Correctional Services said that “matters are under control” at Johannesburg’s Sun City Prison on Wed.
When Mapaseka Mokgosi, from Kuruman, met Sthembiso Mkhize, a Johannesburg doctor and ex-husband of Destiny owner Khanyi Dlomo, last year, she thought her dream had come true.
Mokgosi, 25, had just qualified as an optometrist when she met the person she thought would be the love of her life.
Fresh out of university Mokgosi was looking for a job and her dashing man came through for her.
Mkhize, 47, bought the dress that Mokgosi wore to her graduation. He even promised to help her get a job. Things were rosy until Mokgosi told Mkhize she was pregnant.
He would have none of that, she says.
"He said he loved my figure and my breasts would drop and I would not be as attractive if I kept the baby," Mokgosi says.
Mkhize allegedly suggested an abortion.
"I didn't want to do that," she says.
Mkhize allegedly booked a sonar scan for Mokgosi.
"But I discovered it was at an abortion clinic. That was when my aunts told me to leave my job in Johannesburg and come back home," she said.
Mkhize, she says, became a stranger.
"When I called him he told me to leave him alone and to tell my aunts to teach me how to treat men."
Mokgosi says Mkhize never asked what they would name the child. The last straw was when he asked for a paternity test after learning the baby had been born.
"How could he ask for an abortion and then for a paternity test?" asked Brenda Lekgetho, Mokgosi's aunt.
Lekgetho said she was angry with Mkhize because he did not show up for the paternity test appointment last Thursday.
But Mkhize said he knew nothing aboutthe abortion he was alleged to have suggested. He said he needed a paternity test because Mokgosi was unfaithful during their time together.
"I have other children and I never needed to go for a test with their mothers. It is because of the nature of our relationship that I need a test with this one."
