Ndlovu’s brother, Marko Dube confirmed the development yesterday thwarting what he said were lies being peddled that Adam’s former wife Duduzile Mpofu had filed a lawsuit against the Ndlovu brothers seeking to inherit the estate.
Duduzile has a daughter with the late Chicken in gaffer, Adam.
“We registered Adam’s estate and we were called to the High Court for a hearing and we chose Peter as the executor,” he said.
“Adam had three children and those are the beneficiaries of the estate.
“Duduzile is a former wife to Adam and they had a child together. So on the day of the hearing she sent her lawyers to represent the child.
“There is no lawsuit we are aware of. As a family what we know is that our issues are going on smoothly. Those are lies.”
Adam separated with Duduzile some years back. Online publications yesterday claimed the woman had taken Peter to court over the estate.
Duduzile’s lawyer Kucaca Phulu of Phulu Ncube Legal Practitioners yesterday refused to comment on the issue although he hinted that the issue of a lawsuit was a lie.
Adam died on December 16 last year, after a tyre burst on the vehicle in which he was travelling in together with his young brother Peter near Victoria Falls Airport, causing the car to veer off the road.
Adam died on admission at Victoria Falls Hospital and Peter was critically injured and spent days in a coma before he recovered. A female passenger Nomqhele Tshili also died on the spot in the accident.
Peter, a former Highlanders, Coventry City, Birmingham, Huddersfield, Sheffield United and Sundowns player was charged for causing the death of the two, but was exonerated by the magistrates court in April.
