Millicent Kgwale accuses Matlala of conning her
However, his excitement did not last for long as last year, Kgwale, a Tswane businesswoman, came out accusing Mr. Matlala of conning her out of R135000. He allegedly used the money to pay Labola for Lebohang Mabe. Mrs. Millicent Kgwale told the police that the businessman came and requested her to partner with him in a multi-million fiber optic cables installation.
"Just after I paid the money, I saw social media abuzz with Nico's lobola news. She said.
The lady was mainly angered by the fact that the money she gave out had been acquired through a bank loan.
"Nico Matlala's wife is my wife. The money he used to pay for Lobola for her is my money. So Nico must stop going around saying he has a wife," Kgwale raged.
Was the Lobola really paid out for Mabe? Yes, it was, but in a comment, her uncle said that his niece's Lobola was not well arranged as it should have been.
"We charged Matlala R120000, and he paid only R35000, said Jaftha.
Unfortunately for Nico Matlala and Lebohang Mabe, this marriage did not last. Mr. Jeftha claims that immediately people learned about the Lobola downpayment, they started calling Mabe expressing their concerns about Nico’s dubious business practices.
"He conned people for a living. My niece bought him data, paid the helper, and bought groceries in that house," said Jefta.
When he was reached for a comment, Nico, trashed the reports, saying that he never conned Millicent out of any money and instead, the lady was the one wanted things to work out faster than they had anticipated.
The project was there, and it is just that Millicent was impatient and wanted money quickly. He said
The businessman claims that on receiving her complaints, he swiftly refunded back her money and continued with the project alone.
As for Lebohang's family, I will expose them and Lebohang," said Matlala.
Sometimes before they broke up, Mabe’s red BMW car (given by Matlala) was impounded by someone with the help of the police. On further investigation, the poor girl discovered that Nico had used fraudulent ways to get the car.
"The owner, whom Nico conned, came with the police to seize the car. That is when I knew Lebo had to come back home," said uncle Jaftha.
Confrontation with the No Excuse Pay Papgeld crew
The Celebrity Cassanova was once accused of failing to provide towards the upkeep of a child that he had with a woman from Gauteng. Desperately, the woman turned to the TV show No Excuse Pay Papgeld for redress. The TV crew took a whole six months to trace him, and when confronted about the child maintenance dispute, he vehemently denied ever siring the child with the woman.
According to the TV crew, he admitted having had an affair with the woman but insisted on a paternity test to be conducted before taking any responsibility.
On her side, the woman claimed that she first met the guy while commuting to Kempton by taxi, and that is how they ended up getting together.
"After three weeks, I visited my aunt in Limpopo, and I suspected I was pregnant. "I went to a doctor, and the results came back positive.
She claimed that several attempts to contact him proved futile since Nico would not pick her phone calls.
