Veteran kwaito star Arthur Mafokate has been acquitted of assaulting his former girlfriend Busisiwe “Cici” Thwala, his lawyers confirmed in a statement.

Mafokate was accused of assaulting Thwala at his Midrand home in 2017 and the case had been in and out of court since then.

Record label boss Mafokate also laid a counter-assault charge against Thwala but she was found not guilty.

Last year, the prosecutor recused himself because Thwala laid a complaint against him with the NPA.

Mafokate’s lawyers said that the Midrand Magistrates Court acquitted him of assault on Tuesday.
