He said on arrival at the house, he saw Zinhle allegedly trying to stab Robert with a pair of scissors.
“I took the scissors away from her,” reads the statement. Buda further alleged that Robert jumped into his BMW 118 to escape from his wife. The security said in his statement, broke the driver’s side mirror, got into the car and tried to confiscate the car keys from Robert.

According to the paper Robert Ngwenya, in a statement, also alleges that his wife attacked him with a perfume bottle, a mirror and moered him. In a statement he wrote in June last year, he said he returned home from work and found that his clothes were strewn all over the house.
“She started to push me and I was off balance and fell down the stairs,” he said. He added that the actress then beat him after he got up.
“She followed me to the bedroom, I didn’t see her when she got inside, I only realized when I turned back because I heard something beating me on the head. When I checked I found that is my wife who beat me with a glass frame [mirror]. The mirror broke and fell down,” reads his statement.
He also said the popular actress unleashed a flurry of klaps and fists until the helpers, who were in the house, came to his rescue.
