‘I found out that my husband had a wife soon after we got married’


SHE thought she was going to live happily ever after but slept on a drenched pillow every night.

Sinazo Mnukwana thought her dreams were coming true when the man she was in love with asked to marry her.

But the 28-year-old from the Eastern Cape was in the end deeply disappointed by her husband.

She claimed North West Amcu chairman, Loyiso Tyabuko, became a monster after their marriage in April.

“We moved to Rustenburg and I found out he had a wife.

“Every night he’d leave me alone to go and sleep with his wife.”

Sinazo said she was living and working in Cape Town when she met her husband, but he asked her to give it all up.

“When we got to Rustenburg, he booked me into a B&B while his first wife stayed at their home.

“Every night he’d come and insult and assault me before going back to her.”

Sinazo said she wanted to warn other women not to make the same mistake.

“I know there are other women this man is promising things, and I want them to know what kind of a man he is,” she said.

Sinazo said she had a protection order against him.

“I’m no longer with him. I’m broke and don’t have a place to stay because of him,” she said.

When the SunTeam contacted Loyiso, he said he couldn’t talk.

“I don’t want to discuss my family things in the newspaper. Please respect me,” he said.
