The allegations were made by his estranged ex-wife Marita Peresu Ndlovu. She claimed Mahachi tortured her child with the assistance of his current wife Rose Mahachi.

According to reports Mahachi had requested in February for boy visits in him South Africa for a while and his mother agreed. But, it got to a stage where she couldn't get hold of Mahachi. Apparently he had blocked her and his current wife who was sweet turned against her.

She suspected that something was wrong. She tried calling Rose and she got hold of her grandmother who told her that her son was back in the country and she was in Cowdray park. She told her to come and see her soon swiftly and when she got there, she found her son heavily bandaged with head injuries.

Images of the boy's injuries have been circulating on social media and they are very disturbing. Mahachi has denied the claims and he has shifted the blame on his sisters.

The soccer star has lawyered up against Marita and it does not look good. In a lawsuit statement published by iHarare, Tanaka Law Chambers who are representing Mahachi, have instructed Marita to "Retract all the false information she has supplied to the media outlets about their client within 24 hours of receiving the letter."

She has also been instructed to publish a public apology and circulate it across the media platform she used to make the allegations.

"If the above demands are not met within the prescribed timelines above, we have strict instructions to sue you for damages for defamation, pain and suffering and so we estimated them to be in the tune of 55 million Zimbabwean Dollars without any further notice to yourself.

And should you comply with the above we advise that our client will still reverse the rights to take any further appropriate actions," read part of the lawsuit.

They say the allegations have affected Mahachi severely and they have tarnished his reputation. Furthermore he fears for his life now.

"Our client has lived in fear of his life in that your story has caused him to be attacked on social media platforms and as such he has been off social media as a result of your unfortunate rants and revs about our client being abusive towards his only son,” further read the letter.
