Zoe Mthiyane got tongues wagging after her open letter to Robert Marawa was published on Facebook recently. Zoe, who has a son with the sports presenter, alleged that Robert had neglected his responsibility as a father.
“I hereby declare that you have used the perception of your public figure personality and power to relinquish your responsibility to your only son, believing that my son and I will remain forever your victims, while you have been his absent biological father ...by your own choice,” read a line from the letter.
Zoe even tweeted Robert on Thursday. She wrote: “@robertmarawa - I am ‘disgruntled’ another man is paying your child's medical needs, clothing, housing and food.” Ouch!

Speaking on these allegations, Robert told Sowetan: “All I've ever wanted is access to my child as the biological father. I'm not interested in her convenient lies.”
He added: "My lawyers are dealing with the issue of access to my child and not disgruntled attempts to discredit me. I can't respond to a letter that's directed at the media and not me”.
