Real Housewives of Durban (RHOD) star Nonku Williams finally opened up about her break-up from her ex-partner Dumisani “RD” Ndlazi during the part one of the reunion on 10 May.

Although she answered questions about his rape conviction, she did not want to address allegations that he scammed her.

According to Zimoja, a source has revealed that she is taking RD to the cleaners – which is what she also told RHOD reunion host, Mthokozisi “MaBlerh” Cele, when he asked her about the swindling claims.

“She is hurt both financially and emotionally after what he did to her,” the source told the publication.

The source claimed that Nonku became too trusting too soon. She allegedly claimed that after a month of dating, the couple started doing business together. Nonku reportedly made RD the boss of one of her major companies while she handled business elsewhere. The source also alleged that the mom-of-three even introduced him to her suppliers.

“When you are in a construction business, it is normal to have an account at building warehouse where you can arrange to pay as soon as clients pay back. She also found out that he took building material costing over a million and now she has to pay for it,” the source explained.

In addition, RD is alleged to have taken all the company profits that he was supposed to share with Nonku and continued to build his house in Richard’s Bay.

During the reunion, Nonku admitted to knowing about RD’s rape charges.

The businessman was arrested for rape in 2014, according to an article by the Zululand Observer. A statement by the South African Police Services (SAPS) in 2016 revealed he was sentenced to 10 years in prison.

“He told me he was arrested for rape… he was arrested for five, six months,” she told MaBlerh during the reunion.

When asked why she allowed a man who has a criminal past to meet her teenage daughter, Nothile Ncwane, she said: “I saw somebody. I fell in love with him. I saw a side to him that a lot of people didn’t see.”
