Babes Wodumo and sister’s failure to appear in court results to R1000 fine

Gqom star and her sister was
ordered to pay R1,000 fine or 30 days in jail for failure to appear in court in connection to their assault case and were also found guilty of contempt of court.

A warrant for their arrest was issued on Friday and the two, alongside Afrotainment artist, Tipcee, appeared in the Durban Magistrate’s Court on Monday.

   
  

However, they couldn’t make the appearance in court on Monday and the Simelane sisters told the court that they were unable to make the appearance because they had car trouble on their way back to Durban from Pietermaritzburg.

Magistrate Jackie Jonck didn’t buy their excuse saying that “no one is above the law, even artists”.

“The court can understand cars break down, but I cannot understand why they didn’t present themselves after the car was fixed at 11:30am because the warrant had not been issued yet,” said Jonck.

The case was remanded until April 24 for the common assault charges relating to an incident that occurred in March.
