However in a shocking twist of event, Mbali’s family now alleges that she got back with her ex-boyfriend who was remanded in custody till date. It is alleged that she has fallen in love with him again and cannot go further with testifying in court.
According to Gauteng police spokesperson, Captain Mavela Masondo the court has since issued a warrant of arrest for Mbali. Daily Sun reported;
“According to information received, she lives at the suspect’s home in Kranskop, KZN.”
One of Mbali’s relatives told the publication that she had a change of heart when she started talking to her boyfriend while in custody. The family member said;
“It’s the right thing to do. I don’t know what’s got into her. She decided to love the man who took her mum away. It’s shocking.”
