Mampintsha has been arrested for assaulting his girlfriend, Bongekile Simelane, popularly known as Babes Wodumo. The police confirmed the arrest earlier today. However, Mampintsha is laying a counter-charge against Babes, saying that he struck her in self-defence.
Mzansi has been reeling since the video of Mampintsha physically abusing Babes Wodumo went viral. He was formally charged with assault after Babes laid charges against him at the Westville police station. The disgraced Kwaito star then went on the run until he was apprehended by police.
His lawyer, Pat Magwaza, told eNCA that the former Big Nuz musician has opened a case of assault against Babes Wodumo, claiming that he hit her in self-defence.
Briefly.co.za previously reported that Babes Wodumo’s family held a press conference earlier today and told the media that Babes has been hospitalised since the incident took place. They did not elaborate any further on the details of her condition.
