‘Never laid a hand on her’: ‘Uzalo’ actor denies abuse claims
Democratic Alliance (DA) councillor and Simphiwe Majozi’s former girlfriend Kekeletso Mahlelebe detailed how the popular actor and singer-songwriter allegedly physically assaulted her and cheated on her with a number of women.
Mahlelebe told City Press on 4 September that Majozi “cheated a couple of times, and his family was not nice to me, and he did not want to resolve anything.”
SIMPHIWE MAJOZI: I RESPECT WOMEN VERY MUCH’
According DRUM, Majozi — who plays the role of Sbu in the SABC1 soapie Uzalo — released a statement this week. in which he defends himself against the accusations levelled against him by his now ex-girlfriend.
“I would like to categorically state that I respect women very much and those that have had a chance of being in close proximity with me can attest to that…”
Majozi said that laying a hand on Kekeletso is “one of those things that just never happened…”.
“I have never at any point in the relationship laid a hand on her.”
The actor added that he respects Mahlelebe, but he does not take kindly to her calling him an abuser and a serial cheater.
Majozi also called on Mahlelebe to come forward with anything that proves that she was abusive.
‘SHE CHEATED BEHIND MY BACK’
The actor also told DRUM that in all of the years that he was in a relationship with Mahlelebe, he treated her daughter as his own even though he does not have a biological child.
Majozi however did not hold back when it came to “exposing” Mahlelebe of her own alleged wrong-doings in their relationship.
“Before the end of the relationship, Kekeletso started seeing someone behind my back. She would go to Johannesburg for weeks while leaving her child with me and my helper
Majozi claims that she would go and leave her child with him and his helper.
He said he did not mind taking care of her daughter until he found out the real reasons for her trips.
“If I was an abuser that she claims I am, I don’t believe as a good mother she would leave her girl child with an abuser for weeks.”
“KEKELETSO ABUSED ME AND MY FAMILY”
Mahlelebe also claims that Mahlelebe physically abused him and his family members.
“I believe Keke was in this for fame. she was never in love with Simphiwe Majozi but was in love with Sbu Makhathini from Uzalo,” he is quoted as saying in DRUM.
