Parental DNA results clear Orlando Pirates captain

Orlando Pirates and Bafana Bafana star, Oupa “Ace” Manyisa is not the father, that’s according to a DNA test done at a Johannesburg pathology lab.

This means the highly anticipated DNA results clears the 26-year-old midfielder of fathering a child with Thato Makgaka (21).

A DNA paternity test is used to determine whether or not a particular man is the biological father of a child.

Oupa’s lawyer says the latest development clears his client of any suggestions of infidelity.

“From the onset my client denied being the alleged father of Ms Makgaka’s child and official paternity tests now confirm that my client is not the biological father,” says Oupa’s lawyer, John Wilson.

DRUM’s numerous attempts to reach Thato were unsuccessful. But a source close to her revealed that she wasn’t surprised and actually saw it coming.

Another source who spoke to DRUM says that the former Miss Soweto teen had planned to have the DNA tests done at the Johannesburg maintenance court fearing that the Pirates star would manipulate the paternity test should she use practitioners of their choice. “Apart from the pressure she had from his lawyer and her family, Oupa’s lawyer convinced her that going to their people would be faster and will avoid public attention,” she says.

All along Oupa denied fathering a child out of wedlock and challenged her to a public DNA test. Oupa is married to Johanna Louw.

He was quoted in Sunday papers saying: “I want to do DNA tests publicly. That girl is ruining my life with her lies. I don’t have a child with her and she should stop spreading lies that I’m the father of her baby.”

A month ago, Thato wrote a teary open letter to Oupa in response to his claims to not being the father of three-month-old Kganya, also called Oupa Junior.
