Mixed reactions as Dj Maphorisa allegedly confiscates the cars he bought for Thuli Phongolo

DJ Maphorisa appeared in the Randburg Magistrates' Court this Wednesday, and his case was postponed to 12 July.

Netizens are poking fun at Thuli Phongolo after her estranged boyfriend, DJ Maphorisa, allegedly confiscated the cars he bought for her.

According to Zimoja, Maphorisa sent someone to fetch his Mercedes G-Wagon and Porsche 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.

In May this year, Thuli laid an assault charge against Maphorisa, but later dropped the charges. Their joint statement highlighted that the matter received mixed public attention, causing a great deal of emotional stress on them.

“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 Consequently, Phongolo has since withdrawn the charges laid against Sekowe at the Saps, Sandton station.”

However, News24 reports that due to the increase in gender-based violence, the NPA did not accept withdrawal statements.

“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 in the Randburg Magistrates’ Court this Wednesday, and his case has been postponed to next week Wednesday, 12 July.

“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.
