Mashaba, who has managed to keep her personal life out of the limelight, told Drum in 2017 that she had suffered two miscarriages.

“After two miscarriages, I gave everything to God,” she told the publication.

“Sometimes I joke and say maybe God knows if He gives me children now, I’m going to neglect the other responsibilities I have.”

Mashaba reportedly finalised her divorce from her husband of 16 years, Makgokgo Makgopa.
