The details about allegations of sex starvation emerged during a recent assault case which was opened by Sylvia, Maponyane’s wife, at the Midrand police station last month.
The case also left Maponyane fuming and he allegedly accused police officers at the station of arresting him so they could sleep with his wife while he was in custody.
Midrand police station commander Leshoka Mahloromela confirmed receiving a report from one of his officers who arrested Maponyane.
The officer alleged that Maponyane accused them of sleeping with his wife.
Mahloromela said the officers made the allegations in a report that also details allegations of interference by a high-ranking police official to get the case squashed.
The station boss said his officer said Maponyane spoke in Setswana and said: “Ke a tseba gore le nyaka go nyoba mosadi waka, that’s why le nyaka go ntshwara gore ke robale diseleng weekend ka moka.”
The alleged statement by Maponyane, loosely translated, means “I know you want to sleep with my wife, that is why you want me to sleep in the police cells all weekend.”
