JOHANNESBURG – The assault case against kwaito star Arthur Mafokate is expected to resume in the Midrand Magistrate’s Court on Wednesday.
He allegedly physically abused his ex-girlfriend, musician Cici, whose real name is Busisiwe Twala.
In June, Mafokate appeared at the Midrand Magistrates’ Court on a charge of common assault. He was reportedly released on R500 bail and the case was adjourned indefinitely for further investigation.
According to reports, in June Twala opened a case against Mafokate, who she called “my boyfriend” in a police statement after he allegedly dragged her on the street with his car during an argument.
The couple reportedly argued over a phone call he received from another woman.
According to reports, he said that he was not aware she was still holding onto the car when he drove off.
Mafokate’s lawyers asked for the matter to be resolved through mediation.
