Kwaito singer urged to seek help in anger management

The Department of Women has urged kwaito singer Mdu Masilela to seek professional help in anger management.
The plea follows an assault case opened against him by the mother of his eight month old baby, Sibahle Dlamini.

According to a media report, Masilela allegedly assaulted Dlamini on Saturday night. Dlamini opened a case against him at Sandringham Police Station in Johannesburg.

The star handed himself to the police and subsequently appeared in the Hillbrow Magistrate’s court, where he was released on a R500 bail.

Earlier this year, the kwaito star was arrested for allegedly threatening to kill his wife, Sarah Masilela.

He was charged for attempted murder stemming from an accusation that he pulled a gun on his wife and fired wildly in the air.

The department said that while Masilela has not been found guilty by any court of law, and without wanting to impugn his right to the due process of law, it is a matter of grave concern that Masilela has been embroiled in two controversies involving alleged physical violence against women.

“The Department of Women would like to urge Masilela and many more men like him to seek professional help in anger management.

“Furthermore, it also prudent to commend Dlamini and other women like her for breaking the silence. The department and the government would also like to urge other women who might be confronted with similar circumstances to be brave and come forward to seek help and report the matter to the police,” the department said.

Police are investigating a case of common assault against the star, who is expected to appear in court in November. – SAnews.gov.za
