Mixed reaction on how Masechaba Ndlovu exposed ‘abusive’ Mampintsha

Radio host Masechaba Ndlovu revealed that Bongekile 'Babes Wodumo' Simelane once got a nose-bleed and broken leg in the hands of Mandla 'Mampintsha' Maphumulo.

JOHANNESBURG – South Africans have weighed in following a public revelation on a radio show that Mandla Maphumulo, also known as “Mampintsha”, was abusing Ggom singer Babes Wodumo while the two dated.

On Friday, radio host Masechaba Ndlovu revealed that Babes Wodumo, whose real name is Bongekile Simelane, once got a nose-bleed and broken leg in the hands of Maphumulo.

During the interview on Metro FM, Simelane did not confirm nor deny the claims.

In response to the allegations, Maphumulo released a statement saying he apologises and that he "may have been overwhelmed by emotions and overreacted" in some situations.

“I am no saint, nor do I plead absolute innocence in the claims made in that interview. I may have overreacted in a couple of incidents during our relationship with her over certain things I will not be comfortable to discuss in the public domain.”

He added: “I want to apologise to South Africa for disappointing you and discourage other men out there who may find themselves in my situation or a different one that challenges your emotional stability and restraint. No man has any right or justification to abuse a woman in any form whatsoever."

Now tweeps have started the hashtag #MampintshaIsTrash in support of Simelane while others are debating whether Ndlovu went about it the "right" way in exposing the abuse.
