Warriors striker Tendai Ndoro spent the weekend behind bars in South Africa for allegedly assaulting his wife Thando.
According to media reports, the Ajax Cape Town player was arrested on Saturday and appeared at the Boksburg magistrate’s court on Monday, charged with assault.
He was granted R1 000 bail and the matter was postponed until later this month. Sowetan newspaper yesterday reported that the striker was arrested following a “nasty” fight with his wife of six months at their home in Boksburg on Tuesday last week.
He allegedly strangled the complainant Thando, before throwing a TV set at her, which she managed to dodge.
The newspaper quoted National Prosecuting Authority spokeswoman Phindi Mjonondwane who confirmed that Ndoro is facing a charge of assault with intent to cause grievous bodily harm.
Thando also confirmed that she opened a case against her husband, whom she wedded in December after he allegedly tried to choke her following a dispute over car keys. She said she had suffered enough humiliation from Ndoro, who she also accused of infidelity.
