Boity Thulo

Boity Thulo has taken to her social media to share a statement confirming that she was a victim of a physical attack.

In the statement, Boity writes: “It is with deep sadness to state that I was indeed an unfortunate victim of a physical assault and that I have since opened a case against the culprit, which I am following with a keen interest.”

She went on to say that she doesn’t wish to comment further on the matter and asked for space as she tries to find “a way to heal both physically and emotionally from this traumatic experience.”

“I have all the faith in our criminal justice system and implore everyone to stand firmly against GBV,” she concluded.

The Ba Kae hitmaker’s statement comes just a day after iHarare reported that Metro FM presenter, Bujy Bikwa, had allegedly thrown a bottle of alcohol at Boity which allegedly cut her face during an argument at a hotel in Midrand on Thursday evening. Boity did not confirm who the perpetrator of her assault was.

  • Shortage of truck and bus drivers in South Africa as in the US and UK
  • One alleged witness told the news outlet that: “Bujy really beat that girl up badly. Boity was wearing a white shirt and her shirt was red with bloodstains her face was also bad.”

    The news outlet also reported that Boity opened a case of assault at the Midrand police station and that Bujy was arrested shortly afterwards and spent the evening behind bars.

    This isn’t the first time that Bujy has been accused of assault. In 2017, he stood accused of stabbing two neighbours at his family home in Orange Farm. In one interview, he said that he had done so in defence of himself and his brother.

    Watch: Teddy Mafia’s son-in-law targeted in Shallcross drive-by shooting

    Teddy mafia son in law

    Kesavan Isaac Naidoo, the son-in-law of slain alleged Durban drug boss “Teddy Mafia” has survived a brazen attempted assassination on Wednesday, his family confirmed.

    The incident took place at about 10am in Shallcross, south of Durban.

    Naidoo, 41, is the son-in-law of Yaganathan Pillay – also known as Teddy Mafia.

    He was shot twice in a daylight hit on Table Mountain Drive. The incident was captured on CCTV.

    “Isaac was shot in both legs and his driver was shot in the hand. Both of them survived. They’re in hospital,” he said.

    Pillay said Naidoo was in the back seat while his wife was in the front. The shooting, seen in the footage, takes place moments after they open the doors of their vehicle to get out.

    In the footage, a white vehicle can be seen driving along Table Mountain Drive before it is stopped, partially blocking the left hand side of the road. Thirteen seconds later, Naidoo’s vehicle, a white Toyota Fortuna, pulls up.

    The back passenger door of the Fortuner is opened, but it is not clear from the footage who the person was who opened it or if they got out of the vehicle.

    Naidoo’s wife is seen getting out of the front passenger side of the vehicle and walks towards the rear of the SUV.

    Suddenly, four men alight from the stationary vehicle, three of them drawing firearms and running towards the Fortuner, firing multiple shots. The fourth man stands next to the white car.

    As the bullets are fired, Naidoo’s driver accelerates and drives past the other vehicle. Naidoo is presumably in the vehicle as it speeds away, but this could not immediately be confirmed.

    Pillay said Naidoo was doing “OK”.

    Police have been approached for comment, and this story will be updated.
