- DJ Tira's wife, Gugu Khathi, is accused of assaulting an older woman
- Gugu admitted to punching the lady, a neighbour, but claims she had to do so to get her off
- It seems DJ Tira's family and the neighbours have been unhappy with each other for some time
According to a report by The Sowetan, the wife of popular local DJ, DJ Tira, has been accused of attacking an older woman.
Briefly.co.za gathered that Gugu Khathi admitted that she punched the woman, who is a neighbour, but did so because she had to.
The two got into an argument in their private and gated complex in Roodepoort and things escalated pretty quickly.
Benjamin O'Neal, the husband of Cindy, the 50-year-old lady who got punched, says Gugu barged into their home and threatened them, saying it is their 'second warning'.
The couple apparently accused DJ Tira's son, Junior, of driving recklessly in the complex.
Here's what Benjamin is quoted as saying what happened after Gugu entered their home:
"My wife crossed her arms and said to her, 'get off my property'. Gugu stepped back and tripped over the bicycle. We tried to help her get up and she refused.
"She got up after being helped up and she punched my wife once in the face."
However, Gugu says it happened differently.
"They attacked my son and then turned around and attacked me. His [Junior's] little brother came rushing and told me 'come see what these people did'. I rushed to their house to ask what my son did to deserve this and they looked at me with attitude."
Gugu admitted to punching Cindy.
"I was trying to show her that I was injured and she kept dragging my foot. She wouldn't let go, as soon as I could kneel, I punched her. So, she can get off me.
"They are crazy. They have called us everything, including criminals because we are always changing cars. They even harass my kids outside the estate, taking videos of him [Junior]. We are always travelling and I'm afraid for my son's safety."
The older couple has complained, in vain, about DJ Tira and his family's loud parties and Junior's careless driving, reports ZAlebs.
"They need to realise that you live in a communal estate and you must respect others."
