From the moment Babes Wodumo posted the video of her being assaulted by boyfriend Mampintsha on Sunday abuse has been a hot topic.
The assault dominated headlines with numerous celebrities, politicians and public in general voicing the overwhelming concerns with the contents of the video.
Kelly Khumalo was dragged in to the mix during #IfIWasBabes that was trending on social media. Which we views a cyberbullying and do not condone such.
DJ Tira was also dragged into this assault video outrage. Many people claiming that DJ Tira doesn’t stand up against women abuse. Instead he supports people who have been accused of abusing women.
Such as one of his Afrotainment dances who have been accused of rape and that he also didn’t cancel Mampintsha’s performance at one of his events last year when news first broke of Mampintsha’s abuse of Babes Wodumo.
DJ Tira’s wife Gugu Khati has come to the defence of her husband and posted the following statement on her social media “It truly hurts to see how the attention has shifted to @djtira and not trying support @babes_wodumo Bongekile Simelani was assaulted last night by Mampintsha her boyfriend this is a criminal act abuse is abuse and mampintsha should be punished period! Ukuthi how u making this about tira it’s amazing your comments alone are abusive for ppl who are saints , it’s such things that made babes go back previously cause she then was made to feel sorry via your backlash against mampintsha / abuse is a sensitive issue also life threatening don’t focus on things or ppl who will delay actions that should be taken. #enoughisenough I’d also like to appeal to the police department to take abuse cases seriously our system has made women stay away from reporting these cases. Mampintsha must pay. I also appeal to our communities to just be this angry wen our sisters are being abused let abuse piss u off that u wanna take action period.”
DJ Tira did also put out a statement on his social media in which he stated that he whole heartedly believes that no man should ever lay a hand on a woman no matter what the circumstances.
