Footballer bashes girlfriend's friend for sleeping with 'nearly all his teammates'

Footballer bashes girlfriend's friend for sleeping with 'nearly all his teammates'

31-year-old Highlanders Football Club's star, Mthulisi Maphosa, beat up his girlfriend Nobuhle Nkomo's friend, Amanda Mbuisa, and her boyfriend, Bongani Rabvu, accusing Mbuisa of sleeping with 'three quarters' of his teammates.

He accused the alleged bed-hopping Mbuisa of being a bad influence on Nkomo.

Appearing before Western Commonage magistrate Tancy Dube, Maphosa said he once bedded Mbuisa, 22, whom he claimed had also slept with nearly all the Highlanders FC players.

Maphosa said he assaulted Mbuisa because she was influencing his girlfriend into prostitution.

The footballer initially pleaded guilty, but his plea was altered to not guilty after he denied assaulting them using bricks.

Highlanders is battling reports of rampant indiscipline among players, with claims suggesting that some players indulge in drug abuse and binge drinking.

The court heard that during the night of October 4, Maphosa was waiting for Nkomo at her place of residence in Mpopoma suburb when she arrived home in a car at around 11PM in the company of Mbuisa and her boyfriend, Rabvu.

Maphosa flew into a rage and asked Mbuisa what she was doing with his girlfriend so late in the night.



He then accused Mbuisa of being a prostitute and a bad influence on his girlfriend before attacking them.

The two sustained serious facial injuries and were referred to hospital.

Testifying, Mbuisa said Maphosa always assaults his girlfriend and had turned her into a "punching bag".

"Maphosa always assaults Nkomo and she even wants to file a protection order against him. She's scared to report the abuse to the police but he beats her almost every time. Maphosa also said he's gone through worse than assault cases and is not afraid of the police," she said.

Maphosa was remanded out of custody to today for sentencing.

This is not the first time that Maphosa has been caught on the wrong side of the law.

In 2011, the footballer was arrested for attempted murder after stabbing a soldier but the matter was later settled out of court.

Last year, he was involved in a bar brawl where he reportedly hit bouncers with a baton stick and has also faced allegations of assaulting his mother.

A guilty conviction would most likely spell the end of Maphosa's time at Highlanders, and possibly his career.
