Sandile Zungu’s wife is Nozipho Magubane. Sandile, the AmaZulu football club president, has two daughters – Sinenjabulo Zungu and Nobuholi Nala Zungu, born from his first and second marriages, respectively.
Mr. Zungu’s marriage to Magubane was his second marriage following the death of his first wife many years ago. The AmaZulu boss also had a brief love affair with a well-known South African woman, but the union terminated suddenly for reasons that are still unknown.
Sandile Zungu is Married to One Woman
Umlazi Township, Durban-born Sandile Zungu is currently married to one woman. However, he has been in two marital relationships, with his second marriage being the latest.
His first marriage came to an abrupt end as a result of his first wife’s death. Prior to his second marriage, Zungu had a short-lived romantic relationship with Real Housewives of Durban (RHOD) star Slee Ndlovu.
The two dated in 2016, shortly after the death of Zungu’s first wife. While the AmaZulu boss has been tight-lipped about his and Slee’s failed relationship, which almost led to marriage, Ndlovu claimed that the businessman dumped her after they had a minor argument.
They actually got engaged in 2019, but they couldn’t take their relationship to the next level. While their relationship lasted, Slee helped in taking care of Zungu’s children and also managing his multiple businesses, including the Zunguness Foundation, which was launched by his late wife.
She and Zungu started dating two years after the former divorced her husband, with whom she had three kids.
He is Currently Married to Nozipho Magubane
Nozipho Magubane is the name of the second and current wife of Sandile Zungu. The two got married on June 24th, 2022, in a colorful and lavish wedding ceremony that took place in the KwaZulu-Natal Midlands.
Sandile and Nosipho’s big day was graced by so many prominent South Africans, including A-list celebrities, politicians, business moguls, and other prominent faces in the sports world, including billionaire CAF boss Patrice Motsepe.
It’s not clear when and where the two met for the first time and how long they dated before marriage. One thing that is clear, however, is that Zungu and his wife started seeing each other after he called it quits with RHOD star Slee Ndlovu.

Magubane was born in Empangeni in Kwazulu Natal province and currently serves as a Non-Executive Independent Director of an Energy Company. She kick-started her career in the South African electricity public utility, Eskom.
Zungu’s new wife also practiced privately as a consulting electrical engineer before she was hired by an energy company, where she started serving as the chief director of the company’s Department of Minerals and Energy.

Prior to her death, she was the manager and owner of the upmarket and popular wedding and conference center Zungness in Nottingham Road, KwaZulu-Natal. She was a strong support system to her husband during his early years in the business world.
