Mdu Masilela is out on bail of R500 after he was arrested for physically assaulting the mother of his eight-month-old child, Sibahle Dlamini.
According to The Sowetan, Masilela tried to evict Dlamini from his Bramley home she had moved into after giving birth to their child. Dlamini and Masilela had an extramarital affair, which has now ended.
“There was never intent on my part to harm her. My wife was informed where I was going to and the purpose of the visit. The content of my discussion and her calling my wife, only to realise she knows about our meeting led to her uncalled for outburst. In the course of the altercation and while defending myself, she might have been hurt,” said Masilela.
He added a glass of wine and other objects were thrown at him, but it was never his intent to retaliate.
Mdu’s wife, Sarah, said she would stand by her vows and support Masilela.
