Celebrity casanova and controversial businessman Nico Matlala is once again the subject of allegations of a scam by one of his ex-girlfriends claiming he made off with her hard-earned cash.
The latest alleged victim, Sello Ledwaba, is a banker from Matlala's hometown of Polokwane, Limpopo, but based in Pretoria.
Ledwaba claims that Matlala did not only leave her with a bleeding heart but left her purse with a R140000 hole after he borrowed money from her to use towards his construction business.
"He came to me in 2013 and mentioned that he has a construction company and that he needed the money because he was not paid by his clients. Coming from the same city with me, I didn't go into details, not even to request a copy of the contract.
"I lent him the money before we started dating. But our relationship didn't last long because I discovered more lies from him when I started to demand my money back," she said.
Matlala denied all allegations against him and said he doesn't know Ledwaba.
"If I owed someone money from years ago, why are they only coming out now? Is it because I am famous? Also, you the media, when you want to sell your papers you think of Nico. I will sue you. I have good things that I am doing but you people don't talk about them."
Ledwaba said she was coming out after five years because she had run out of patience withMatlala's empty promises and had also seen how he allegedly conned other women.
"I have been talking to Matlala since 2014 asking him to pay me back, he has been prolonging but now I want my money back," said Ledwaba.
