Drama seems to be no surprise anymore for accused Kwaito legend Arthur Mafokate, who is reportedly facing double the trouble after a new charge was raised against him.
Spectators and the media at the Midrand Magistrate Court were left in shock on Friday when the lawyer of R&B singer Cici demanded that her former boyfriend Arthur Mafokate be further charged with negligence and reckless driving.
Mafokate appeared briefly in court for charges of assault with intent to do grievous bodily harm laid by the award-winning songstress after she alleged that he dragged her with his car and she broke her pelvic bones when she fell to the ground.
It is alleged that the NPA begrudgingly acceded to the lawyer’s request and asked the investigating officer to conduct further investigations to establish the possibility of adding the charge.
Gauteng NPA spokeswoman Phindi Mjonondwana said: “The accused has not yet pleaded to the charge before him so nothing stops the NPA from adding further charges to the charge sheet.
“The investigating officer has been asked to conduct further investigations and once the investigations have been concluded and we are satisfied with new information received, then we could possibly add further charges.”
