Johannesburg - It couldn't have been easy for actress Letoya Makhene to reveal the shocking details of her abusive marriage.

But the normally reserved Letoya recently told The Juice that she did it for all abused women out there. 

The soap star recently sat down for a tell-all interview with True Love magazine where she opened up.

"It's never easy to talk about a painful part of my life but somewhere, somehow I needed to grow and draw strength from the situation. I guess it was part of my healing process," she told The Juice in a chat recently.

She says she was inspired by the world around her when she decided to break her silence.

"I know we live in a world where many woman are in abusive relationships and I felt like I needed to share my story with my people, to inspire them to stand up and take their power back," she adds.
