Pictures of Skeem Saam actress Amanda du-Pont, dressed in all black and with armed bodyguards by her side, have raised questions on social media. According to the rumour mill, they are linked to her rumoured boyfriend and taxi boss, Bafana Sindane.


At the weekend, Du-Pont – who is also a model – attended a funeral. But what was eyebrow-raising for netizens on X, was seeing that the actress now has bodyguards as she has never been seen with security in public before.

According to gossip blogger, Sanele Nkosi, the media personality attended the funeral of Sindane’s family member.

In more pictures, Sindane can be seen at the same funeral. Additionally, a video showing Du-Pont at the funeral also shows other celebrities such as DJ Zinhle.


Rumours of the Shadow actress’s romantic relationship with Sindane are not new. Last year, murder-accused and controversial gossip commentator, Musa Kahawula, broke the news about the alleged romance.

In addition to this, Sunday World reported that Du-Pont and the businessman were living their best lives in Paris, France – where they were guests at multi-millionaire Dr Sisa Ngebulana’s wedding to Ayanda Ngebulana in June last year.

At the time, Du-Pont took to her Instagram page to post and quickly delete a video of a luxury Maserati vehicle which she was traveling in – the same car Sindane posted on his Instagram page on the same day.

“There has been rumors that she went there as his plus-one. We just don’t know if this means they are more than just friends, but them being there together speaks volumes,” a friend told the publication.


Sindane is a KwaZulu-Natal-born businessman, who is in the taxi industry.

Sunday World reported last year that he is a member of the Presidential Cartel or the Hockey Club – which is known for a controversial lifestyle associated with secret parties and blessers culture.

The millionaire taxi boss made headlines in 2014 for his R1.7 million wedding extravaganza to Ouma Mdhluli in Kwaggafontein, Mpumalanga – SowetanLIVE reported. The outlet reported that Sindane pulled out all the stops for his A-list dream wedding with 30 000 roses flown in from Kenya and 10 000 orchids from Holland. Du-Pont was also in attendance.

Last year, Sindane was linked to DJ and radio host, Lerato Kganyago, as rumours of an affair between them were rife. However, the Metro FM presenter quickly rubbished the claims.

Du-Pont has previously dated rapper and Uyajola 9/9 host Molemo “Jub Jub” Maarohanye. Unfortunately, their relationship ended badly, as the actress accused the musician of rape and attempted murder which allegedly took place from 2007. In 2022, Du-Pont opened a case against Jub Jub.

The TV personality has also been married. In January this year, TshisaLIVE reported that she and her ex-husband, Shawn Rodriques, finalised their divorce after three years of marriage.
