The local Musician Mandla “Mampintsha” Maphumulo has been granted bail of R2 000 in the Pinetown Magistrate’s Court.
Maphumulo was arrested on Tuesday afternoon after a video of him launching a physical attack on his partner, Gqom artist Bongekile “Babes Wodumo” Simelane went viral in the early hours of Monday morning.
He has been instructed by the court to have no contact with Simelane. The State has further revealed that the gqom artist has been moved to a different location since the incident.
Maphumulo appeared in court on Tuesday with an apparent injury to his right foot. He was told not to communicate with Simelane.
He has also laid a counter-charge of assault against Simelane.
The State proposed May 15 as the next court date.
This is a breaking story.
