Cici and Arthur in social media scuffle over abuse allegations

As the abuse case between Arthur Mafokate and singer Cici continues to play out in court, the pair have tackled each other with stinging comments on social media.

ICYMI: Cici vows justice against Arthur Mafokate

Arthur found himself making headlines yet again this week after he received major backlash for initial plans to join the 100 Men March against women and child abuse on Tuesday.

The kwaito veteran, who is currently facing assault charges laid against him by Cici, was slammed for wanting to take part in the march.

In the end, Arthur decided not to attend the march.

Arthur, who appeared on Power FM on Tuesday morning to address the debacle, apparently made comments about the alleged abuse, which did not sit well with Cici.

The singer shared a picture of what appears to be an x-ray that apparently shows injuries sustained during the alleged altercation between her and Arthur.

Cici questioned Arthur’s ‘not guilty’ stance, which he has maintained throughout the incident.

Arthur hit back at the comments through a statement on Twitter, telling Cici that the only reason he hadn’t commented on her social media posts was for her “own dignity” and “out of respect”.

He said he would continue to do so until court proceedings were over.

Meanwhile, in the wake of the fiasco, SAMRO has announced that it had decided to fire Arthur as a board member, following the “unwanted attention” that has come after he was charged with assault.

The organisation released a statement on its website about the news.

“…It was unanimously agreed that the ongoing court case involving Mr Mafokate and Ms Busisiwe Twala has continued to attract undesirable, and quite frankly worrying publicity, which has also caused serious harm to the public perception of the organisation.

In the SAMRO Board meeting held on the 28th of June 2018, the Board resolved that notice be given to Mr Mafokate of the decision to initiate the process to remove him from the SAMRO Board as a non-executive Director. The resolution of the Board, is neither a pronouncement on the potential outcome nor merits of the case.”
