Platinum Stars midfielder Solomon Mathe was spotted leaving the residence of a professional prostitute this week.
Sunday World was informed of the footie’s nefarious tryst in the bordello by neighbours who disapprove of the hooker’s business on the property.
Mathe, who wedded his long-time girlfriend Sissy Naledi Tenza in 2014, was seen on August 29 visiting the apartment in Winchester Hills, south of Joburg, where a professional prostitute plies her trade.
At the hooker’s apartment, a black Jeep owned by Mathe’s friend Tlali Motsie was parked in the visitors’ parking in the townhouse complex.
After about half an hour, the former SuperSport United player, who was clad in a white T-shirt, blue shorts and brown sneakers, trudged out of the unit and jumped into the car.
He kept a straight face when he passed a group of residents standing with the Sunday World team.
Platinum Stars spokesman Tebogo Mochadibane declined to comment and referred us to the team coach Cavin Johnson.
Mathe begged us not to publish the story. “Grootman please, don’t publish that, this thing will affect my marriage and my career, please.”
The residents complained that the tenant, known to them as Meikie, was selling sex and Mathe was one of her regular Johns.
“There are too many male visitors coming here every day. We investigated and discovered that this woman is selling sex in that unit. We complained to the unit owner who told us her tenant insisted the people who were visiting were her friends,” said a resident who did not want to be named.
Another resident, who also asked not to be named, said they discovered the unit was used as a house of ill-repute early this year when they heard “funny noises” coming from the house whenever there was a male visitor in it.
