Author and social activist Jackie Phamotse shed light on media personality Somizi Mhlongo‘s criminal record of a sexual nature on Showmax’s documentary Somizi & Mohale: End of the Road which premiered on Thursday 25 August.


While many Tweeps are tired of Somizi Mhlongo and Mohale Motaung’s divorce, Showmax is still pumping out content. The pair’s divorce has been covered in season five of Living the Dream with Somizi and Mohale: On The Record. Showmax has taken this one step further with a documentary on the couple – Somizi and Mohale: End of the Road.

After a snippet of the infamous audio clips leaked by Sunday World was played, Jackie Phamotse brought up the media personality’s criminal record. She said that the Idols SA judge has a criminal record of a sexual nature while Mohale does not. Jackie went on to say that she believes the Idols SA judge hit Mohale.

“Do I believe that he hit him? Yes. Mohale had sad eyes most of the time. Sad eyes that he is there, but he’s not there (which you can see) in his eyes,” she said.

“My mind said to do research, background checks on both of them. I came across some criminal records that Somizi has, of sexual nature. And I looked at Mohale, he doesn’t have that,” she continued.

The Sowetan reported the court found that the media personality had fondled Celani Njapha’s private parts in his Lonehill home after offering him a lift on Rivonia Road in November 2007. 

The media personality was sentenced to four months imprisonment or a R6000 fine. 

Tweeps have not forgotten about this. Take a look…

“Now the same men who always say “let’s wait for the courts to decide” are saying Somizi’s sexual assault case was long ago.. Lol men will never ever want to take accountability,” wrote @Nampree.

“Somizi’s sexual assault conviction is coming back to haunt him cos most of us thought he won that case. Anyone know if he successfully appealed the conviction? Cos if not then he about lose a lot,” wrote @JesseFJacobs.
