During the interview, Sonia Mbele shared her emotional journey of being married to Leslie Sedibe, a former executive of the South African Football Association (SAFA) and an attorney.
“While I was there [in her marriage] and waking up to the dawn of who are you, who did I marry, and living with that person every day and realizing this is a MFer,” she said.
Mbele expressed her hope and prayers that her children, above all, would see her ex-husband for the person she knew him to be. She chose to remain silent, believing that one day her children would realize the truth about their father.
