Songstress Busisiwe Twala, known as Cici, is expected to appear in the Midrand Magistrate’s Court on Thursday, facing counter charges of assault, laid against her by her ex-boyfriend Arthur Mafokate.
Twala and the Kwaito star have been embroiled in a court battle after she laid assault charges against him following an alleged violent altercation. Mafokate in turn laid charges against her.
On Wednesday, 90s Kwaito star, Mafokate’s attempts to get his assault charge resolved through mediation proved futile and he briefly appeared in the Midrand Magistrate’s Court. He is accused of allegedly physically abusing Twala.
His legal representative asked for a postponement for a possible representation to the Director of Public Prosecutions. This comes after Twala refused mediation.
In June, Mafokate appeared in the same court on a charge of common assault and was released on R500 bail.
According to reports, in June Twala opened a case against Mafokate, whom she called “my boyfriend” in a police statement after he allegedly dragged her in the street with his car during an argument.
The local stars have reportedly laid charges against each other. Mafokate’s legal team wants to mediate out of court, but Cici wants the matter handled in court.
Mafokate has denied any wrongdoing.
