The never-ending troubles for Gqom Queen, Babes Wodumo continues as she and her sister, Nondumiso Simelane have been found guilty of contempt of court and fined R1,000.
The sisters alongside another Gqom act, Tipsy, appeared at the Durban Magistrate’s Court on Monday after a warrant for their arrest was issued on Friday for failure to appear on a common assault charge.
Babes Wodumo and her sister were eventually arrested in Durban on Monday.
Even though the sisters presented a defense of car trouble, they weren’t spared the guilty verdict with Magistrate Jackie Jonck firmly of the belief no one was above the law.
“The court can understand cars break down, but I cannot understand why they didn’t present themselves after the car was fixed at 11:30am because the warrant had not been issued yet,” the magistrate said.
On her part, Tipcee whose real name is Thobeka Ndaba got off with a warning because she presented a note from a doctor.
Even though the assault case has now been adjourned until April 24, all three women have been ordered to present themselves to the Umbilo police station every Tuesday.
This latest case continues in a long list of personal, PR, legal and professional drama for Babes Wodumo which we detailed in an editorial titled “Of Public Trust and Babes Wodumo’s Endless Excuses.”
