Cici is not losing hope that her case against Arthur Mafokate will be successful. There have been many delays since Cici opened the case of assault but she's decided not to live her life according to what happens in court.
Singer Busisiwe ‘Cici’ Thwala opened a case of assault against music mogul, Arthur Mafokate, a long time ago; it's been about 9 months and it's been dragging on ever 'ssince.
However, she's not ready to lose heart just yet. Cici won the assault case that Arthur opened against her, and is holding hope that she'll win this case as well.
Since Arthur opened the case, Cici has forgiven him for the alleged abuse and for making untrue statements, as reported the Daily Sun.
The Midrand Magistrate's Court found her not guilty. Arthur apparently only laid the charges in retaliation after she laid charges against him for abuse. The charges were laid after he allegedly dragged her out his vehicle, which left her injured.
But Cici says she's already singing a new tune. She doesn't want what happens in the courtroom to dictate her life, according to TshisaLIVE.
"I'm already singing a new song because I decided not to live my life according to what is happening in court. I live for now and I've decided that whatever happens will happen.
"I can't let that experience take away from the life I'm supposed to live as a human being because it isn't my whole life. It is just a portion. One specific event, a grain of sand on the beach of my life."
The latest development in the case is that it was postponed in March because the recording machines in the court were out of order.
But Cici is doing just fine. She just wants her experience to inspire others to do the right thing.
"I think for me. I don't know, it has just dawned that it had to be me. I had to share my story for me. It's not about revenge, it's really all about principle."
Briefly.co.za gathered that Cici released a music video for her track Uhlalu'kwenza, which touches on the topic of abuse.
For her, the video also symbolises her hope that justice will prevail.
"I wanted to highlight the theme of taking back your power as a woman, feminism and to basically let the perpetrators know that their time is up. It was also just to say, never be afraid to speak out. The many women standing behind me symbolise the many that have gone through what I've gone through and have lived to tell the tale."
