Cape Town – The Elton Jantjies saga is reluctant to come to an end, as it was reignited by Jantjies refuting Zeenat Simjee’s claims that it was not her who had been spotted with Jantjies at the resort in Argentina.
Jantjies once more admitted that it was Zeenat with whom he had an affair, telling Rapport that it was not a case of “mistaken identity”, as Simjee claimed.
“As I confirmed to my wife, I did have a relationship with Zee. There is only one Zee,” Jantjies was reported as saying.
This comes after Simjee denied that it was she who had the affair with the South African fly-half, claiming that it was a person who looked similar to her.
Netwerk24 reported that Simjee’s lawyer, Frikkie Erasmus, proposed that the issue had been caused by a case of mistaken identity and that it was not Simjee who was spotted at the guesthouse with Jantjies.
Erasmus was also reported to have said that he and his client knew the identity of the woman who did have the affair with Jantjies, but chose not to identify her.
Simjee’s lawyer was adamant that Simjee did not have the affair with Jantjies, saying her “denial is well recorded”.
It was Jantjies who first admitted to the alleged affair he and Simjee had. In an exclusive interview with News24, Jantjies admitted that the affair had been going on for several months.
He reportedly confessed his actions in an interview before boarding his flight to Cyprus, where his wife and kids have travelled to.
Jantjies is currently in Cyprus with his wife, Iva Ristic, and their three children.
