Mamelodi Sundowns coach Manqoba Mgqithi has responded to the damaging claims his daughter made against him on social media.
The soccer coach’s daughter, Asavela Mngqithi, claimed her dad was an absent father.
The former Isibaya actress alleged that Mngqithi is a deadbeat dad, claiming that he wasn’t there during her childhood.
She was responding to peeps who claimed her father played a role towards her success.
Hitting back, Mngqithi told Daily Sun that he’s aware of the claims Asavela made against him.
ZAlebs reports that Mngqithi shared that there’s no truth to the claims. He said Asavela is her first daughter from a previous relationship.
He added that he took care of her from day one and even paid damages to her mom’s family, adding that he also lived with her when she was a teenager.
The popular coach further revealed that he paid for her school fees from primary until tertiary. Asavela recently changed her surname to Mqokiyana after her hubby paid lobola to her family.
Mngqithi shared that he doesn’t even know who took her lobola and doesn’t even know her hubby.
He added that problems between them started when she started working.
