These incidents occurred on three separate occasions in the past three years.

Ma-khene has also slept with a married Nigerian drug merchant behind Keswa’s back in exchange for narcotics.

Keswa also went to town in a letter she wrote to Makhene’s family in February explaining her decision to end the couple’s marriage.

In the letter, which the publication has seen, she wrote that she decided to end their union because Makhene exchanged low bodily blows with a Nigerian drug dealer in exchange for drugs.

Keswa said the former Generations: The Legacy thespian also cheated on her with a lesbian.

“Letoya Makhene cheated on me on two occasions with a Nigerian man, sleeping with him in exchange for drugs.

“Two weeks after Letoya cheated with the married man, I told her to leave my house, and she came to your home in Tladi (Soweto), only for her to once again cheat with a lesbian woman from your area.”

Keswa also revealed how Makhene attacked her on three different occasions.

“I have been physically assaulted by Letoya on three occasions, even burning me with hot water in the process, and the only family member I consulted with was her father, Blondie Makhene, who asked for forgiveness on her behalf, and at the time, I stupidly forgave her and did not take any legal steps outside of filing reports with the law.

“Letoya has destroyed both the homes that we’ve lived in. Breaking windows and burning curtains at my grandmother’s home and breaking furniture at our home”.

Keswa said that after these incidents, they consulted with a medical professional who recommended that Makhene go to a mental institution after declaring that she was an alcoholic but she refused.

“Letoya Makhene [is] refusing to go to a mental institution after a qualified medical practitioner instructed her to go to a mental institution to seek professional help…”

Keswa also lamented the financial doldrums she found herself in after Makhene’s family allegedly lied to her, saying that the actress was a qualified sangoma.


“When I married Letoya, the family made me pay lobola for Letoya, her mother, her children, and her dlozis (ancestors), only to find out [later] that Letoya has not completed her initiation, and this has compromised me financially as I have been subjected to numerous encounters in paying for her to -finish her initiation. Letoya and the family were not truthful to my family,” she wrote, adding that this left her in a financial mess. Keswa said that after much introspection, she has decided to call it quits.

“After much deliberation with my family, I took the decision that the differences are way too much (emotionally, financially, and physically draining and abusive). The differences are irreconcilable; therefore, I am dissolving the marriage.

Makhene replied to Keswa’s letter on April 9 stating that she too has accepted that their matrimony has disintegrated and advocated for its dissolution.

“Dumelamg baholo ba ha Pulumo” Makhene wrote in a letter.

“It is with great sadness that I write this letter. My marriage to your daughter, my wife Lebohang Mahali Pulumo, has come to an end due to irreconcilable differences, and I think it’s for the best that she and I do not try to fix things.

“Due to the fact that I left home quite unexpectedly, I still have a lot of my personal belongings in our place of residence at Mohlakeng, Randfontein.

“I would like to request that I please get some assistance or an intervention from the elders of the Pulumo family on how to peacefully and respectfully retrieve my belongings left behind.”
