Entertainment couple Nandi Madida and Zakhele Madida famously known as Zakes Bantwini have decided to dissolve their marriage contract. This according to Sunday World who reports that the couple are seeking legal grounds to remove Nandi Madida from their joint estates. 

The multi-million rand properties include an estate in Morningside, KwaZulu-Natal which costs R3.5 million and another in Thornhill, Modderfontein, Gauteng. These are allegedly owned by Zakes Bantwini. The publication reports that Nandi does not own any assets.

Last week the couple applied for a petition to dissolve their marriage at the Johannesburg High Court. This is according to Zakes' affidavit, which states that there was some misunderstanding between them and their marriage officer. Which resulted in them mistakenly getting married without a prenuptial agreement, which automatically landed them in community of marriage. 

These were not their intentions, as they had planned to be married out of community of property. They got married on June 8 2016 in Pinetwon and have 2 beautiful children.

Sunday World wrote that they saw the contents of Zakes Bantwini's affidavit which pleads with the courts to agree to change their marriage contracts. The musician says they both wanted to get married without the use of an accrual system. The couple discovered this when they were discussing their personal finances. 

"As a result of (a) misunderstanding between ourselves and the marriage officer, who conducted the marriage ceremony, we understood incorrectly as it now appears that he would be in position to ensure that our marriage would be out of community of property without the application of the accrual system.

"At all material times, it was the intention of the second applicant and myself to be married out of community of property without application of the accrual system," his affidavit stated.

Zakes continues his plea by adding that he and his wife Nandi would enter into a post-nuptial notarial contract instead of the accrual system. This is because they both have very successful careers and get paid separately.
