Boity Tenders A Statement About Being A Victim of Physical Assault:
Reports from yesterday claimed that South African television personality Boitumelo Thulo was physically assaulted following an altercation with Radio Producer and Podcaster Bujy Bikwa.
The incident allegedly took place at the Courtyard Hotel in Midrand on Thursday evening following an argument. It is said that Bujy threw a bottle of alcohol at Boity which landed her in hospital.
This morning, Thulo addressed the reports through an official statement from her camp. She did confirm that she was assaulted and that she has opened a case against the culprit. She has asked for some privacy during this unfortunate time in her life and has left the matter in the hands of the Criminal Justice System.
It is with deep sadness to state that I was indeed an unfortunate victim of a vicious physical assault and I have since opened a case against the culprit., which I am following with a keen interest. I do not wish to comment on the matter any further (at this time).
I respectfully request some space as I try to find a way to heal both physically and emotionally from this traumatic experience.
I have all the faith in our Criminal Justice System and implore everyone to stand firmly against GBV.
Back in May, on the 2nd episode of his podcast on Mac G’s network. Bujy was slammed for having Banzi Obie Mavuso who is allegedly an “outed abuser” as one of his guests.
A tweep by the handle @Landawillie to call the podcast out.
“Guys, I’m so SICK AND TIRED Of Obie Mavuso speaking about me every chance she can get for the cloud! I’m SICK AND TIRED of this woman telling people LIES about me! An entire platform with gay men giving this VILE PERSON a chance to explain WHY SHE USED TO BEAT TO A PULP
“The ONLY reason I outed her on here was because she STALKED ME! TRIED TO KILL ME! AND THREATENED TO GO TO PLACE OF WORK TO FURTHER ABUSE ME! I am so SICK of you problematic men, queers, and “Allies”! If you’re not killing women, you’re given platforms to ABUSERS to do so!”
She further stated that should anything happen to her people should know that Obie did it and that Bujy gave her a platform.
“The ONLY WAY you all “believe woman” is when she’s cold in a f*cking morgue!!!!! Maybe you wouldn’t have given an OUTED ABUSER a platform to EXPLAIN why she abused me if she actually killed me and my whole life was reduced to nothing but a fucking hashtag!
“If ANYTHING happens to me, know that OBIE “KANII” Mavuso DID IT. Know that @Bujy & @podcastwithmacg gave her a platform to further harass me. & know that they were all sitting around a table laughing with my abuser about how she abused me! @womenforchange5 @ntsikimazwai.”
