In response to his tweet, Mzansi had wanted to know why he had named Wodumo but not Mampintsha, had he forgotten his name?

Mokoena had quickly come to his own defense, insisting that he was a 'lawmaker' and couldn't do things 'out of anger'. He has since edited his post to include the alleged abuser's name, clearly caving in to pressure.

Briefly.co.za reported earlier that Mampintsha has been arrested after a short but effective manhunt by the authorities. He is expected to appear in court to answer for his actions.
