FOR­MER box­ing cham­pion Din­gaan Tho­bela is knock­ing on prison’s door.

Tho­bela faces ar­rest af­ter his half­brother, Bon­gani Nd­lalane, opened a case of per­jury against him at Kag­iso po­lice sta­tion on Thurs­day.

This came af­ter Tho­bela al­legedly lied that Nd­lalane pulled a gun on him at Ler­a­tong Hospi­tal, where Tho­bela s fa­ther was be­ing treated for a bul­let wound.

The old man was shot by un­known crim­i­nals at Tho­bela’s Zu­urbekom plot in March.

Nd­lalane was ar­rested and de­tained for a night as a re­sult of Tho­bela s story.

He gained his free­dom the fol­low­ing day af­ter the Krugers­dorp Mag­is­trate s Court dis­missed the case on the grounds that there was no prima fa­cie ev­i­dence to pros­e­cute.

Nd­lalane con­firmed that he opened a case of per­jury against Tho­bela.

I feel that Din­gaan must pay for his sins. He lied about me pulling a gun on him and that has dam­aged my rep­u­ta­tion.

I have wit­nesses who can give ev­i­dence that I did not do it. If any­thing, he is the one who in­sulted his mother by call­ing her a slut,” he said.

Tho­bela was adamant that Nd­lalane pulled a gun on him and said he would de­fend him­self in court.

Po­lice spokesman Andile Vanqa con­firmed that Nd­lalane opened a case of per­jury against Tho­bela.
