Ajax Cape Town striker Tendai Ndoro has reportedly been released from jail on bail after being accused of allegedly assaulting his wife Thando. 

The Zimbabwe international, who married Thando last December, was arrested for allegedly strangling his wife at their home in Boksburg last week, which saw him spending the weekend in jail.

According to SowetanLive, National Prosecuting Authority spokeswoman Phindi Mjonondwane stated that Ndoro is facing a charge of assault with intent to cause grievous bodily harm

Speaking to the publication, Thando revealed details of her alleged fight with Tendai, who has allegedly been assaulting his wife.

"He started changing around March this year. He would always get calls from girls here and there but it's nothing I took seriously," Thando said. 

"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 continued.

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

Thando also disclosed that the former Orlando Pirates marksman had allegedly lost his temper at a family meeting which he had called.

"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,” she concluded. 

Tendai, who previously turned out for Saudi Arabian side Al Faisaly, was arrested on Saturday and he spent the weekend in jail at the Boksburg police station where Thando opened a case of domestic violence. 

On Monday, the Boksburg Magistrate's Court granted Tendai R1000 bail and the case has been postponed until later this month.

Tendai’s lawyer Tshepo Moshoeshoe said his client "was doing OK.

“I have forwarded your message [requesting a comment] to my client for his approval and instructions relating to your questions. I haven't gotten responses from him,” he concluded.
