Po­lice hot on the heels of fraud­ster

Sunday World - - News - MOSA MOKHEMA

FOR­MER Gen­er­a­tions ac­tor Melusi Yeni re­fuses to cough up for his al­leged child.

Claim­ing to be Yeni’s baby mama, Palesa Yvo­dia Molemela filed for main­te­nance, de­mand­ing that he pay her about R23 000 for birth ex­penses and other re­lated pre­na­tal ex­penses, gy­nae­col­o­gist and pae­di­a­tri­cian, and R10 500 for hospi­tal [stay] as well as R5 000 a month from Jan­uary 31”.

But Yeni (35) has hired top lawyer ad­vo­cate Barn­abas Xulu, who re­cently rep­re­sented Western Cape Judge Pres­i­dent John Hlophe.

Xulu says they had asked that a pa­ter­nity test be done be­fore Yeni can com­mit to the child’s fi­nan­cial sup­port.

Sun­day World saw Molemela’s main­te­nance or­der ap­pli­ca­tion, filed at the Rand­burg Mag­is­trate’s Court, in which she de­mands about R40 000 from the ac­tor.

In her af­fi­davit, Molemela (28) says she gave birth to the child in Novem­ber and that the de­fen­dant is the bi­o­log­i­cal fa­ther”.

Molemela says she is cur­rently un­em­ployed, but shall re­sume shortly as a per­sonal trainer”.

Her ap­pli­ca­tion in­cludes en­ter­tain­ment, hol­i­days and pocket money for about R4 000 a month.

Yeni ques­tioned the pa­ter­nity claims and last month the court gave him per­mis­sion to un­dergo tests. My client is go­ing to un­dergo pa­ter­nity tests on March 3. We are not go­ing to an­swer any ques­tions be­fore those tests,” says Xulu.

Yeni and Molemela live in sep­a­rate houses at the Jackal Creek Golf Es­tate in Honey­dew. Xulu will not com­ment on their re­la­tion­ship.

Molemela re­fuses to com­ment and Yeni refers all ques­tions to his lawyer.
