The girlfriend of Idols SA runner-up Mthokozisi Ndaba has spoken out for the first time since he was charged with assault.
Speaking to East Coast Radio’s drive show with Bongani and Mags, ‘Miss P’, as she would like to be known, says she does not believe he was abusive on the night in question.
Mthokozisi was accused of assaulting 24-year-old Neo Tsele at an apartment in Braamfontein last month. Pictures of her badly-bruised faced were shared online, with many calling on Mthokozisi to explain himself.
The charges against the aspiring singer were provisionally withdrawn after Neo reportedly failed to show up in court.
‘Miss P’ says when she heard Neo’s interview about the alleged assault on-air, she was concerned that people were only getting one side of the story.
“If she was so passionate about getting back at him, and proving he had done this to her, she would have been the first one in court. But she was a no-show at court,” she said.
‘Miss P’ added she was not with Mthokozisi when the alleged incident took place.
“I only found out through social media, and through him, on that Saturday when he was leaving to come through to KZN. That morning when he called me from the airport, he said: ‘You know what P, you may find something out on social media about me assaulting a lady. I don’t know what’s going on. But when I find out more I will let you know’.”
When asked whether Mthokozisi assaulted Neo, Miss P said she did not believe so.
“To my knowledge, no, he did not assault her.” she said.
