VETERAN actress Sonia Mbele has vowed to make her son face his demons and take accountability for his actions.

This comes after her son trended on social media on accusations of domestic abuse by his girlfriend. Screenshots of the alleged vile act and a video have been trending since the girlfriend posted them on her Instagram page.

In the video, the girl can be seen crying her eyes out, accusing him of deleting her post. She said he deleted her posts about his alleged abusive behavior towards her because he didn’t want people to see what he had allegedly done.

Responding to the allegations, Sonia said she would let the law take its course. “I refuse to raise a man like his father. Rehab, therapy, and internal healing will prevail,” she said.

She said she woke up this morning (Wednesday, 23 November) to a different world, a world she thought she had long buried. 

She said from the age of 17 to 26 she was with a man who was physically, psychologically and emotionally abusive.

“I'm mentioning this so that you understand that as a woman who has suffered all kinds of abuse, I do not stand for, support or condone such stance.

“These are struggles I've spoken about extensively in my early career to encourage other women in similar situations,” she said.

Sonia further said she not only welcomed the girlfriend into her home, but she treated her as a daughter and worked with her in support of her career in the entertainment industry.

She said she would like to reassure her that she still had her love and full support. She said as a mother she wished she had come to her to inform her on what was going on because finding out on social media broke her heart.

“I've always been there. I've always been supportive. I now realise I should have taken preventative measures much earlier such as counselling or child therapy. But sometimes the mistake we tend to make as African single mothers is to assume and hope that things will work out for the best meanwhile certain past behaviours can affect generations to come,” she said.
