Warrants of arrest have been issued for gqom singer Babes Wodumo and Mandla “Mampintsha” Maphumulo after the couple failed to show up at the Pinetown Magistrate’s Court in Durban earlier today (Tuesday, 9 July).
The controversial couple were expected in court today after attending mediation classes. This follows the assault charge that Babes had filed against Mampintsha in March.
According to TshisaLive, Mampintsha’s lawyer, Pat Magwaza, said he has no idea where the pair were, and that he had tried to track them down but to no avail.
“I was told that they were at their house, but when I went to look for them, I couldn’t find them,” said Magwaza.
Even journalists are tweeting about this. See post below:
The state prosecutor, Ndoda January, told the court that he had heard Babes Wodumo and Mampintsha had completed their mediation with FAMSA but had no written confirmation of this.
Mampintsha handed himself over to police in March after Babes filed a case of assault against him. This follows a live viral video which was posted on her Instagram revealing a man slapping her around.
This is Babes' second warrant of arrest in just a few months. She failed to appear in the Durban Magistrate’s Court on a separate assault charge in April.
Less than a week ago, Briefly.co.za reported that Babes Wodumo and Mampintsha Shimora finally poured their hearts out in their first joint interview since 'that' video of Mampintsha allegedly slapping Babes went viral a few months ago.
They had an exclusive interview with Ukhozi FM’s Lady D in which they spoke out about their music and how they work better as a team.
They were rather jolly and preferred not to go into any details about what had happened between them or about what is currently happening with them relationship-wise.
