The Throne actor, Peter Mashigo, was caught on camera getting physically abusive with his girlfriend, Ndundu Sithole. The couple seemingly had a heated argument before things escalated.
A video is reported to have surfaced that shows how actor Peter Mashigo got into a physical confrontation with his bae, Ndundu Sithole, a news editor at SABC.
The video is only 16 seconds long and shows Peter and Ndundu arguing before she slaps him. Peter then pursues Ndundu and catches up to her and then proceeds to kick her, according to a report by The Sowetan.
The report indicates that the fight came after Peter was caught cheating on Ndundu, apparently with a younger student.
Ndundu feels humiliated after the incident, which took place in front of students.
"I'm not OK. I'm sitting at home bruised. My whole body is sore. I don't know what to do. I was beaten yesterday in front of students in broad daylight.
"People couldn't help as I was choked and kicked like a dog. All because I caught him cheating."
Peter admitted to getting physical with Ndundu but denied that things happened the way she says.
According to the actor, they broke up months ago, and the fight happened when he dropped off his new girlfriend. He accuses Ndundu of attacking the woman and he intervened.
"What you see in the clip was me trying to stop her on the side after so many failed attempts. It's wrong, but I lost my temper when she slapped me and I hit her back.
"Afterwards she continued and threatened to stone my car, with people around trying to stop her. I drove off."
Peter has since apologised on social media for his actions.
Briefly.co.za gathered that Peter also denies saying that Ndundu is 'wild and violent', as he says journalists claimed.
"I did not say those things the Sowetan journalist said I mentioned about @ndundus being violent and wild. It’s all lies. We are being played against each other. She has never hit me before until the altercation. Ndundu is a good woman she lives with my daughter and grandson."
It is reported that Ndundu has not opened a case with the police yet.
After what happened to Babes Wodumo, this video clip might cause an uproar in South Africa.
