Phuzekhemisi to be charged with murder?

Jan 29, 2019, 11:00 AM

This year is proving to be a very challenging year for two of South African artists.

Pitch Black Afro has been charged with premeditated murder and defeating the ends of justice, while on the other hand, maskhandi legend,   Phuzekhemisi Mnyandu might also find himself behind bars for many years to come.

In December, it was alleged that the maskhandi artist shot a band member who later died in hospital. Police spokesperson Lt-Col Thulani Zwane, confirmed to Sowetan Live: "Phuzekhemisi will face a murder charge since the victim died after he got bail."

According to the publication, Mnyandu will face a murder charge when he appears in the Durban Magistrate Court on 15 February.

Police officials further informed the publication that Mnyandu shot the 35-year-old member in the chest and stomach after the two men had engaged in an argument on the 9 December, 2018.

Mnyandu has had a long a prolific career that has seen him win many awards and travel across the world. However, his career may come to an abrupt halt should the justice system slap him with a heavy sentence.

The maskandi singer is currently out on R3 000 bail.
