The 33-year-old athlete who is also the African long jump record holder opened up about how he blew R84 million in less than 4 years.

Manyonga spent his money on expensive cars, women and drugs. That was after he renovated his parents’ house in Paarl, Western Cape, and took care of his family and some of his community members’ needs.

“The cars he rented cost R20 000 per day. On top of that he would pay R100 000 for insurance because he’d return them wrecked the next day.

According to his best friend and uncle, Sphelele Kwaza, they sent close to R400 000 on accommodation at a hotel for a month where they partied up a storm. His sister, Vuyiseka Manyonga, added that the athlete had his own personal drug dealer.

Manyonga is hoping to get a new lease in life when his ban ends in December this year
