Phindi Mjonondwane - spokesperson for National Prosecuting Authority for south Gauteng - confirmed that the warrant was issued on the 24th of May. The warrant is based on Khoza's failure to attend a maintenance court hearing.

Khoza's public relations manager - Justine Abrahams - stated that Khoza has not been notified of the warrant.


Abrahams added that an attorney will handle the matter on Khoza's behalf.

The mother of the child wishes to remain anonymous to protect her son from unwanted attention.

She stated that Khuzo was ordered by the Randburg Magistrate Court to pay an amount of R6900 in maintenance for his son.

Apparently Khoza paid at first, but then simply stopped and hasn't paid for six months.


The mother added that she didn't report him to be mean, she only wants Khoza to do what is right by his son. In fact, she wants nothing to do with the actor. She earns her own money and doesn't need any from Khoza.

But she believes that her money shouldn't stop Khoza from taking care of his child.

Khoza is reportedly in a lot of debt and he claims that the producers of The Queen isn't paying him.

Followers of the show weren't too happy with the news:

Paper Tiger - Condoms cost R15.
Popeye Street - your son baba. I fail to understand your real reason for not supporting the child...

Khoza was unavailable to comment on the matter.
