The River’s Presley Chweneyagae speaks out after arrest for beating up Wife

Actor Presley Chweneyagae has been busted by cops after his wife reported him.

He faces a common assault charge after his wife opened a case against him two weeks ago.

According to him he argued with his wife over a car after she refused to give him the keys to attend a work commitment.

“I left her after taking the keys. The next thing, I got a call from the police that a case has been opened against me. ”

There was no assault on her or myself. I followed the relevant protocols by handing myself over to the police, with whom I am co-operating.” Presley said he was not a violent man or husband and this was the first incident to take place in his home.

“GBV and femicide is a big problem in our country. I take it very seriously and would not wish it on anyone, male or female. I have previously been active on awareness of such issues and will continue to do so in my personal and professional lives. As husband and wife, we do have disagreements. More than anything, she is my wife and the mother of my children, and I have a great respect for her. It is just unfortunate we find ourselves in this situation. The matter is with the law enforcement agencies and I wouldn’t want to comment further for the sake of my family.”

In a statement seen by Dailysun which the wife gave to the police, Presley allegedly assaulted her.
