- Muvhango actor, Dingaan Mokebe ka Khumalo, has been arrested
- He is accused of getting physically violent with a woman during a road rage incident
- The actor, however, claims it was the woman who got violent with him
Popular actor, Dingaan Mokebe ka Khumalo, famous for his role as James in Muvhango, is accused of punching a woman in the face several times.
However, the actor has opened a counter-case against the woman, Chaan Botha, and says she was the one who got violent with him. She hasn't been arrested yet.
SowetanLIVE reports that the actor has allegedly called Botha a 'white b***h who deserves to be raped'.
This all occurred during an incident on the Xavier Road off-ramp along Joburg's N1 highway in what appears to have been a case of road rage.
Mokebe was arrested the day after the incident at his home in Alberton.
Sunday World claims to have seen a police report that indicates the actor was driving his BMW along Xavier Road when Botha wanted to cross into his lane.
He apparently ignored her and she started insulting him and called him the k-word.
Part of the statement read:
"The woman who was driving the Dodge climbed out of her vehicle and slapped the left side of his cheek and he didn't fight back."
Botha, however, says she was driving from the N1 off-ramp onto Xavier Road when the actor drove past without giving her a chance to turn into the right-hand lane. She says he gave her two middle fingers as he went past.
She threw her hands in the air and asked what was happening and this is when he allegedly cut in front of her and blocked her car.
According to her, he got out of his own car and started punching her windows, all while screaming at her to get out of her car or open her windows.
She further says she started to cry and when she finally got out of her car, the actor punched her several times in the face.
He then allegedly told her he was going to get a weapon from his car, which she has shown in pictures is a crowbar.
Briefly.co.za gathered that Botha is surprised that a case was actually opened against her.
Mokebe says he's not letting this case go.
"I'm taking this matter to the Human Rights Commission because white women cannot go around calling people k*****s and then go to the police and lie that they were violated because they know that the law is on their side."
Muvhango has not commented on the accusations yet, according to People magazine.
