Her husband worked for Wandrag Asbestos Mining Company in the Northern Cape for six months before he lost his employment due to ill health, she said.
According to Kesekalemang, the asbestos class action was settled out of court and the asbestos mines paid out a contribution of R460m to the victims of this occupational disease.
"As we speak, I am left with newspaper cuttings medical reports with no compensation," she said.
However, Spoor said he is not indebted to Kesekalemang as she claimed.
He confirmed that his law firm acted for Manchonyane about 15 to 20 years ago.
He also confirmed that he had an asbestos related disease (mesothelioma) caused by exposure to asbestos, while employed at the Wandrag asbestos mine in the Northern Cape.
Spoor said Wandrag itself had closed and deregistered many years before.
"We issued summons on Manchonyane's behalf against its parent company Duiker Mining and he died in the course of the litigation," Spoor said.
He said he has not dealt with Manchonyane's case for the past 15 years.
