ATANDWA KANI saw both his beloved kids being born.
Later, he fought his baby mama for custody . . .
AND FOUND OUT HE’S NOT THE FATHER!
And now the young actor is in shock, with no claim to the children he was bringing up with love.
Meanwhile, Tembisa Madoda, the baby mama who betrayed him, is ready to start a new career!
Tonight, Tembisa Madoda will be revealed as the new presenter of Our Perfect Wedding on Mzansi Magic.
The drama began with a custody battle between Atandwa and his ex-girlfriend. It reached a climax in early November as the former couple and the kids went for a paternity test at Lancet Laboratories in Joburg.
Sunday Sun is in possession of the test results which show that Atandwa is not the father of Tembisa’s kids.
A Sunday Sun source said: “When Tembisa took him to court for papgeld, he wanted to take the kids from her. And that battle led to paternity tests.
“The results confirmed Atandwa’s fears that Tembisa had been cheating on him all along. But he never imagined someone else could have fathered the children he loved so much.
“He had been there for the kids.”
When called for comment, Atandwa confirmed the news.
He said: “I was dumbfounded. I can’t describe the feeling I had when the sad news was delivered to me.
“I’ve been there for the kids since day one. I was even there in theatre when they were born!”
Atandwa went on: “I invested a lot – emotionally, financially and otherwise.
“All I wanted was to be the father of those kids. And I still struggle to accept the results.
“I asked my family for advice. I met with my dad, mum and siblings to discuss it.”
Atandwa’s father is the legendary South African actor John Kani.
And now the heartbroken younger Kani is consulting family elders and uncles about his next step.
He told the SunTeam: “It’s a situation that one can’t just walk away from. I’ve been praying a lot about it.”
When the People’s Paper called Tembisa, she refused to comment and referred enquiries to her spokesperson, John Dludlu.
He did not reply to our questions at the time of going to print.
