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.
