Parents & Siblings
Mokhethi lost his mother in a car accident in 2013. She had helped him battle several behavioral challenges when he was younger. He told Sunday World, “In 2013, I lost my mother and my younger brother in a car accident. My brother was driving when they were hit by another car and they died on the spot.” He also opened up about how close they were before they died, “My mother and I were so close that we referred to each other as friends, and my brother was like a son to me because we had lost our father in 1999, so I was doing all the fatherly duties.”
Mokhethi was married to Gaaratwe, and they had three children, including Thabisa and Thaboya Morena Christian. He told Sunday World that 2014 was a hard year for both of them. They began having marriage issues due to his loneliness and depression after losing his immediate family. He said he physically abused his wife and sort help from two therapists.
“2014 was the worst year of our lives, my wife and I. I realized I was in a dark place when I started hurting the only person I love the most in this world. I became physically abusive to my wife, and because of that, I almost lost my family until I realized I had a problem that needed to be dealt with,”
He said, “When I hurt my wife, I realized I had to change. So, I opened myself up to therapy because I value peace and love, and joy. I knew therapy works because it had worked when I was in rehab for drugs many years ago. I also spoke to my pastor at church because I had guilt, shame, and doubt. I wondered if God knew I even existed. My relationship with God saved me, and now my wife is my best friend, and I want to thank her for giving me a chance to change my life.” They later separated.
