Bafana star in bar brawl

Johannesburg - An ANC heavyweight got more than he bargained for when he tried to "steal" Katlego Mphela's pretty partner, reports the Sowetan.

North West ANC deputy chairman China Dodovu tried to woo the girl at Club Moloko in Pretoria on Friday.

Bafana Bafana and Mamelodi Sundowns striker Katlego Mphela and Dodovu were guests at Club Moloko in Pretoria for Tony's Crib fashion show.

Dubbed "Killer" because of his penchant for goals and running the opposition ragged, Mphela would have none of Dodovu's moves.

Eyewitnesses say a scuffle ensued between the two men. It was only ended by the quick intervention of the bouncers, who separated them.

Mphela also allegedly said that Dodovu always took his girlfriends.

Sources close to Dodovu said he and the woman, who is a student, started dating during the 2010 Soccer World Cup.

"Dodovu was shocked to see the woman with Mphela," said one witness.

Club Moloko manager Monty Denalane confirmed the incident.

"It was Katlego's friend who started all the trouble. He apparently got angry because the other guy (Dodovu) was disturbing Katlego's girlfriend. Our bouncers came and stopped the fight."

But Dodovu denied having a fight with Mphela.

He said he was not at the event and did not fight with anyone over a woman.

"I do not know what you are talking about. I am a happily married man with children. I would never fight with anyone over any woman but my wife. I have never met Katlego personally in my life."

Asked about what happened, Mphela first denied he was at Moloko. Pressed for more answers, he said he was at the venue but did not have a fight with anyone.

"I was just socialising with my friend," he said before saying no comment and dropping his phone.
