DADDY AND DAUGHTER CONNIVE TO GET TWO MEN TO SUPPORT ONE CHILD
A Kanye family who tricked two men into financially supporting a child they both believed was theirs has been exposed and shamed.
Tsholofelo Ntshekisang, 26, and her conniving father Kelapepelo Ntshekisang were caught after the young mother’s two lovers, Gaolatlhe Tshireletso and Othusitse Tome became friends on Facebook.
Tshireletso and Tome, to their utter shock and horror discovered as their face book friendship blossomed that they had both posted and claimed Ntshekisang’s one-month-old child as theirs on their respective facebook walls.
This happened after Kelapepelo had reported the pregnancy to both men ‘s families when his daughter was eight months pregnant and demanded damages.
“My family was charged P700 and seven cows,” said Tome.
The P700 was paid and while they were still planning to arrange for the seven cows to be delivered, I stumbled across this disturbing discovery.
There was another man in the picture.
“I saw a picture of my child displayed on another guy’s Facebook wall (Tshireletso).
When I asked I learnt that he too was supposed to be the father and had already paid damages just like me.
“Just how can one child have two fathers?’ Tome asked rhetorically.
Tshireletso on the other hand confronted the mother of the child and she told him right away that he was not the father after all and apologised for the hurt.
In an apologetic text message sent to Tshireletso’s phone she said:
‘Sorry for hurting and disappointing you. Mistakes do happen so I don’t know what to say or how you will take this between us and the relationship.’
But when the two families of Tome and Tshireletso met the Ntshekisang family in Kanye on Saturday July 27th to solve the mystery of the child’s father they were met by an agitated and uncooperative Kelapepelo who refused to be interrogated.
“I cannot discuss this issue with you, before I consult the rest of my family so please back off,” he fired.
“When you came to report the pregnancy you did not bring any of your family members, why now?”
An equally agitated family member from Tome ‘s side retorted.
The old man however stood his ground until he got rid of his unwanted visitors.
There was a new twist to this issue however when The Voice paid the old man a visit on Wednesday.
Unaware that this reporter was part of the Saturday delegation Kelapepelo claimed that Tshireletso and not Tome was the father of the child.
“He accepted it and he has paid damages.
I know nothing about the other boy,” he said in contradiction to his daughter’s claims in a telephone interview that Tome was indeed the real father.
The three families have agreed to meet at the end of August to discuss the child’s paternity.
“Just come for the meeting, the father’s identity will be revealed then,” The old man said as a parting shot.
