The River Actor Presley Chweneyagae Arrested For Beating Up His Wife

GBV and femicide is a big problem in our country. I take it very seriously and would not wish it on anyone, male or female. I have previously been active on awareness of such issues and will continue to do so in my personal and professional life.

Presley and his wife had an argument on the 5th of September, over car keys and when things got heated the actor became too quick in raising his hand on her, it was not immediately if she suffered any injuries.

The River actor, who is known for his role as Cobra admitted that he had actually assaulted her and that he was arrested. He further went on to give details leading to the incident.

Presley said that they fought over his car keys as his better half refused to hand the keys. According to him, he was had to attend a work commitment, he went on to explain that her refusal made him angry to an extend of him taking it physically.

“I left her after taking the keys. The next thing, I got a call from the police that a case has been opened against me. There was no assault on her or myself. I followed the relevant protocols by handing myself over to the police, with whom I am co-operating (with),” he said.

“As husband and wife, we do have disagreements. More than anything, she is my wife and the mother of my children, and I have great respect for her. It is just unfortunate we find ourselves in this situation. The matter is with the law enforcement agencies and I wouldn’t want to comment further for the sake of my family.”

However, the DailySun saw the police statement which read, “She refused to give him the car keys because he always takes the car to drink with his friends and his friends take the car and never brings it back. He then started fighting.”

It sounds like Presley Chweneyagae’s role on The River where he stars as a drunkard who can’t manage his home affairs has turned to come to play in his real life.
