In honour of his memory, the late actor’s foundation has shared a video of his wife Sikelelwa Ngubane pouring her heart on the one-year anniversary of his passing.
“It’s been tough but myself and the kids have been soldering on. We are trying to make sense of things. You know there are days when I miss you so much. You are the only person I could talk to about everything and anything,” she expresses.
Sikelelwa says she still talks to her husband “in spirit” and “hopes that he can hear her.”
She adds: “You left a big hole in our hearts, not only within the family but in South Africa as a whole. It’s not easy, but we persevere. Like you used to say: If you don’t push in life who will push you?”
Each and every day she prays “that the Lord grants her the strength to accept that he is no longer here with them physically.”
Speaking about the love that Menzi showed her and their family, she doubts she’ll ever experience that kind of love again.
“You’ll always live in our hearts and you’ll always be loved. I ask that you look over us in everything we do in this world,” she adds.
Sikelelwa hopes “the way she’s been carrying herself is making Menzi happy in his resting place. So that everyone can see that Menzi “never waste his money when he sent his representatives to come and ask for Sikelelwa’s hand in marriage.”
