Sunday World - - News -

SINCE its for­ma­tion in 1997, Jakes Com­mu­ni­ca­tions has been in­volved in soc­cer event man­age­ment and is owned by Kaizer Chiefs mar­ket­ing man­ager Jes­sica Mo­taung and her former part­ner Ken Simmons.

Be­fore their much pub­li­cised break-up due to a love re­la­tion­ship with one of Kaizer Chiefs em­ploy

’ ees, Thato Matuka, Mo­taung ended their long en­gage­ment and moved out of the Bryanston home they shared with their two kids.

Simmons ac­cused Mo­taung of hav­ing an af­fair with Matuka and con­fronted the young lover early this year.

As ten­sions reached boil­ing point, Mo­taung de­cided to move out of their up­scale house with the chil­dren.

In March Sun­day World re­vealed de­tails of the strained re­la­tion­ship and that Mo­taung was liv­ing with her mom in Hyde Park, north of Jozi.

As things stand, it is not clear whether the busi­ness part­ners have gone their sep­a­rate ways re­gard­ing Jakes Com­mu­ni­ca­tions.

Mo­taung and Matuka had de­nied they were lovers. Said Mo­taung then: Ken

“and I have per­sonal prob­lems that have noth­ing to do with a third party. I can con­firm that we are no longer en­gaged.” Matuka said: There s

“’ noth­ing go­ing on be­tween me and Jes­sica. She is my boss and ob­vi­ously she has an in­ter­est in my work.”

But since then the two have come out of their shell and have been seen to­gether at soc­cer matches and other sport­ing events.
