Babes Wodumo common assault trial postponed

South African Gqom superstar Babes Wodumo, her sister Nondumiso Simelane and  artist Tipcee’s common assault trial was postponed to 30 May 2019 after they appeared briefly at the Durban Magistrate’s court on Wednesday morning.

The accused allegedly assaulted KwaZulu-Natal businesswoman Nelisiwe Zondi at a Durban party in March.

She claims Babes and her co-accused beat her on the same night that Babes’ recorded herself being assaulted by kwaito artist Mampintsha.

“I thought I was dying. They took turns stomping on me with their feet. I was traumatised and I screamed for help, but they didn’t stop. I believe the neighbours called the police because there was so much noise and screaming coming from the guesthouse,” she said of the incident.
