Sunday World - - Sunday Report - By Ng­wako Malatji ng­wakom@sun­day­world.co.za

The much-awaited DNA re­sults in­volv­ing re­tired foot­baller Mike “Sporo” Man­gena have re­vealed that his ny­atsi didn’t book him for a foul he didn’t com­mit.

Sun­day World can re­veal that the pa­ter­nity tests have re­vealed that Man­gena, 60, pic­tured , sired a child with the 23-year-old woman he has been bonk­ing be­hind his wife’s back.

The SABC sports com­men­ta­tor de­manded what in soccer cir­cles in known as VAR (the video as­sis­tant ref­eree) to de­ter­mine if he was the fa­ther of the child when the ny­atsi dragged him to the Palm Ridge mag­is­trate’s court for main­te­nance last month.

The girl­friend, who can­not be named to pro­tect the iden­tity of the 21-month-old child, con­firmed that the re­sults stated Man­gena was the fa­ther.

“The re­sults have re­vealed that he is 99.9% the fa­ther ofmy child. Ihave al­ways known that he was the fa­ther of my child and that he just de­manded the tests be­cause he was prob­a­bly buy­ing time.

“He is the only man I have been sleep­ing with and for him to de­mand the pa­ter­nity tests re­ally hurt me be­cause that cre­ated an im­pres­sion that I was sleep­ing around,” she said. The baby mama, who stayed in Man­gena’s rented apart­ment less than a kilo­me­tre away from his home in Liefde en Vrede, south of Joburg, also said the for­mer Kaizer Chiefs striker pleaded poverty when she de­manded R 15000 a month from him.

“He said he could only af­ford to pay R3 000 per month be­cause he doesn’t have any source of in­come. I agreed. He will pay the money into my ac­count at the end of ev­ery month,” she said.

Man­gena could not be reached for com­ment at the time of go­ing to press as he ig­nored our tele­phone calls and text mes­sages sent to him.
