The Kwaito star is facing assault charges with intent to cause grievous bodily harm.

The assault took place in June last year and caused Thwala to undergo a pelvic replacement operation.

Mafokate allegedly dragged her through the streets with his car.

Mafokate also opened an assault docket against Thwala, who pleaded not guilty to the charges.

The matter is postponed to May 11.
