After less than a month on air, Mzansi Wethu’s new reality drama series Seng’khathele has set tongues wagging and fingers typing with their unbelievable guests and the tales they share on national television.
It all began when a trailer for the second episode went viral.
A man by the name of Celimpilo came to the show to dump his girlfriend who had previously slept with his best friend. His best friend ended up fathering the child that Mpilo has been raising as his own.

The aim of the show is to give people the platform to tell their significant others that they were no longer happy and wanted out of the relationship.
DStv said in a statement: “A Zulu expression for ‘I’m tired!’, Seng’Khathele brings in contact couples seeking closure and allows them to unpack all the reasons that have brought them to this point of wanting to end the relationship while doing so amicably. The reasons range from deceit to drug addiction, infidelity, financial problems, abuse, and even bedroom problems.”
