Bafana star faces arrest

2012-05-10 10:17

Johannesburg - Mamelodi Sundowns captain Teko Modise faces possible jail time after failing to pay R31 000 in monthly maintenance to his estranged wife, the Cape Times reported on Thursday.

The Bafana Bafana star was R52 000 in arrears after defaulting on a February court order to pay his wife, Ntswaki Felicia Modise.

She reportedly wanted him to be held in contempt of court and locked up. According to court papers he earned about R150 000 a month and amassed wealth from endorsement deals with a deodorant brand and electronics company. He was also an ambassador for a fast-food chain during the 2010 Soccer World Cup.

His wife approached the courts in November after he apparently deregistered their daughter from their medical aid and kicked them both out of their house.

According to the report, Modise had until Friday to file papers opposing the application, failing which the matter would be set down for a formal hearing in two weeks. The two were in the process of getting divorced amid claims of infidelity.

    You don't treat your family like that. Get your act together .

    Teko, stop eating Nando's, KFC and Chicken Lickin and start paying your child support. Be a man.

    Teko is a role model not young stars but also to his age group fellow and child, so example he's setting is humiliating to us fathers and world widely. He must start acting professionally, maturely, and like responsible man now or never. Its rumoured that he earns R150 000 a month which is my yearly income but i can take charge of children. Or may be he is fond of buying expensive cars, making fancy moohawk hairstyles, and even whole body tattoes. You are a shame boss!!! Stand up support ya blood plzzzz. Stop defamating our charactor as man.

  • joseph.mogoru - 2012-05-10 11:13

    Eish! that is your commitment Teko assume as if is one of your instalments e.g. Car, House. Don't degrade yourself

  • VaMbozha - 2012-05-10 11:14

    "claims of infidelity" on whose part? I bet if its the wife then the young man cannot feed her boyfrends..and probably the child wont be his, would need DNA test to prove. If he is the one who is cheating then wake up boyy and be a man and look after your family.

    31g is nothing to a man hu used to earn, or earns 150g per month!!! He better pull his socks together and be daddy dearest to his child! A child is a blessing from God, what if teko never gets a child again? He better live up to his responsibilities! I am actually disappointed to be reading this article about him...

  • Gcwabe.KaMavovo - 2012-05-10 11:32

    This lady is earning a nice untaxed R31k salary. Offcourse she'll fight for every cent of it.

  • ntunjab - 2012-05-10 11:34

  • Tokelo MediaOwner Fako - 2012-05-10 11:56

    When the \wife of your youth\ does this you really ask yourself questions of whether she said I do for the right reason.. Ai shaking my head

  • ndyeboreginaldmazawule - 2012-05-10 12:31

    Pay up brother please, we want on the field of play and behind bars and yes this challenge will pass u will see.

  • afrikeni - 2012-05-10 12:36

    I can see tears at the end of this saga. So if Teko reveals to have 2 more kids and those cases are brought before the same magistrate - will s/he grant the R31K each. After this the whole R90K after tax will be finished on 3 kids maintenance. Courts should not be used to settle other agendas. YES, he should pay, but R31K for a kid?

  • Itumeleng - 2012-05-10 13:09

    Where will she get the R3100 frm when he's locked-up.She is just out to distroy the man.

      Sean - 2012-05-11 00:52

      Great mentality !!! FFS !

  • Faizie - 2012-05-10 13:12

    Own Goal dude. Stop being typical and pay for your child. Eish

  • Mzikayise - 2012-05-10 13:16

    Teko uyabhayiza mfe@ you should have pretended this chick and stay with her until you have proper exit plan remeber it was cheaper staying with her than R31 000.00 monthly, its now denting yo career and i promise you "YOU WILL NEVA PLAY FOR BAFANA AGAIN"

  • John - 2012-05-10 14:25

      dmbiza - 2012-06-01 05:36

  • Franklyn - 2012-05-10 17:53

    If you score goals with the girls then you must be prepared for overtime....about 20 years of overtime.
