SU­PERS­PORT soc­cer com­men­ta­tor Baba Mthethwa seems to be play­ing cat and mouse with the man he ac­cuses of try­ing to kill him.

The case against Ram­pharele Les­ley Boshielo was post­poned again in the Se­cunda Mag­is­trate s Court on Fri­day.

He is due to ap­pear for the fifth time on May 19 for at­tempted mur­der and ma­li­cious dam­age to property.

Boshielo (45), a Vaal Univer­sity of Tech­nol­ogy lec­turer and Sa­sol em­ployee, al­legedly fired shots at Mthethwa s house on De­cem­ber 7.

One of the bul­lets went through the garage door and hit the back of Mthethwa’s Lexus.

Boshielo ap­par­ently took mat­ters into his own hands be­cause he sus­pected that Mthethwa, who is mar­ried, was do­ing the nasty with his wife, Veron­ica, a sergeant at Se­cunda po­lice sta­tion.

In his af­fi­davit, Boshielo said his wife con­fessed to the af­fair, and that he for­gave her af­ter get­ting coun­selling from a pas­tor.

Zakir Ra­sool, Boshielo’s lawyer, said the state asked for a post­pone­ment be­cause Mthethwa failed to at­tend the court pro­ceed­ings.

We have tried on many oc­ca­sions to me­di­ate and set­tle this mat­ter out of court, but this man [Mthethwa] is not co-op­er­at­ing, said Ra­sool.

Mthethwa re­fused to com­ment when con­tacted.

He later re­sponded with an SMS that read: God bless you.”
