TV star Tumisho Masha’s wife, Zozibini Mtongana, has reportedly accused him of being a drug junkie, a drunkard and an irresponsible father.
Sunday World reports that Masha allegedly kicked Zozibini in the stomach, slapped her in the face, pulled her by her hair, hit her with an elbow and called her a b***h in a series of domestic violence episodes at their Dainfern, Joburg, home.
Masha also smashed his wife’s phone when she tried to call police to come to her rescue during one of their squabbles – reports he confirmed to the paper.
He, however, denied abusing her.
Masha’s PR rep released a statement, saying Mtongana took out an interim protection order against him as a result of the family dispute.
“Mr Masha is committed to resolving the issues at hand in the best possible way, for the sake of their daughter. He remains a committed father to their lovely daughter and regardless of how matters will unfold, his daughter will remain his top priority,” reads the statement.
