Ajax Cape Town striker Tendai Ndoro is out on R1000 bail after appearing in court for allegedly assaulting his wife.

The former Orlando Pirates and Black Aces striker was arrested on Saturday and spent the weekend in jail.

Ndoro is accused of assaulting his wife at their Boksburg home over the weekend.

Speaking to The Sowetan outside the Boksburg Magistrate’s Court where Ndoro appeared, Thando, confirmed that she opened a case against her husband after he allegedly tried to choke her.

“He started changing around March this year. He would always get calls from girls here and there but it’s nothing I took seriously,” she said.

She added that Tuesday’s fight was over car keys.

“He wanted the car keys and I didn’t give him because I was supposed to drop my son off at school.”

“He pinned me on the bed and strangled me while he searched for the keys. He then picked up a TV and threw it at me but I managed to dodge it and it hit the wall,” she said.

“I called the police but they advised me not to open a case yet and talk things through with my husband.”

Thando said Ndoro called a family meeting, where he again lost his temper.

“He tried to make me sign documents stating that I was not his legal wife as we are only married traditionally. I refused to sign those documents and he lost his mind and threw a bottle of juice, which broke against the wall and pieces of broken glass hit some people in the room.”
