Bujy Jikwa, accused of hitting Boity Thulo with a beer glass at a hotel in Waterfall, allegedly caused a scene at Midrand Police Station refusing to share a cell with male detainees.

The former Metro FM deejay Bujy Bikwa is charged with assault with intent to cause grievous bodily harm following the attack on rapper Thulo.

The police eventually put Bujy in a single cell since they could also not let him share a cell with females.

National Prosecuting Authority spokesperson Phindi Mjonondwane said Bikwa appeared at the Midrand Magistrate’s Court on Friday and was denied bail.

“The case was postponed to Wednesday. The accused is in custody and was charged with assault,” Mjonondwane said.

Bikwa allegedly threw a bottle of alcohol at Thulo and cut her on the face during an argument at the Courtyard Hotel while they were out with friends.

    Police spokesperson Mavela Masondo said Thulo had opened a case at Midrand Police Station on the night of the incident.

    Yesterday morning, Bikwa’s phone was answered by a woman who declined to comment.

    Thulo confirmed the incident in a statement released yesterday:

    It is with deep sadness to state that I was indeed an unfortunate victim of a vicious assault and that I have since opened a case against the culprit, which I am following with keen interest. I do not wish to comment on this matter any further. I respectfully request some space as I try to find a way to heal both physically and emotionally from this traumatic experience. I have faith in our criminal justice system and implore everyone to stand firmly against gender-based violence.

    “They were busy drinking and talking about sangomas and ancestors before an argument started. I am not sure who started it, but they were screaming at each other and swearing before they started fighting,” one eyewitness said.

    Another said: “Bujy really beat that girl up badly … Boity was wearing a white shirt and her shirt was red with blood stains. Her face was also bad.”

    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.
