WATCH: ‘Widows Unveiled’ star Lerato Maphatsoe gets real about her journey

The wife of former and late defence minister Kebby Maphatsoe, Lerato, who is also the co-executive producer of Widows Unveiled, got candid about her struggles after her husband’s death.

Her healing journey has been laced with legal battles and extra-marital affair allegations since her husband’s passing in 2021.

Picking up the pieces and providing stability for herself and their three children hasn’t been an easy journey, Lerato admitted. But the wives of her late husband’s older brothers have been a strong support structure.

Though she knows her husband wouldn’t approve of the show, Lerato said getting the nod from her children gave her courage to tell her story.

“When he was alive, maybe he was not going to approve. But he’s no longer here. I’m a very spiritual person. I meet with him in the spirit world and he’s a different person. He has apologised numerous times to me, saying ‘you know what, Lerato, I’m sorry’. So, I don’t think it will be a problem for him for me to speak my truth in this show.”

Lerato joins four other cast members who are going through similar challenges and has formed a bond with some.

“I’m very close, very tight with three of the cast members. The problem is with one lady and the funny thing is I brought her to the show, but there’s a lot that’s happening with her. I’ve decided to distance myself from her because I don’t want to find myself being involved in altercations and saying things that are not kind.”
