Former Warriors captain Peter Ndlovu has sired 13 children with different women and is struggling to maintain them.
Ndlovu, who is currently Mamelodi Sundowns team manager, is supporting his children with the R130 000 monthly salary from the Brazilians.
The former Coventry City striker recently approached the Johannesburg High Court seeking to overturn the garnishee order by the Joburg Magistrate’s Court to force his bosses to dock his salary for his other two children.
Ndlovu is pleading with the court to set aside the order, which forced his club to deduct over R140 000 in arrears.
He said he takes home R82 125.49 after R50 940. 78 deductions and if the amounts continued to be deducted from his salary, his other kids would be prejudiced. He said:
I have 13 children, including the two children I have with the first respondent. I’m obliged to contribute and see to the maintenance needs of all 13 of my children. I can simply not afford a deduction of R29 845 per month from my monthly salary.
Ndlovu said he first heard of the existence of the children in 2016 when their mother filed a maintenance lawsuit against him in the Joburg Magistrate’s Court.
The order also made provision for him to pay school fees, stationery, transport, school uniforms and pay their medical aid and R6 000 for winter and summer clothes.
He said since the order was slapped on him, a total of R79 845 was deducted from his salary by Sundowns.
In January, this year, the woman appeared in court again seeking to increase the papgeld amount to R55 000 a month.
Ndlovu is now pleading with the court to set aside the order until he sees the arrears.
