Mbokazi's SABC1 slot will deal with relationships and family matters.

The former Gospel Gold presenter will be the face on, and the brains behind, Khwezela/Rekindle, starting on June 10. The show will flight every Sunday at 5.30pm.

Mbokazi, who is an author and preacher, has been conducting seminars under the same name, at which she counsels couples about their relationship and family troubles.

"I am a preacher of the Word, an author and an inspirational speaker. We have been doing the Khwezela seminars for singles and married couples since 2008.

"I have always been fascinated by relationships.

"When I went through my divorce, I realised that there was so much that I could have done differently if I had been better equipped during my first marriage.

"So I've promised myself that I will push to assist singles to understand themselves and the institution of marriage before they take their vows.

"The same goes for married couples. A lot of people live a lie because of relationships going wrong," Mbokazi says.

A statement from her publicist reads: "This is a never-seen-before, exciting, Christian show which aims to tackle topics relevant to modern families and thoroughly deals with the challenges of relationships whilst providing practical, achievable, biblical solutions through various experts that will be invited to the show.

"Her latest best-selling book, co-authored with her hubby, Bishop Mpendulo Nkambule, Before The Vows, testifies!"

Mbokazi says she has "felt the pulse of the real people on the ground" and turned to television to "help more people".

"TV is the next best avenue to reach more people with this dynamic message," she says.

"The divorce rate is alarming. Though I know no-one has a perfect formula for a solid successful, divorce-proof marriage, it is important however to emphasise that the show will use God and His Word as the ultimate compass and guide on all relationship issues."
