Exclusive Pics And Voice Notes : Bujy Boasts About Beating Up Boity

Published

on

Radio and TV personality “Bujy” Bikwa (33) was recently booked and charged for assault with intent to cause grievous bodily harm after allegedly throwing a glass at 31-year-old media personality Boity Thulo.

This resulted in Boity being injured on the face after an argument broke out at a hotel in Midrand Johannesburg. After being held in custody at the Johannesburg Correctional Centre, Bujy was granted R2 000 bail at the Midrand Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday and warned by the court not to tamper with investigations.

Boity has since addressed the incident in a statement saying she is following the case with keen interest.

Several witnesses have come forward over the last few days to state that Boity seemed aggravated on the night of the fight.

Bujy and Boity were among a number of people invited to what was meant to be Huawei’s official launch of the new Nova8 cellphone.

According to the witnesses, the Huawei Nova8 event was initially cancelled because of Johannesburg’s rainy weather on the day.

The Huawei publicity team reportedly decided to take guests out for dinner to make up for the cancellation and said dinner is estimated to have come to an end at around 9.30pm. Guests who were unable to make it home before curfew were booked into the nearby Courtyard Hotel where the fight between Bujy and Boity is said to have taken place.

It is alleged that Boity had gotten into several arguments on the evening prior to her altercation with Bujy.

In an interview with The Citizen, one witness alleges that Boity insisted on giving unsolicited “readings” in her capacity as a traditional healer (sangoma). Her unwelcomed readings were reportedly met with much resistance, which aggravated Boity even further in the witness’ opinion.

At some point during the evening, Bujy reportedly tried to step in and calm Boity down and she did not take too kindly to him attempting to do so.

Listen to what happened the night Bujy Bikwa and Boity Thulo got into a physical altercation:

In audio shared with The Citizen, Bujy and Boity can be heard berating and insulting each other.

“Is this how weak you are? With such aggressiveness?” Bujy asks Boity in the audio clip.

Mzansi Mourns Gomora Actor Don Buthelezi (Israel Matseke Zulu)

Actor Israel Matseke Zulu plays the role of Don Buthelezi on Gomora. He leaves Gomora through death, Don was shot by his son Teddy – the role played by Sicelo Buthelezi. On Gomora, Don plays the role of an impulsive gang leader who previously left his marriage with Zodwa to stay in Sandton with a wealthy woman. Don’s fortunes turned south when the rich woman died, and her relatives took away everything leaving Teddy and their daughter Sibongile – the role played by Nandipha Khubone homeless.

In a bid to have a roof over his head, Don turned to Zodwa, who lives with her son Teddy. Don is Teddy’s father; he abandoned him at a tender age and had an obsession to make up for the lost time and regain his son’s trust.

When Don returned to Gomora, his birthplace, he tried to make ends meet through working at Zodwa’s boyfriend, Bongani’s Shisanyama. He joined a crime syndicate and took over Mamsonto’s operations as the car hijacking syndicate leader.

The struggle for power between Mamsonto’s camp, led by Thathi, her daughter and Don, ended in bloodshed. Thathi connived with Don’s trusted man Ntokozo and Stompie to direct him into a lion’s den. When Don found out he was trapped, he cornered Ntokozo and wanted to kill him; he drove to the river and forced him to dig his own grave. Mazet arrived on the scene and wrestled for Don’s gun, which went off, leaving Mazet injured and wheelchair-bound for the rest of her life.

Who killed Don on Gomora?

Don succumbed in the hands of his loved one Teddy who had earlier on purchased a gun to protect his mother against violent Don. Teddy again saved Ntokozo and Melusi when he killed his biological father, Don.

Whats next for Israel Matseke Zulu?

Israel Matseke Zulu leaves Gomora as an actor but retains his behind the scenes role. Before playing Don on Gomora, Israel was involved during the telenovela’s conception as a scene scout. He looked for places to shoot scenes and managed to secure the school in which Gomora was being shot.

WATCH | Man shot in head by cop during argument at Gauteng hotel

A man is in a coma after he was shot in the head, allegedly by a police officer, during an argument at Misty Hills Country Hotel, in Muldersdrift, Gauteng.

The man, who was a guest at the hotel, was shot after he allegedly fought with staff at the hotel on Saturday. It is not yet clear what the argument was about.

In a video of the incident, which has gone viral, the man is seen putting on his underwear as police officers stand around him at the entrance of a room.

One police officer is heard saying, “now you are playing dangerous”, as he approaches with a gun after ostensibly cocking it.

He shouts at the entrance: “Whose playing dangerous? You f****** coward. Come on.”

A woman off screen is heard saying that they are supposed to feel safe around the police, not endangered.

The man then comments that he is ashamed of the police officers. He is then seen grabbing a gun from an officer, saying, “take that gun, shoot me, shoot me”.

The officer’s colleague is seen firing a shot at him and he crumples to the floor, eliciting screams from the woman in the room.

According to the Independent Police Investigative Directorate (IPID), following an argument with staff, the manager had requested that the man leave the premises, and the hotel would refund him. However, he refused.

“… the security and manager followed him to his room and requested him to leave, then he became more aggressive,” said IPID spokesperson Grace Langa.

She said police officers were called to the hotel to assist and, when they arrived, the man started fighting with the police.

“He took a firearm out of the bed drawer, cocked it and one bullet fell down, and it is alleged the victim disarmed one police officer of his firearm.

“The guest (victim) was in possession of two firearms, then one police officer took out his service pistol and shot that guest once in the head,” said Langa.

His wife is believed to have been present.

South Africans Campaign To Stop Zimbabwe Permits Renewal

Published

By

The Zimbabwe Permits Renewal process is due to be announced in a few days and a few South Africans have started a campaign to have the Zimbabwe Permits Renewal process halted.

#NoToZimWorkPermits is trending on Twitter as South Africans try to put pressure on their government to stop the renewal of the Zimbabwe Exemption Permits (ZEP).

Those behind the campaign have asked the government to #PutSouthAfricansFirst a hashtag that has been in and out of the top trends on Twitter whenever foreigners become a topic.

They have cited SA’s high unemployment rate for their campaign.

The campaign comes after SA Minister of Home Affairs Aaron Motsoalade said that the cabinet was deliberating on the issue of the ZEP renewal and that an announcement would be made soon.

Another group of ZEP holders approached the Johannesburg high court in a bid to force the Department of Home Affairs to declare ZEP holders permanent residents. The group says that they have stayed legally in the country for more than ten years and they now had nowhere else to go.

The court challenge caused another uproar on social media as South Africans questioned why the Zimbabweans no longer wanted to go back home.

#NoToZimWorkPermits started trending on Sunday afternoon sparking an exchange of insults between Zimbabweans and the campaigners.

Zim Journalist Hopewell Chin’ono joined the conversation asking Zimbabweans not to insult South Africans.

#NoToZimWorkPermits will be hated by about 180,000 ZEP holders anxiously waiting for a positive announcement.

Campaigns against foreigners in South Africa are an ongoing thing. It remains to be seen if the current campaign will force a policy shift.
