FASH­ION­ISTA Uyanda Mbuli seems to have sus­pected her now es­tranged hus­band of 10 years, businessman Sisa Mbuli, of bat­ting for the other team.

Sisa al­leges that Uyanda threat­ened to ex­pose his gay

“ten­den­cies in their

” Kyalami home this year.

These tid­bits were re­vealed in af­fi­davits sub­mit­ted to the Midrand Mag­is­trates

’ Court, north of Joburg, where Uyanda ob­tained a pro­tec­tion or­der against Sisa on Fri­day.

Dur­ing the pro­ceed­ings Uyanda al­leged that Sisa phys­i­cally abused her and broke her nose, ne­ces­si­tat­ing a nose job.

Uyanda al­leges Sisa hit and pushed her un­til she fell, then al­legedly snatched her cell­phone and deleted a video she had recorded of the brawl.

In his de­fence, Sisa tried to paint a picture of Uyanda as a mon­ster who pushed him over the edge. The Ap­pli­cant (Uyanda) came “back (home) and force­fully and an­grily asked me how long I d be

’ work­ing in the be­d­room.

I re­quested her to use the guest “be­d­room, a re­quest she clearly did not like, and (she) started shout­ing at me, at the same time call­ing her friends to come to our main be­d­room. When one of her friends “re­sponded and was com­ing up she changed her mind and told him not to come up.

She con­tin­ued to ver­bally “abuse me, say­ing that she will ex­pose me to all my as­so­ciates and at my place of em­ploy­ment, as well as ex­pose my gay ten­den­cies,” Sisa says in his re­ply­ing af­fi­davit.

Sisa also dis­misses as un­true the charge that he broke Uyanda s

’ nose. He says Uyanda went un­der the knife to panel-beat her face be­cause she wanted to en­ter a beauty com­pe­ti­tion.

He also says Uyanda sub­jected her own mother and sib­lings to the same ag­gres­sive be­hav­iour.

Her be­hav­iour is con­sis“tent with the be­hav­iour that she dis­played to­wards her brother (Charles Sibiya), her mother (Ta­mary Sibiya) and my­self in Au­gust 2011 when we vis­ited her mother s house

’ in Nel­spruit.

Her brother had left the “kitchen door open as his hands were full. On his re­turn to fetch some items, the Ap­pli­cant (Uyanda) un­leashed a tor­rent of ver­bal abuse and I was con­vinced she was go­ing to hit him (the brother walks with a limp caused by a car ac­ci­dent).

Her brother firmly ex­plained “that he is dis­abled. When her mother and I in­ter“vened she told us to shut up,” adds Sisa in his af­fi­davit. Uyanda s publi­cist Simphiwe Ma­jola

’ says: My client has no knowl­edge of

“what you are talk­ing about. As a mat­ter of fact, she is hear­ing it from you for the first time.”
