Sello Maake Ka Ncube challenged his ex-wife’s legal bill saying that the costs and expenses were not reasonably incurred.

Part of his court papers read,

“Although it may be found that all expenses were reasonably and properly incurred, the quantum for such accounts and documents were not reasonable, and the taxing master should have the opportunity to call such accounts and documents as he/she may think necessary in order to decide the reasonableness thereof. Take further notice that the plaintiff’s objections are attached hereto.”


In response, Palesa’s lawyers dragged him to Johannesburg Regional Court on July 29 to force him to pay up.

However, the court agreed with the veteran actor and ruled in his favour. The judge slashed the R123 000 bill to just R7 000. The court also said that Sello Maake ka Ncube and his ex-wife should split the legal bill meaning that he only needed to pay R3 500.

This, he promptly did.

Speaking to the publication, on his victory over his ex-wife, Sello Maake Ka Ncube said,

“…the taxing master reduced it to R7000. He also said because we’re married in community of property, she should pay 50 percent of the amount. So I immediately paid them R3500.

“I welcome the ruling by the court, and I have paid my 50% of the legal bill.”

The veteran actor called on his ex-wife to move on with her life for the sake of her children.

“I wish Ms Mboweni can move on from this matter and more importantly move on for the sake of her children. In her quest to tarnish my name she is unfortunately doing the same with her own name. I wish her all the best with the rest of her life,” he said.
