By Thys Khiba – Springbok flyhalf Elton Jantjies’ wife Iva Jantjies confirmed she became aware of cheating allegations surrounding her husband after reading a related social media post three times.

National Rugby team took a decision to send him and their dietitian Zeenat Simjee home to “attend to those personal reports and to eliminate any distractions to the team’s preparations for the Test against Argentina.”

This comes after it was alleged that Jantjies and Springboks dietitian Zeenat Simjee are having an affair. 

World Cup-winning Springbok Elton Jantjies was charged with malicious damage to property and appeared in the Kempton Park Magistrate's Court on Monday afternoon.

“We have been together since 2014 and had our ups and downs like every other couple. I have always been there to support him through good and good times, and I still am. When we met, he was not even part of the Bok squad, we worked really hard for him to achieve his goals and dreams. [I] sacrificed so many things, including my career and my dreams,” Iva said. 

Iva indicated that she will still love her Elton as a father of her children even after she discovered that he might be having an affair.

The married have been together for almost a decade. The two are parents of three children.

Meanwhile, she told media she would “probably not” remain romantically involved with him.

In the coming week Jantjies who denied the allegations is expected to return to their home in Japan. 

Last month Jantjies booked himself into a guesthouse outside of the Springboks’ hotel during their stay in Mbombela, sources told media. 

Jantjies is accused of failing to pay the guesthouse R26 000 until the owners complained to the South African Rugby Union (SARU). 

It is reported that he then paid R21 000 before a final R5 000 was paid upon Sunday publication Rapport’s enquiry. 

Jantjies hasn’t instructed his lawyer Nabeela Moola to look into the allegations.

Springboks are expected to face Los Pumas at Estadio Jose Amalfitani in Buenos Aires on Saturday.
