Cape Town — Enough is enough - Bongekile Simelane, popularly known as Babes Wodumo, has revealed that she no longer wants to stay in an abusive relationship with Mampintsha.
The video went viral, then fans and fellow artists took to social media to slam Mampintsha.
But Mampintsha claimed that it was self-defence and he then countered Wodumo's claims, saying she is the one who had been abusing him over the years they have been together. He was released on R2,000 bail.
Now Babes Wodumo says she doesn't want to be the next victim.
"I could have been next!! This could have been you, your sister, your daughter, your niece.....We are not victims but survivors."
This is not the first time Mampintsha has been accused of assaulting her.
Last year, the country was shocked when Babes Wodumo, faced questions from a Metro FM presenter about physical abuse in their relationship. Masechaba claimed that she had a friend who had said that she had taken Wodumo in when Mampintsha allegedly punched her in the face and broke her leg.
Mampintsha then went on the defensive - he went on Metro FM where he denied beating Wodumo. Mampintsha told the listeners that his name was "dragged and disrespected".
The case has been postponed to May 15.
