[Watch]Kgolo gives REAL reason behind his wife Annie’s ‘RHOD’ exit
Businesswoman Annie Mthembu is not a part of the ‘RHOD’ season four and her husband, Kgolo Mthembu, has explained why.
Businessman Kgolo “Daguru” Mthembu has opened up about why his wife, Annie Mthembu, is not a part of the Real Housewives of Durban (RHOD) cast.
Annie, who has been on the popular reality TV since the first season, was not mentioned as a cast member when Showmax announced the fourth season.
Returning cast members include Nonku Williams, Sorisha Naidoo, Jojo Robinson, Slindile “Slee” Ndlovu, and Maria Valaskatzis. Joining them this season is Angela Ndlela, Zama Ngcobo and Ameigh Thompson. The season premieres on 9 February.
‘I NEEDED A MENTAL HEALTH BREAK’
In an Instagram post earlier this month, the businesswoman said that she needed to prioritise her mental health.
“Unfortunately I had to sit this season out because I needed a mental health break, some time for reflection and also to focus on my businesses which have been growing in the background and this time around needed me to be more present to assist with their growth, ” she wrote.

Going into more detail, her husband revealed that their financial situation has also played a role in her exit.
Kgolo told Sunday World that his wife had to pull out of the much-loved reality series because his financial situation was dire.
“My wife will go back to Real Housewives of Durban when she’s ready. She is now committed to other business errands that need her undivided attention,” the publication quoted him as saying.
He further shared that he was robbed of R750 000, allegedly by his employees.
“Last year my club was robbed of R750 000. I asked my employees questions about how this happened, only to learn later that one of them or a group of them came in the club with a speed point from another business and swapped it with my club’s speed point and stole money. It has been happening since the busy weekend of Durban July. It’s heart-breaking what happened to my businesses,” he said.
