A former Jomo Cosmos striker allegedly crashed his car during a domestic violence incident with his wife on Thursday.

The Malawian soccer player, whose name is known to The Star, was reportedly arguing with his wife as he was leaving their complex in Laser Park, Roodepoort.

It is believed that he accused her of cheating on him with a Kaizer Chiefs defender in 2010. His wife opened the car door and grabbed the steering wheel to try to stop him from leaving, when the open door hit a tree and knocked her over.

The footballer made a U-turn, drove back to where his wife was lying on the ground and allegedly kicked her before driving off. He returned later and the two had a row in the house. He then got in his car and tried to speed off, but lost control and crashed into the wall of another complex.
