“Circumstances are that Ndebele was at home together with his mother (Precious Ndebele) when she revealed to him that Fisher Ndebele is not his biological father.

“This did not go down well with him and he then told his mother that he would commit suicide.”

Banda said on Thursday, Ndebele sent a message to his 20-year-old girlfriend informing her that he wanted to commit suicide after the revelation.
