She explained that when Monde approached her, he already knew he loved her and wanted to be with her. However, Gogo Skhotheni had experienced heartbreak and mistreatment in the past, so she decided to give him isidliso to strengthen their love.
According to Gogo Skhotheni, korobela has been effective in their relationship, and they are still going strong after several years of marriage.

She emphasized the importance of understanding each other’s love languages and recognizing different ways of expressing love.
Money was another topic Gogo Skhotheni touched on during the conversation. She acknowledged that while money is not the sole foundation of love, it plays a role in maintaining a healthy relationship. Financial stability can alleviate stress and provide a sense of security.
Renowned sangoma Gogo Manzini explained how korobela works. Isidliso sothando is a mixture of herbs that can be used by one person to influence the feelings of love or passion in another. Different types of korobela exist, and some can be applied to the private parts to enhance intimacy. The herbs mix with bodily fluids like saliva, nails, or discharge, and can even include menstrual blood. The korobela can be consumed by the partner directly or added to food.
It is important to note that the use of korobela or any love potion should be approached with caution and consent from both partners. Relationships should be built on trust, communication, and mutual respect.
