Actor Tumisho Masha back in court
Actor and former Top Billing presenter Tumisho Masha is expected to appear in the Randburg Magistrate’s Court on Friday on charges of intent to cause grievous bodily harm and malicious damage to property.
Masha allegedly slapped his wife Zozibini Mtongana and allegedly tried to strangle her, smashed her cellphone against a wall at their upmarket home in Dainfern, north of Joburg on July 20 reportedly after an argument over Mtongana’s decision to sleep in the guest room.
Mtongana filed for a protection order shortly after the incident but only opened a case of assault a few days later.
The actor and presenter was released on R1,000 bail last month after he offered to vacate the matrimonial home.
In an Instagram post, Masha said, “Just because I’m a celebrity doesn’t mean I don’t make mistakes. Just coz I’m on tv doesn’t mean I’m not real and just coz I’m smiling doesn’t mean I don’t hurt.”
