ON SCREEN, for­mer Rhythm City ac­tor, Peter Sephuma's char­ac­ter, Miles Vi­lakazi, was al­ways deal­ing with in­fi­delity prob­lems. But it seems drama has fol­lowed the vet­eran ac­tor off screen as he was ar­rested for al­leged sex­ual as­sault. How­ever, this was not the first time the ac­tor was ar­rested for as­sault.


Ac­cord­ing to a po­lice state­ment, which Move! has seen, the al­leged in­ci­dent took place when the al­leged vic­tim, Man­disa Mkhize, joined the ac­tor and his girl­friend, Har­riet, to watch a stage play at the Mar­ket The­atre in Joburg.

Man­disa said when the show ended, they went back to Peter and Har­riet’s place and that’s where her al­leged ter­ri­fy­ing or­deal started.

“The vic­tim al­leged that she was with her friend Har­riet and her boyfriend Peter Sephuma and they went to the Mar­ket The­atre to watch a play.”

“She said they had a few drinks and later drove to their place. On the way there, she fell asleep and woke up to find Peter busy touch­ing her pri­vate parts,” fur­ther read the state­ment.


Lit­tle did she know that was just the be­gin­ning of her night­mare as she told po­lice that she drove back home, but Peter fol­lowed her.

“He asked to use her bath­room and she al­lowed him to get in­side the house,” the state­ment went on to say.

Once in­side her home, the ac­tor al­legedly con­tin­ued with his be­hav­iour and even told Man­disa that he didn’t want to rape her, but she claims he force­fully took off her tights.

Ac­cord­ing to her state­ment, the only rea­son the ac­tor couldn’t fin­ish what he started was that he did not have a con­dom with him.

He then al­legedly showed off his man­hood, boast­ing to Man­disa that he can have any wo­man he wants.

He was al­legedly ar­rested for sex­ual as­sault, but re­leased the fol­low­ing day af­ter a se­nior prose­cu­tor at the Rand­burg Mag­is­trate's Court de­clined to pros­e­cute him due to a lack of in­crim­i­nat­ing ev­i­dence.


A few years ago, Peter was in­volved in another court case af­ter he al­legedly stran­gled his sis­ter and girl­friend.

A war­rant for his ar­rest was later is­sued af­ter he failed to ap­pear in court. Ac­cord­ing to reports, Peter was in his bed­room with his girl­friend when his sis­ter heard screams com­ing from the bed­room.

She went into the bed­room only to find him chok­ing his girl­friend. When she tried to re­move him, he turned and choked her too.

At the time, he was quoted as say­ing, “I had an al­ter­ca­tion with my sis­ter and it ended phys­i­cal. It was a mis­take and I apologised to my sis­ter. The family is com­ing to solve the mat­ter.”
