The pressure on Mampintsha increases as the ruling party and opposition unite to call for his arrest following the posting of a video showing him physically abusing girlfriend Babes Wodumo.
The Economic Freedom Fighters has condemned the actions of the Kwaito star and the organisation is calling for his arrest.
In a statement EFF spokesperson Mbuyiseni Ndlozi said:
"The actions of Mampintsha are repulsive and disgusting. This happens before Friday 8 March where women around the world will be commemorating International Women's Day which is a focal point for women's rights.”
The EFF has called for South Africans to do a public arrest of Mampintsha when they see him and take him to a police station.
The ANC in Gauteng has also expressed outrage over the violence:
"We urge Babes Wodumo to lay charges against her abuser,” said Tasneem Motara.
DA leader Mmusi Maimane has also called for criminal charges to be a laid against Mampintsha.
This call for his arrest follows the call from several of Mzansi’s public figures who are standing together to call for the arrest of Mampintsha. Briefly.co.za previously reported that celebrities have taken to social media to call for his arrest. Boity Thulo, DJ Zinhle, Amanda Black and many others are calling for the arrest of Mampintsha.
