The association, which is registered as a non-profit company (NPC), dragged Jali to the Joburg high court last week after he defaulted on the payment of levies for the posh property he bought in their estate in 2016.
According to the court documents, Jali signed a memorandum of incorporation in which he undertook to timeously pay the levies after buying the property.
But he breached the terms and conditions of the memorandum of incorporation when he defaulted on payments.
As a result of Jali’s tardiness, he was over R123 000 in arrears.
The arrears exclude over R46 000, for which the association obtained an order and judgment against him at the Pretoria Central magistrate’s court on August 28 last year.
The association said it had, through its lawyers, sent several letters of demand to Jali but the controversial footie showed them the middle finger.
A source close to the matter told the Sunday World that Jali’s failure to pay the levies could not be attributed to his current club Moroka Swallows FC’s financial troubles.

Swallows have been facing financial troubles of late and they failed to honour two fixtures in December against Golden Arrows and Mamelodi Sundowns.
Leading to the Premier Soccer League (PSL) Disciplinary Committee fining them an amount of R1 million of which R600,000 was suspended for a period of 24 months on condition that during the period of suspension, they’re not found guilty of the same offence.
“As you can see, he joined Swallows last year in 2023 but the default judgment for over R46 000 was obtained in August last year, just a month after joining the club.
“So the boy has been defaulting and not properly managing his finances before joining the club,” the source said.
Meanwhile, Jali has reportedly not returned to the Swallows training grounds as he is busy fighting the club over salaries owed to him by the club.
