TKZee’s Zwai Bala and Tokollo Tshabalala also known as Magesh, are at war.
Bala wants to send Magesh to jail for assaulting him and Magesh has failed to get the charge dropped even though he pleaded not guilty.
Zwai told the court “I ended up taking him to his girlfriend in Dainfern, north of Jozi. He invited me inside for a drink.
When we were inside, his girlfriend, Nandi Phutuma, wanted wine and the accused lost his temper with her and verbally abused her. He called her a monkey.”
Zwai went on: “I felt it was my duty to call him to order. I was mindful of the fact that she has a seven-year-old boy. I said to her, ‘I hope he doesn’t speak like that in front of the boy, and she said he does’.”
He said when that exchange ended, they started talking about cities. But this developed into a heated debate and Zwai decided to leave.
Nandi saw him out to his car. She was frightened, according to Zwai.
“I got into the car and reversed. I stopped the car to talk to his girlfriend to check if she’d be fine since I was leaving.
“The accused came from behind her and hit me across my face with a sharp object. Blood was gushing from my face and my vision was blurred,” he said.
Zwai drove himself to Fourways Hospital, where a doctor stitched his face up and took cellphone pictures of the injuries. The court read the doctor’s report which showed Zwai’s cut on the upper lip, a swollen nose, and a deep wound in the face.
