Zinhle Mabena’s husband, Robert Ngwenya has spoken up about his relationship with Zinhle.

The businessman released a statement, through his publicist Priscilla Malinga, claiming he has been physically abused by the Isibaya actress.

Zinhle made the headlines on Tuesday, 17 February, after being arrested for the attempted murder of Robert and murder of Robert’s bodyguard.

Zinhle appeared in the Pretoria Magistrates Court in Tshwane, on Tuesday, and the case was thrown out after the prosecutor said her arrest was unlawful.

Since then, Robert has spoken about his marriage with Zinhle.

“Consciously, I have taught my children, my family and even my wife that abuse in any form is wrong and it must never be tolerated irrespective of who dishes it. That behavior must be confronted immediately and everyone in the house must never be stopped from reporting such to authorities and law enforcement agencies. It is a principle I teach and live by,” he said in a statement.

“To lead by this example, when I, at some point in my own marriage felt abused by my own wife, not only did I seek a restraining order, but I even laid a complaint with the police because I couldn’t stand physical abuse,” he said.

“It therefore, cannot come as a shock or something out of the ordinary if my child or my own wife lay such a complaint against me or any other member of the family. These are the teachings of my family,” said Robert.

“Let it be noted that divorce is a very draining and emotionally exhausting process for anyone to go through," he said.
