Baby Flo

Flo is Andile Mpisane’s firstborn daughter, together with his ex-girlfriend Sithelo Shozi. The little girl was named after Andile’s grandmother, the political icon Florence Mkhize. MaMkhize has never shied away from showing love towards her granddaughter despite her relationship with Sithelo.

Abduction allegations

Earlier this year, Sithelo reportedly dragged MaMkhize and Andile to court, accusing them of “unlawfully and unconstitutionally” abducting baby Flo. Sithelo claimed that MaMkhize asked to see baby Flo in March 2022. By January 2023, Sithole was still waiting for her baby’s return. She said she was told baby Flo was ill and that MaMkhize was taking care of her at her La Lucia Mansion in Durban.

“For over 10 months now, there has been no further communication [on her illness] … It’s clear that [Mpisane and Mkhize] had ulterior motives, which is to abduct [her].

“I would often have a WhatsApp video call, but I have since been blocked by the helper and have no access to the child at all,” Sithole added in an affidavit seen by TimesLive.
