Arthur Mafokate returns to court for assault charges against his ex

Mzansi Kwaito legend, Arthur Mafokate's drawn-out case against his ex-girlfriend, Busisiwe “Cici” Twala, took a twist in events in court this week, when the former 999 producer made his latest appearance in court.

The trial was postponed back in March after court recording machines broke. Arthur was summoned back to the Midrand Magistrate’s Court this week.

According to ZAlebs, reports in the online edition of Drum Magazine revealed that Arthur was in “high spirits” as he watched lawyers cross-examining Dr Ramokgopa, who had treated Cici’s injuries after the alleged assault.

Dr Ramokgopa confirmed the injuries that Cici had sustained to her pelvic region. He said: “She was swollen in the same area, her limb was affected but the rest of her body parts were fine.”

Cici had previously stated that the injuries she has sustained at Arthur’s hands were so bad that she would no longer be able to bear children.

But the doctor refuted the claim, revealing that Cici would be able to have kids and engage in sexual intercourse now that she had fully healed.

Arthur and his legal team were unable to draft a firm response in time, so they pleaded that the judge postpone the case until August, so they could return with a counterargument of their own.

Even though the injuries are not what they were made out to be, Arthur is still not off the hook just yet, and could face the might of the law should he be found guilty of the alleged assault against his ex-girlfriend.

About two weeks ago, Briefly.co.za reported that Arthur Mafokate is not only known for his irrefutable contribution to Kwaito music in South Africa, but also for being a wonderful dad to his four children.

The Mzansi celeb attended the South African Music Awards (SAMAs) recently and was lucky enough to take his two oldest children, Owami and Arthur Jr., with him to the event.

Mzansi’s social media users are used to seeing Arthur post many cute photos of his kids, but no one had ever seen Owami and Arthur Jr. both looking so dapper and grown up.

The two looked amazing in matching shades of cream, with Owami rocking a gorgeous gown with a detailed lace front.
