The on-going feud between Zinhle Mabena and Robert Ngwenya has now taken a replacement turn because the court has ruled in favour of Ngwenya!
The couple were in court in the week after Mabena requested a warrant of arrest to be issued when her husband violated the protection order a couple of days ago. The protection order was issued in December last year after the actress complained to the domestic relations court .
Ngwenya’s lawyer, Shani van Niekerk told Daily Sun: “The main reason we came to court today was for him to not be arrested which was successful. Justice was served and this was what was alleged to happen. The matter isn’t completely over and that we think there’s still an extended road before us except for now it’s done.”
Mabena lawyer, Joshua Lazarus stated: “The wheels of justice turn slowly, but they’re going to turn. It’s true that he wasn’t arrested, but certain provisions of the interim protection order still stand.”
Sowetan Live confirmed the contents of the document as quoted by the publication which read: “Therefore you’re hereby authorised and ordered to forthwith arrest the respondent (Ngwenya) in terms of the provisions of the violence Act, 1998, if there are reasonable grounds to suspect that the complainant (Mabena) may suffer imminent harm as a results of the alleged breach of the protection order by the respondent.”
The recent court drama all began when Mabena’s ex-husband, Robert Ngwenya tried to go to Mabena several times and Mabena requested for him to be arrested.
The two were also trending a couple of days ago when Ngwenya revealed to the general public that his actress ex-wife was abusing him physically.
Ngwenya released a press release to the media which read: “At some point in my very own marriage [I] felt abused by my very own wife. Not only did I seek a restraining order, but I even laid a complaint with the police because I couldn’t stand physical abuse.
It, therefore, cannot come as a shock or something out of the standard if my child or my very own wife lay such a complaint against me or the other member of the family.
Any quite abuse, whether real or imagined, must be, without fail, reported to law-enforcement agencies and let the courts establish facts and distribute the acceptable punishment. Whether perpetrated by a person or a lady , abuse of any form must not ever be tolerated.”
