The sexual assault case against Radio Personalities and DJs Fresh and Euphonik has reportedly been reopened.

According to City Press, the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) has decided to reopen the case against the popular DJs.

The accuser's legal representation Brenda Madumise-Pajibo told the publication, “We’re waiting to hear the reason they’ve decided to reopen it. Remember that once the DJs announced on Twitter that the NPA had decided not to prosecute, we launched a formal dispute and grievance against the police. They then undertook to investigate what had transpired with the case.

“We’ve been very consistent. We’ve also taken up this dispute with the Public Protector. We suspect that because the Public Protector is going to ask questions, the police have decided to say they’re reopening the case. However, they still haven’t responded to us.”

The accuser has also taken to her social media to celebrate. She thanked her followers for their support.
Last year DJ Fresh and Euphonik released a joint statement on social media, confirming that the charges against them were dropped due to insufficient evidence.

"We are pleased to state that, after considering all the evidence collected while investigating the claim made by Ms. Madikizela against us, the Chief Prosecutor has dismissed the allegation on the basis that the allegations are without merit,

"The docket has been marked nolle prosequi. As we've said before these are false allegations and we are deeply saddened that GBV, a serious crisis in South Africa, was weaponized in this manner, "reads the statement.

@Nampree had accused the DJs of drugging and sexually assaulting her and three other women. On her Twitter thread, the Twitter user said she was not sure if she was raped by both of the DJs because she was completely drugged when the incident happened.

 Meanwhile, DJ Fresh told IOL at the time that he did not know the accuser and her friends. He said, “I am aware that assertions have been made about me on social media and I understand that this is often the price of being in the public eye. The fact that these claims are untrue and from an unknown source, does not make them less hurtful,

“I am deeply concerned that spurious allegations about Gender-Based Violence, especially as it is one of the most significant societal challenges in South Africa, undermine the gravity of legitimate incidents, and impact the urgency with which they are attended. Each time someone succumbs to the temptation of using GBV to further personal agendas, the cause to eradicate this scourge takes a step backward.“
