She even told Robert that,
“You don’t have to worry about the child or be in the child’s life if you don’t wish to be the part of our life”

Unlike what was expected, Patricia’s marriage with Abel wasn’t as successful as Patricia had to go through several physical and mental abuse from her husband Abel. Not only that but both Andrew and his brother were also abused mentally and physically.
As a result, the family couldn’t cope with Ngisaveni abusive ways and Particia decided to start a life of peace with her children. So, Abel and his ex-wife Patricia legally parted ways in 1996.

After her divorce from Abel, Andrew Shingange’s mother Patricia married Sfiso Khoza. She was living a peaceful life with her second husband, Sfiso Khoza until 2009.

In addition to this, Abel even raised his gun and shot a few times at her second-spouse Khoza. After that, Abel was sent to jail for three years in an attempt to murder by the Jeppe Magistrates Court.
Not only that, he threatened to hunt down then-25-year-old Trevor and kill him. Thankfully, Abel couldn’t do that as Trevor had already fled to Los Angeles.
Patricia even gave an interview with Daily Mail, where she said,
“I am lucky to be alive. When God writes he has to write for humans and he gives you a message that God is bigger than death.”
Apart from this, she interacted with the media and revealed that she had to change her name as she was afraid her ex-husband will come again to harm her at the hospital.
