SA musician, Arthur Mafokate was acquitted of all assault charges brought against him by his former girlfriend, Busisiwe “Cici” Thwala at the Midrand magistrates court on Tuesday.
The Kwaito muso’s lawyer, Daniel Nakeng, confirmed the news to TshisaLive. “We can confirm that our client, Arthur Mafokate was yesterday acquitted of the assault charges against him at the Midrand magistrates court.”
This news has been received with a mixed response by South Africans.
While many people are upset that Cici apparently lied, others feel the justice system has disappointed and Arthur shouldn't have been found innocent.
Some people even said they'd not go to the police and sort out the matter themselves.
This justice system is k*k AF, how on planet earth is Arthur Mafokate not guilty for assaulting Cici so bad she had to learn to walk again. HOW IS HE NOT GUILTY? WHAT MORE EVIDENCE DO YOU WANT?
Arthur Mafokate not found guilty has me shocked to my core !!! Wow.
Guys Arthur Mafokate has been acquitted. Justice has been served. He didn't tie Ceece on the car. Let's leave him alone.
Ladies, if your boyfriend/ husband is abusing you, tell your brothers and uncles. They'll sort him out. Look at the Cici and Arthur Mafokate's situation
Haibo guys nathula? We owe @ArthurMafokate an apology!! Let's keep the same energy we had when we vilified him and called him an abuser and asked that he be canceled.
Arthur Mafokate found not guilty of assaulting ex-girlfriend CiCi??? To my Boyfriend : Beat me, i will get my brothers to beat the hell out of you too, no police involved. END OF STORY.
So basically what people are saying is that Arthur Mafokate should have been found guilty, even when the lady said herself that she held on to the door when he was escaping from her!
.. I always stay away from Celebrity news and all but next time i see arthur Mafokate I'm spitting on his face. Cici cant have kids now coz of the damage he caused
As of yet, there is no reported response from Cici, she did say she forgives Arthur. Briefly.co.za reported that the singer made the decision to forgive her ex-lover for his abuse and for running her name down in the media with untrue statements.
