ANC outrage over Babes Wodumo 'abuse' video
The African National Congress condemns the alleged abuse of the internationally celebrated Artist Bongekile Simelane, better known as Babes Wodumo by her partner, former Big Nuz member Mandla Maphumulo also known as Mampintsha. Early Monday morning, the Gqom artist posted a live Instagram video showing the alleged abuse following what appears to be an argument between the two. In the video, Mampintsha and Wodumo can be seen arguing before the Big Nuz star strikes Wodumo repeatedly. As the ANC we are absolutley horrified by the actions of Musician Mampintsha and urge Wodumo to lay charges against her partner.
Violence against women in this country is out of control and we must always take a stand. Hitting a woman is unacceptable and will not be tolerated. This is not the first time Mampintsha has been accused of abusing Wodumo. In May last year it was revealed during an interview on Metro FM that Wodumo had split with Mampintsha following allegations he had repeatedly abused her. ANC condemns this senseless act and calls on South Africans to isolate the perpetrators of gender-based violence with the same zeal as when we fought racism.
I thank you
