The former Isibaya actress took to the streets, outside Randburg Magistrates court together with gender based violence activists. This is where her case will be handled and a protection order will be decided upon.
Starting off her statement, Enhle said she wants to “…put an end to the cycle of abuse that I have continued to face at his (Nathi Maphumulo) commission.” Enhle said they tried to keep everything within the marriage, but according to her the abuse has been ongoing, putting the blame on her fear.
“I am no longer fearful, and it is with this renewed sense of self that I wish to recount the numerous incidents on which he has beaten, berated, rendered me broken and unworthy,” wrote the mother of two.
Enhle then reveals that the extent to which Black Coffee allegedly abused her, as well as his unfaithfulness, caused her to be a victim of depression. She then got admitted to a facility, “I have within the marriage…endured gaslighting, emotional, verbal abuse, physical abuse and financial abuse at his behest. The extent of the turmoil I experienced in the marriage as a result of the abuse and the extra marital affairs were so severe that I was admitted into a facility and was treated for depression.”
What’s also shocking is that she revealed he apparently laid hands on her in front of their children. “The last (5) years have been filled with pain and my children have been the unfortunate witnesses to these incidents of abuse in our home.
“Below are examples of incidents of abuse that have taken place:
• In 2014 at our previous residence, he struck me several times in our bedroom
• In 2019 after his Music is King event at our new residence, he threw a bag at my face during an argument
• Guests at my 33rd birthday celebration witnessed him attack me,” wrote Enhle.
