Deputy minister of telecommunications and postal services Stella Ndabeni-Abrahams's marriage to her husband Thato Abrahams has been tossed into the post box of troubled nuptials.
This after she discovered that Thato allegedly bonked ANC Youth League (ANCYL) national executive committee member Sizophila Mkhize in their house in Silverton, Pretoria, earlier this year.
After hearing that Stella discovered the extra-marital affair, and that the deputy minister posted pictures of her on Facebook with funny captions and comments, Mkhize allegedly contemplated taking her own life.
In a message she apparently sent to ANCYL president Collen Maine for intervention, Mkhize asked him to take care of her son and mother.
"I have never thought of taking my own life but this is beyond me. Please do take care of my mother and my son. I'm sorry I messed up. Maybe I'm a coward but its (sic) ok. I don't deserve to live," it reads.
Maine allegedly posted this message on the ANCYL WhatsApp group apparently after a political fallout with her. Maine couldn't be reached for comment.
When contacted about Thato's alleged infidelity, Stella denied any knowledge thereof. "Thanks for the info, please do send me the proof of my husband's cheating after your story or whenever you feel it's OK. As for me, it's not about the news but knowing what happened," she said in a written reply.
