The controversy surrounding the celebrities is far from being over.
A warrant of arrest has been issued for Gqom stars, Babes Wodumo and Mampintsha.
National Prosecuting Authority spokesperson Natasha Ramkisson says the warrant was issued after the pair failed to appear in the Pinetown Magistrate’s Court on Tuesday.
The court appearance is related to assault charges that Babes laid against Mampintsha after a video of him being physically violent towards her went viral on social media.
During a previous court appearance the couple agreed to go for family mediation at Families South Africa (Famsa).
Maphumulo’s lawyer Pat Magwaza said he arrived late after he attempted to locate the couple.
“Unfortunately, I cannot find them. I was told they were at their home. I have not seen them or spoken to them. I cannot get hold of them,” he said.
The court previously heard that both parties had agreed to intervention from Famsa. The organisation provides counselling, education and training for South Africans who want help with relationship issues.
Maphumulo was previously granted R2 000 bail. He was arrested after a video of him launching a physical attack on Simelane went viral.
The court ordered him to have no contact with Simelane.
