Nduneni-Ngema said she suggested Mbongeni take Khumalo to her mother’s home in Daveyton so she could after her. “Leleti joined the rest of my family at our house and received care from my mother until she recovered and rejoined her fellow cast members”, she said.

But I was careful not to hit on her face. I also did not want to beat her on her legs. She had to go on stage and perform the following day. So with my stick, I concentrated on her body. She screamed, crying for mercy, crying for help. There was no mercy from me….. I beat her until she was silent”
She said when Ngema arrived, he intervened, beating her with the switch she had beaten Khumalo with. It was then she decided to end the marriage.
