A warrant of arrest has been issued for Bongekile Simelane also known as Babes Wodumo and Mandla ‘Mampintsha’ Maphumulo at the Pinetown Magistrates Court after they failed to pitch at court today.
Last month, Babes Wodumo failed to appear in court over an assault case she brought against her boyfriend Mampintsha.
The case was then postponed to the 9th of July 2019.
Simelane opened an assault case against Mampintsha after a video made the rounds on social media where Mampintsha could be seen being physically violent towards Simelane.
The pair were referred for mediation to family and marriage healthcare organisation Families South Africa during the pair’s first court appearance in April.
Mampintsha’s lawyer Pat Magwaza says he has been unable to reach his client.
