BAFANA BAFANA and former Mamelodi Sundowns player Bongani Zungu’s love life has allegedly taken a new direction.

After he broke up with his girlfriend Khanyi Cele last year, the two are said to be back in each other’s arms again.

And this time, he has allegedly shown maturity and decided to take the relationship to the next level.

Sunday Sun sources close to the couple allege that Bongani has already assembled a family delegation to go to Khanyi’s family for ilobolo negotiations.

One of their friends told Sunday Sun the two were so in love and serious about life together.

The friend said Khanyi was forever flying in and out of Portugal to be with Bongani.

“Khanyi is often in Portugal with Bongani, she moved in with him late last year. She’s ready to be his wife. You can see the way she’s carrying herself.

“And there’s a level of maturity in Bongani’s behaviour also, which I can say is the reason for his plans to pay ilobolo for Khanyi,” said the friend.

Another source said: “Bongani’s move to Portugal is the reason why Khanyi decided to work things out with him – because she knew he would be homesick most of the time, as he was alone.

“But we’re happy for them and hope they’ll end their endless series of bust-ups and reconciliations.”

Last year, the SunTeam reported that Bongani was working toward paying ilobolo for Khanyi, but didn’t stop cheating.

And that allegedly led to one of the several break-ups staged by the passionate couple.

Sunday Sun has reported about their roller-coaster relationship on several occasions.

Bongani and Khanyi were not available for comment.
