My name is Mbuso Mandela [and] I am a woman abuser. I put my girlfriend's head through the window and through the Trellidor. I strangled her; she needs me to admit it, so I am admitting it in front of everybody; to everybody, thank you,

Later, another video of a woman alleged to be Mbuso Mandela's girlfriend was shared on Twitter. The second video is purported to counter the effects of the first video. The woman in question is seen to refute the claims of being abused by the former president's grandson.
I get why he posted that because in our angry little fight, we had [I] called his bluff and said he would never try and ruin his reputation, and it was wrong. I admit that completely.
As you can see, there are no bruises; my face is fine. Not too sure where he has hit my head through a Trellidor because [I'm] pretty sure it will be swollen.
You will notice, however, there is a blue mark over there [pointing to her arm], but that happened on Thursday, I bumped into a person and got a blue mark, and I bruise easily. So as you can see, nothing.
