband Farai Sibanda died last night after sustaining injuries in a car accident.
Last year the SunTeam reported on Kayise’s pregnancy and engagement ceremony to Sibanda and her joy as a new mom to a baby boy.
According to SowetanLive,Kayise was travelling with her husband when the accident happened in the early hours of the morning last Sunday in Sandton.
Sibanda was in ICU for almost a week before he succumbed to his injuries.
Ngqula’s mother Fikiswa Gatya confirmed the news to Sowetan LIVE and said her daughter was currently in hospital recovering from the injuries.
The deceased was driving the car.
“She is stable. She is recovering from some fractures on her body. One can say she’s out of danger now,” Gatya said.
The couple got married last August before welcoming a baby boy.
“She is devastated as you can imagine. They have an eight-month-old baby. Even their union is fairly new. She’s really struggling,” Gatya said.
Gatya said Sibanda’s funeral arrangements were not yet finalised.
“The family is still in discussion. He is of Zimbabwean origin, so the family has been informed and some of them are already here. They arrived as soon as they were informed of the accident,” she explained.
Kayise,who is originally from East London,beat many hopefuls and gained a strong following when she won the OPW presenter search in 2017.
