Victim of urination scandal left ostracised

Two years after Khayelitsha taxi driver Michelle Puis Nomgcana was urinated on by a Cape Town student, he says he's become an outcast in his community and industry.

Student and former model Djavan Arrigone stood on the balcony of the Tiger Tiger nightclub in Claremont and urinated on Nomgcana in January 2014.

Although he was found guilty in a case of assault and crimen injuria, it's alleged that Arrigone remains unapologetic.

Nomgcana says that he is ostracised in his community after the humiliating public incident which he says affected his work opportunities and family.

My life is no longer the same.

Michelle Puis Nomgcana

Nomgcana is now seeking financial compensation to provide relief from his struggles and to perform a cleansing ritual which he hopes will appease his ancestors.
