Radio and TV personality “Bujy” Bikwa (33) was recently booked and charged for assault with intent to cause grievous bodily harm after allegedly throwing a glass at 31-year-old media personality Boity Thulo.
This resulted in Boity being injured on the face after an argument broke out at a hotel in Midrand Johannesburg.
Boity Thulo was immediately rushed to the hospital after a physical altercation broke out between her and Bujy Bikwa.
Witnesses say that Boity and Bujy engaged in an animated discussion on ancestors and sangomas.
“They were drinking and talking about sangomas and ancestors before an argument started. I am not sure who started it but they were screaming at each other and swearing before they started fighting.” said a witness.
After being held in custody at the Johannesburg Correctional Centre, Bujy was granted R2 000 bail at the Midrand Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday and warned by the court not to tamper with investigations.
Boity has since addressed the incident in a statement saying she is following the case with keen interest.
“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).
