South African women took to social media on Tuesday 31 August to celebrate the National Prosecuting Authority’s (NPA) decision to drop DJ Fresh (Thato Sikwane) and Euphonik’s (Themba Nkosi) crimen injuria case against Nampree.

The popular radio personalities opened the case in April 2021 to clear their names after they were accused by a woman known by her Twitter handle @nampree of drugging and raping her back in 2011.

Nampree’s rape case against the DJs was also dropped by the NPA earlier this year (February 2021) due to insufficient evidence.

NPA spokesperson Lumka Mahanjana confirmed the news to The Citizen:

The NPA is of the view that there are no prospects of a successful criminal prosecution.

The Attorney’s have been informed accordingly.

Nampree’s legal organisation also confirmed the NPA’s decision on Twitter yesterday (31 August)

We welcome this decision and stand firmly against the use of such charges in silencing victims/survivors.

Nampree herself stated that she can now start speaking her mind and tweeted that South Africa is hell on her Twitter account yesterday.

Media personalities Penny Lebyane and Ntsiki Mazwai who’ve been supporting Nampree since she came forward with the rape allegations congratulated her on Twitter.

Euphonik and DJ Fresh released statements on their social media accounts in February and maintained that the rape allegations against them were always false.

NPA spokesperson Phindi Mjonondwane confirmed that the prosecutor decided to not prosecute due to lack of evidence.

Primedia Broadcasting home of 94.7 radio station cut ties with the DJs in January 2021 after it was revealed that the company and the pair reached a mutual decision.
