Kay Sibiya's sexual assault allegations

In February 2023, Sangoma and former radio presenter Zukiswa Vutela popularly known as Zookey Zarling, took to Facebook Watch to accuse Kay Sibiya of drugging her and harassing her in 2014. The assault resulted in the birth of their daughter Zia-Mia.

The former Gagasi presenter was married to a Zimbabwean man at the time and claimed she had never dated the Imbewu actor. She also revealed that Sibiya is a deadbeat dad. Her message says, in part;

This is not an expose. But a plea for my child to grow with the dignity she deserves and not in a shadow of a man that keeps destroying her name and dignity.

The battle between Kay and Zarling has been going on since the birth of their daughter. The Sangoma also claimed she became unemployable because of the paternity scandal. Addressing the situation, she said;
