Dj Maphorisa allegedly confiscates the cars he bought for Thuli Phongolo. Thuli Phongolo is being made fun of online after her ex-boyfriend, DJ Maphorisa, allegedly confiscated the automobiles he bought for her.
Afromambo claimed that Maphorisa had instructed someone to pick up his Porsche and Mercedes G-Wagon from Thuli.
“To respect the court and bail conditions, Maphorisa chose to send someone to repossess those cars,” a source said, as quoted by the publication.
Thuli accused Maphorisa of assault in May of this year, but eventually dropped the allegations. In a joint statement, they said that the controversy generated conflicting public attention and put them both under a lot of emotional strain.
“It is on this basis that the parties have since elected to resolve this matter privately through their respective management and legal teams. Consequently, Phongolo has since withdrawn the charges laid against Sekowe at the Saps, Sandton station.”
News24 notes that the NPA did not accept withdrawal statements because of the rise in gender-based violence.
“If she satisfies the NPA, then they will drop the charges. If not, the matter continues, and they call her to testify. If she doesn’t want to testify, she’ll be issued a subpoena and forced to testify,” legal expert, Ulrich Roux, told the publication.
Maphorisa appeared on Wednesday in the Randburg Magistrates’ Court, and his case has been postponed till Wednesday, July 12, the following week.
Twitter users are having a field day responding to Thuli and Maphorisa’s allegations of automobile confiscation. Here are some reactions:
“Thuli Phongolo tomorrow after Maphorisa took all his cars 😭😭”
“I’m not saying it’s right for Maphorisa to take his cars back from Thuli P. All I’m saying is , at my workplace when you resign or retire they take back their laptops and tools 🤦🏾♀️— Perseverance Maremeni (@madam___speaker)”
The two have not replied to the accusations of car confiscation. They made an announcement about a confidential resolution as their most recent public comment regarding their ongoing assault case.
“Being public figures, it is unavoidable that the public, media, and their respective commercial partners all have an interest in this matter.
“It is the desire of both parties to return to their respective fields of work following the now concluded private resolution of this matter. Neither of the parties have any intention to allow this private matter to impact their respective, or the other party’s brand and professional interests,” their joint statement reads.
