Twitter reacts to Baes Wodumo’s allegations against manager and partner

Babes Wodumo shocked the whole of the country when she revealed that her manager and partner, Mampintsha, has been physically abusing her.

After her revelation, Mampintsha took to his Facebook page to write a statement about the allegations. In it, he admitted to have over reacted in some instances. He also said he is no saint and did not plead absolute innocence in the claims made.


He said:

“This interview and the revealation that i have been physically abusing her unfortunately occurs amidst a public outcry on the increasing incidents of violence against women. Many of which in recent months have led to the killing of women by their lovers.

“As a public figure and a man i should be at the fore front of the campaigns against gender based and domestic violence. I’m no saint, nor do i plead absolute innocence in the claims made in that interview.

“I may have overeacted in a couple of incidents during our relationship with her over certain things i will not be comfortable to discuss in the public domain. I fully understand that no human being owns or is entitled to another and that every human being is at all times at liberty to take personal decisions, do what pleases him or her and persue a life of his or her choosing iregardless of any commitment he or she may have with another person or the implications and impact those may have on the other person.

“Many have correctly and understably took to social media platforms to vent their anger and dissapointed after the interview. I want to apologise to South Africa for the dissapointing you and discourage other men out there who may find themselves in my situation or different one that challenge your emotional stabillity and restrain.

“No man has any right or justificaction to abuse a woman in any form whatsoever. I know for sure that there are many such cases happening out there that do not get to be known because of the absence of the motive, forces and courage to get them known like mine. Those too must stop. it would be great if the producers of that interview and other media outlets find equal interest and courage to research and broadcast all the women abuse cases out there whose perpetrators and victims are of no particular social standing.

“I want to assure South Africans, in particular our supporters that violence is not in my character, especially towards women. like a human being in a relationship i may have been overwhelmed by emotions and over reacted. where we come from with her , abusive wouldn’t best define the nature of our journey. We wouldn’t get this far.

“As for the accuracy of the abuse claims, the build up to the interview, the motive and the timing….is a matter i will leave to fate to decide its fate. everything you hear and everything you see, nothing is what it seems. out of respect for the relationship we had and for the people who supported us, i have chosen to not discuss this matter beyond this statement. ngiyaxolisa mina.UNKULUNKULU ASISIZE LESKHATHI.”

Fans then came to Babes’ defense on social media, many sharing their disappointment.

Twitter reactions

It's a sad commentary that someone like #Mampintsha adds up to the statistics of abusive men at such a time like this. As long as we feel some people deserved to be abused, there will always be an excuse to abuse. Listen up brothers..No reason is good enough to abuse a woman!

We all hold different views about what transpired on Metro FM earlier.

For what it is worth, conversations and solutions regarding women abuse are required ASAP

Let's try not to speak past each other but to each other

"Feminists" who have been preaching that we need to break the silence on women abuse & are the ones who are hating on Masechaba Ndlovu for doing exactly that.
Whether it was Masechaba or not, whether live on radio or not, somebody needed to save Babes from #Mampintsha

Jist of Mampitsha's statement released through the west ink Facebook page (thread)

-He's basically doing us a favor by explaining himself.

-He has never abused her but he might've "over reacted" a couple of times
