Sunday World - - Sunday Report - By Thuso Magano and Ng­wako Malatji news@sun­day­

Busi­ness­woman and celebrity wed­ding plan­ner Glory Maseepe wil­lend herWomen’s Mon­thon abit­ter­note af­ter­she was hu­mil­i­ated when a busi­ness ri­val as­saulted her in public in Pre­to­ria this week.

Maseepe has since opened a case of as­sault at the Pre­to­ria Cen­tral po­lice sta­tion against an­other wed­ding plan­ner, Thapelo Mo­latudi.

The ugly in­ci­dent took place in broad day­light atthe­p­op­u­lar Sammy Marks Square shop­ping cen­tre on Wed­nes­day.

Sun­day World has seen a video that shows Mo­latudi stalk­ing Maseepe like prey be­fore grab­bing her and wrestling her to the ground.

In the video, Maseepe can be heard ask­ing Mo­latudi why she is as­sault­ing her but the lat­ter keeps ac­cus­ing Maseepe of hav­ing pushed her.

Maseepe did not de­fend her­self dur­ing the in­ci­dent but in­stead pleaded with the se­cu­rity guards to as­sist her.

“We were at­tend­ing a brief­ing ses­sion at the City of Tsh­wanewith the events man­age­ment depart­ment and Thapelo and her cousin knew that I would be at the meet­ing at Tsh­wane House.

“Af­ter she beat me up, they were boast­ing that they had sorted me out,” Maseep­e­said.

She said a man un­known to her had ap­proached her af­ter the in­ci­dent and asked her to re­solve the is­sues out of court.

“I can­not do that be­cause I have lost my dig­nity. Even though I am­feel­ing bet­ter now, I was trau­ma­tised by the inci- dent. I couldn’t sleepthat­night. Isus­tained in­juries on my back and my shoul­der is swollen,” she said.

Maseepe told Sun­day World they were friends­but their­beef started af­ter Mo­latudi opened her own events man­age­ment busi­ness. She said their fall­out had also spilt onto Face­book, where they had hurled in­sults at each other.

Mo­latudi de­nied they were ever friends, say­ing she had only met Maseepe once in Le­bowak­gomo, Lim­popo.

Mo­latudi said as she walked to­wards the un­der­ground park­ing at Sammy Marks Square, Maseepe had pushed her and pulled her by her jacket. “She was push­ing and in­sult­ing me. I was only de­fend­ingmy­self. Ialso wentto the po­lice sta­tion to re­port a case of in­tim­i­da­tion and threat against Glory be­cause she has hired hit­men to kill me.”

Sun­day World could not get com­ment­from the­p­o­lice­about the two cases, but an of­fi­cer privy to Maseepe’s case con­firmed an in­ves­ti­ga­tion was un­der way.
