Respondents born from our father’s girlfriend – Gustah Mthethwa
In her founding affidavit, Maida Gustah Mthethwa submitted that the respondents are not related to them as they are children to their father’s girlfriend.
She submitted that her father’s girlfriend Lily Velepho Khoza who is also late during her affair with their father had already three older children in the three respondents.
She stated that the late Khoza was not married to their father but was merely brought in to the association to continue with the sugarcane project since both their (applicants) parents had died and she (Maidah) was in South Africa too. “During this period, the late Khoza forged documents my father Bernard Mthethwa, which and alleged that she was married to is incorrect and she claimed to be the rightful person to the estate of my late father, however the fourth respondent knows that I am the successor,” she alleged. She told the court that the late Khoza and the respondents allegedly further forged other documents in possession of the Master of the High Court and thus the office is better suited to attend to the matter urgently. She submitted that the matter was urgent because the proceeds from the sugarcane quota rightfully belonged to them and not the first respondent adding that once payment is received by the first respondent, she will definitely utilise it in whatever way she deems appropriate to the financial prejudice of them as applicants, a situation they are trying to curtail by bringing the present proceedings before court.
