Foot­baller’s wife de­mand­ing pa­ter­nity test to force him to pay main­te­nance for their son

The wife of Or­lando Pi­rates striker Tendai Ndoro is drag­ging the star player to main­te­nance court, de­mand­ing that he pay her R40 000 a month for the care of their eight-month-old son. Ndoro, sources close to Zinhle claim, ap­par­ently earns in the re­gion of R150 000 a month. City Press has also learnt that Ndoro’s es­tranged wife is chal­leng­ing him to un­dergo a pa­ter­nity test be­cause, she says, her hus­band seems to be hid­ing their son from the world – yet he poses on so­cial me­dia with his four-year-old son from his pre­vi­ous re­la­tion­ship.

One of Zinhle’s con­fi­dantes told City Press this week that she was sick and tired of “shield­ing and pro­tect­ing” Ndoro.

“All this time, Zinhle has been pro­tect­ing the fa­ther of her child, but she has had enough now. Ndoro must man up and do what is right for his son,” the con­fi­dante said.

Ndoro’s ex-girl­friend, Ado Mo­hale, told City Press this week that Ndoro “never re­spected” Zinhle.

“When I used to date him, he never told me that he was married. He lied and said he was friends with Zinhle,” Mo­hale said.

Mo­hale said as far as she was con­cerned, Ndoro was be­ing eco­nom­i­cal with the truth.

“Af­ter I found out that he was with Zinhle, I de­cided to break up with him,” she said.

Ndoro did not re­spond to re­quests for com­ment. Or­lando Pi­rates ad­min­is­tra­tive of­fi­cer Floyd Mbele said: “I’m afraid you’re not get­ting hold of Ndoro, be­cause he’s cur­rently in camp he’s pre­par­ing for the game this evening. Fur­ther than that, I’m not al­lowed to com­ment on his per­sonal mat­ters.”

Zinhle nei­ther con­firmed nor de­nied the al­le­ga­tions. All she would say be­fore hang­ing up was: “I don’t com­ment about my pri­vate life in the pa­pers. My pri­vate life has noth­ing to do with the pa­pers.”

Zinhle’s con­fi­dante told City Press that ev­ery month, she has had to “threaten” Ndoro in or­der for him to pay main­te­nance. Fed up, she has now de­cided to take the le­gal route.

“Ev­ery month she has to re­mind him to sup­port their son fi­nan­cially. He is the one who in­tro­duced Zinhle to a lux­ury life­style and he must pay what she is de­mand­ing,” she said.

Sources close to the cou­ple claim that the Zim­bab­wean in­ter­na­tional foot­baller left Zinhle when their son was two months old.

“Ndoro is cur­rently dat­ing Pa­tience Ndlovu and they are liv­ing to­gether in a north­ern Jo­han­nes­burg sub­urb,” the con­fi­dante said. Ndoro and Ndlovu’s re­la­tion­ship is no se­cret. In May, Ndoro at­tended the Premier Soc­cer League Awards with Ndlovu by his side. On the day of the event, Ndlovu called Ndoro her “hus­band” on live tele­vi­sion.

“Zinhle was shocked and up­set when she saw them pos­ing to­gether for the first time,” said Zinhle’s friend. “Even though she knew that there was an­other woman in his life, the pic­ture con­firmed ev­ery­thing.”

It’s not the first time Ndoro is mak­ing head­lines for the wrong rea­sons. In Au­gust last year, Sun­day Sun re­ported that there were three women in Ndoro’s life: Ndlovu, Mo­hale and Thembi Mn­tambo. The pa­per re­ported that each of these women was claim­ing that Ndoro was theirs, but it ap­pears that Ndlovu is the woman who fi­nally won Ndoro’s heart.

Last month, Ndoro de­lighted Pi­rates fans af­ter scor­ing two goals in his club’s first match of the 2016/17 sea­son against Golden Ar­rows.
