AFTER-9 EXPOSÉ AND A BROKEN NOSE ’
‘ ‘ ’
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.”
