Mthokozisi Ndaba to appear in court for alleged assault
Idols South Africa 2017 finalist Mthokozisi Ndaba was arrested towards the end of last week and then released on a warning, the Sunday Tribune can reveal.
Last week, Mthokozisi was briefly arrested on Thursday night before being released in the early hours of Friday.
Sergeant Mduduzi Zondo, a spokesperson for the police at the Hillbrow Police Station, said Mthokozisi would appear in court today on Monday on the assault charges leveled at him for the alleged assault of 21-year-old Neo Tsele, who was beaten allegedly with fists and slammed onto a wall at a Braamfontein apartment.

Mthokozisi last week called on his followers to take a stand against violence against women and children abuse.
“I plead with TeamMthokozisi & everyone to not attack the complainant on social media. We do not know what issues she may be dealing with. Please Mzansi. Let us continue taking a stand against violence on women and children (sic),” he said on Instagram this week.
Mthokozisi had previously lost Idols SA Season 13 to 17 year old Paxton Fielies who comes from Cape Town and stormed off the stage, failing to attend a planned media conference.
