Reality TV star and multi-millionaire Shauwn "MaMkhize" Mkhize, has been dragged on social media for allegedly enabling his son Andile Mpisane, who is under fire after being exposed for allegedly abusing his baby mama.

Andile is accused of domestic violence by his baby mama Sithelo Shozi. The influencer and DJ claimed he assaulted her in front of his family. In an Instagram rant on Tuesday evening, Sithelo said she had to endure multiple forms of abuse in their much-publicized relationship, saying that Andile beat her to a pulp and caused her miscarriage.

Sithelo went on to share gruesome images of her battered and bruised face.MaMkhize has since broken her silence before her son, she released a statement refuting the abuse allegations levelled against his son. “I have been made aware of allegations made against my son, Andile Mpisane by Sithole Shozi on her Instagram account,” the statement reads.   

She continued, “I do not take lightly these accusations given my history and strong stance against gender-based violence. I do not and will never condone violence in any form or nature.”   

The businesswoman said she has never witnessed Sithelo being abused by Andile nor her family. “I would like to categorically state that neither myself nor my family have been witness to any alleged abuse. These allegations are false and defamatory.” 

She said she will be seeking legal action: “Given the nature, severity, and extent of these allegations, the matter has been referred to our legal team. It’s of the utmost importance that the law takes its course," she concluded.

Twitter users are outraged by MaMkhize's statement and they are accusing her of defending her son. It is clear that Sithelo's fans stand behind her and are prepared to fight for her until justice is served.

@Tumee_M_ tweeted "Mamkhize 's statement screams enabler. Not once did she address her son threatening to call a hit on sithelo or even him refusing for her to see her child. All she cares about are allegations because y'all made her think she's some sort of a celebrity."

@LeePakatwana tweeted "Can we fight for Sithelo please. People can’t keep on winning because they have money What about us poor South African Women #Mamkhize #sithelo."

@MapulaMokgosang "This is what most families do when it comes to issues of abuse. They protect their own even when there is prima facie evidence. #Mamkhize  should not use her financial muscles to bully the victim into silence."

@luhle_mthethwa tweeted "Mamkhize is doing exactly what I expected her to do and that is to defend her son and use lawyers as her defence mechanism #AndileMpisane #Mamkhize."
