Right now Zinhle Mabena and her estranged husband have more drama than Isibaya only difference is this is real-life drama. Last week we were all left shocked and trying to figure out what could be going on between the Isibaya actress and Mugabe Ngwenya. Trying to find who exactly was at fault has been a mission impossible but now there’s a bit of light.
Last week the actress was wrongfully arrested after she was accused of killing her husband’s bodyguard and attempting to him too. Ngwenya also rushed to the media to speak on how Zinhle used to physically abuse. Lo and Behold, from the latest reports it seems like he isn’t the victim.
Last Friday the North Gauteng High Court issued a warrant for his arrest in accordance with his violation of the protection order Zinhle obtained in December. Zinhle opened a case of assault and damage to property against Robert in September.
However, cops had visited his address but he wasn’t available. His lawyer tried denying that there’s a warrant of arrest against him but the police have confirmed that they had paid the businessman a visit.
Spokesman Captain Kay Makhubele said: “Police went out to look for the husband and he was not found at the address. The other cases of assault and malicious damage to property are still under investigation. Dockets were taken to SPP.”
Speaking to Daily Sun Zinhle’s lawyers explained the legal battle that the actress is faced with. Joshua Lazarus said the warrant of arrest was issued because of several contraventions of the domestic violence order emanating from “emotional, psychological, economic and financial abuse”.
“He’s not been arrested as the police cannot locate him,” he said. He explained why the protection order was sought against his client’s estranged husband.
“The protection order was opened owing to physical abuse, verbal abuse, emotional abuse, economic and financial abuse. After an incident where our client was assaulted and her car tyres were maliciously slashed by Mr Ngwenya. The case is still active and the police are purportedly opposing it.”
Hmmm…. talk about a twist of events.
