Nonhle and Andile Jali’s marriage has been
in the spotlight over the past weeks, all thanks to the recent rants by the
footsie’s wife – but the couple’s relationship problems seem to have started
long before that.
From money problems, assault charges and love
children – the pair seem to have been through it all and still remained
DRUM takes a look at 5 scandals Nonhle and
Andile’s have had in the past few years.
Nonhle’s past marriage
affecting the their relationship
Back in 2015, Andile was
allegedly ready for marriage but Nonhle
wasn’t too keen as she was petrified by the thought of marriage after being
abused and belittled by her ex-husband.
“Andile is desperate to
get married but Nonhle is the one who is holding back,” a source told The
Speaking to DRUM in the
same year, Nonhle revealed how she was abused by her ex-husband, Themba Msiza.
“I was belittled in that
marriage and ended up lacking self-belief,” she said.
But speaking to DRUM,
Msiza denied the allegations and instead accused Nonhle of lying about her
degree and accused Nonhle of getting herself pregnant in order to win Andile
“I was with my friend
playing games,” he recalls. “She came over and that’s when the argument
started.” He says Nonhle started smashing things and admits he manhandled her and
broke his hand. He says Nonhle walked out after he tried to calm her down. “But
she came back and grabbed me by my private parts,” he claimed. “And that’s when
I punched her in the face.”
“If she didn’t get herself
pregnant, Andile was going to leave her. That’s her meal ticket”.
In a recent video rant,
Nonhle claimed that Andile’s Mamelodi Sundowns salary was
not enough to maintain her lifestyle.
“I’m supposed to be
wearing long peruvian inches (wigs) to show that my man can afford, but here I
am in braids,” she said in the video.
“There’s no money at
Sundowns. Even when they win a cup, you can’t even see where that money is
because it goes towards the schoolfees of Junior, Cupcake and Amahle (Andile’s
other children),” she continues before saying that Andile needed a ‘helper’ to
assist in maintaining his wife’s lifestyle.
But according to a close
friend of Nonhle’s who spoke to DRUM in 2018, the couple were never happy and
had financial problems.
“They have four kids in
the house, how much is the medical aid per child? And there are also school
fees to pay and food to buy – it became too much,” the source said before
revealing that Andile became an alcoholic due to financial stress.
“You would find him
drinking because of the stress. Sometimes people just have to accept when
things aren’t working out and move on.”
Other sources say the
couple “always fight” and “it’s always about money.
“She always wants money
from Andile. She wants to live this lavish lifestyle and Andile has to pay for
it. She is too demanding and he is just tired of her demanding antics,” the
sources told DRUM.
In 2018, Andile found
himself in hot water after allegedly assaulting Nonhle. According to sources
who spoke to The
Daily Sun, Jali allegedly assaulted her at his house in Pretoria.
“It sounded as if
well-known soccer star Andile Jali and his wife Nonhle Ndala were fighting.
Then Nonhle came running
out of the house, heading for her car – but the Sundowns midfielder caught up
with her and slapped her,” the resident told the publication.
Nonhle then went to Boschkop
police station where she laid a charge of domestic
violence and malicious damage to property against him.
Andile then also laid a counter charge of assault against his wife. He was
later granted bail
following his arrest.
According to reports,
after returning from Belgium in 2018, Andile Jali developed a drinking problem.
The footballer allegedly failed three pre-training breathalyser tests at Mamelodi
Sundowns, which resulted in him having argument with the club’s coach, Pitso
Since then, the SA
Football Players Union (SAFPU) has vowed to intervene by helping him sober up.
Speaking to City
Press, Thulaganyo Gaoshubelwe , SAFPU president said “I spoke to
Andile and we have agreed to meet next week (this coming week) as he was busy
preparing for their game (played yesterday) against Baroka FC.
“We are prepared to
intervene if indeed there are problems. But first we need to sit down with him
and get to the bottom of this, because we cannot just go according to media
But according to sources
who spoke to DRUM, Andile drinks because of the stress that Nonhle causes him.
“He drinks because he is stressed,” a source
at the couple’s complex says.
“After the match on
Saturday [before the night of the alleged assault] he came back drunk. “But his
wife fought with him and he drove out shortly afterwards saying he wanted some
fresh air because his wife was starting a fight with him.”
His excessive drinking led
to him getting
arrested for drunk driving in May 2018.
“He was released on R1,000
bail,” TMPD spokesperson Senior Superintendent Isaac Mahamba told IOL.
Infidelity and love
The couple have three kids
together, including twins, and a child each from previous relationships but
Andile found himself on the wrong side of the law again in 2019 when he was taken
to court for defaulting on child support payments.
According to a Sunday
World report, Jali fathered a child with a unnamed businesswoman
while married to his wife Nonhle Ndala.
