Kaizer Motaung Jnr‘s estranged wife Katherine Motaung has asked court to permanently allow her leave South Africa for Germany.
Katherine launched an urgent court application at the South Gauteng High Court this last week asking the court to allow her to skip the country with all her belongings including the two children she had with the retired goal-poacher.
Sunday Sun is in possession of the affidavit detailing allegations of the intimidation and assault she suffered at the hands of her husband outside their kids’ primary school.
“I have filed a counterclaim in which I seek to relocate permanently with the minor children to Germany, subject to the respondent’s contact to them. I have also sought ancillary relief,” she said in her affidavit.
Katherine further revealed that Kaizer Motaung Jnr had first manhandled her in February and continued to intimidate her in the months that followed prior to her court application.
She spilled the beans on the retired footie while opening a case of intimidation and assault against him.
“On 1 February 2017, my husband Kaizer Motaung Jnr and I had arranged a parent/teacher meeting with our son’s (name withdrawn) teacher at the (name of school withdrawn) at lunchtime.
“After Kaizer closed the door of the car, he walked past me and pushed me hard with his arm/elbow. He kept shouting at me, saying I was disgusting being at the school. I told him to stop pushing me,” she said.
Police spokesperson, Tintswalo Sibeko, said the docket was booked for court and she would respond to our questions at a later stage.
National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) spokesperson, Phindi Louw, said the docket was with the police for further investigation.
“Once concluded, it shall be brought back to the NPA for a decision on whether to proceed with prosecution or not,” she said.
Katherine also alleged that Kaizer Jnr, who is expected to take over the reins at Chiefs when his dad retires, was making her live in fear.
“My husband and I had an argument about what transpired above via an SMS. He sent me an SMS, saying ‘All the best, you will need it as your time is running out’. I perceive this to be a threat on my life.
“I was scared when I received that message as there had been a lot of hostile behaviour from my husband toward me previously.
“I rushed home and told my mum what happened and showed her the text message. She was also worried.
“I forwarded a screen shot of the threat to my attorney, John Schneider,” she said.
Kaizer Jnr and Katherine were not available to comment.
Kaizer Chiefs spokesperson Vina Maphosa said: “If it was about the club, then I would talk. But I have nothing to do with their private lives.”
Schneider, who spoke on behalf of Katharine, confirmed she wants to leave Mzansi for good.
“He’s been terrorising her since she got to South Africa. She’s bankrupt and spent all her money on legal costs.”
Schneider said Kaizer Jnr wanted to see Katharine homeless.
“On top of everything else he wants to see her on the streets, andShe’s also been getting threatening calls,” he said.
