In 2015, Lele shared horrific pictures of her badly bruised body after she was physically assaulted by a female metro police officer.

At the time, the actress was traveling with her son and nanny in Kyalami.

According to Sowetan Live, the court-case took place at the Randburg Magistrate Court where an emotional Lele was seen in tears after the judge found the metro police officer guilty of assault.


It is reported that the metro police officer - Trekkie Ayuk Tikhoni was found guilty of assault with intent to do grievous bodily harm and for another count of malicious damage to property.

According to the article, Lele was subjected to an-hour-and-a-half of beating and verbal abuse by Tikhoni who accused her of failing to stop at an intersection.

Lele expressed that this victory is not only for herself but the many people who have fallen victim to police brutality.

"This is not just about me. It's for the hundreds and thousands of other people in South Africa who have suffered at the hands of police officers," Ledwaba said.

"These are people who should protect us and, for her as a woman to do that to another woman, is just painful."
