Actor Maake ka-Ncube, ex-lover in R4m feud

2013-10-06 16:23
Johannesburg - Legendary actor Sello Maake ka-Ncube is embroiled in a legal drama with his ex-girlfriend, Thandi Ngcobo, over R4?m they received from the National Lottery Board Trust Fund while they were still a couple, City Press reported on Sunday.

Maake ka-Ncube obtained an order from the North Gauteng High Court to freeze the funds, which are held in the bank account of Ngcobo’s organisation, Batebang Community Services.

Ngcobo has challenged the order and the matter will be heard at the end of October in the same court.

A source close to the pair told the paper that when they were lovers, Maake ka-Ncube and Ngcobo wrote a joint proposal to the board.

They wanted funds to host awards for the people who work behind the scenes in the radio and television industries.

The couple were given R4m upfront and were supposed to get another R1?m after the awards.

Their relationship ended acrimoniously in 2011 after, it’s alleged, Ngcobo discovered that Maake ka-Ncube was having an affair.

The board only approved funding for their proposed project in May this year, the paper said.
