Zinhle Mabena’s assault charges still pending, two others dropped



Zinhle Mabena is still facing assault charges as the two other charges against her has been dropped.

The star was arrested for allegedly plotting to kill her husband Robert Ngwenya.

She was, however, filed three charges which includes theft and malicious damage to property, and the other two are for assault.

Although Zinhle was arrested and released but the case is still on as it was reported she appeared in court yesterday, 16 March.

According to report, the charges of theft and damage to property were thrown out because her ex-husband allegedly slashed his own car tyres.

He was caught on tape, hence the state refused to prosecute her for those charges.

Speaking on the assault charges, “It has been postponed in order for the state to provide me with full disclosure and once disclosure has taken place, we will then make representation to have the matter withdrawn once we have seen the evidence,” said Mabena’s lawyer Joshua Shapiro.

Robert claims that he is a victim of domestic violence and that Zinhle pushed him down the stairs.

He had visible scars which he got from the fall, which was a result from an argument between the two at their marital home in June 2020.

Ngwenaya apparently got injured on his cheek, shoulder and back and the publication claims to have seen a report filed by his medical team.
