Durban - Gqom musician Bongekile "Babes Wodumo" Simelane has opened a case of assault at the Westville Police Station in Durban.
ANC Women's League Young Women's Desk supported Simelane and accompanied her to the police station.
Earlier on Monday, police confirmed that a docket of inquiry had been opened into the alleged assault by Babes' boyfriend Mandla "Mampintsha" Maphumulo.
Police are investigating a video showing Maphumulo repeatedly hitting Simelane. Calls mounted for Maphumulo's arrest as the video, an Instagram live stream shared by Simelane, drew the ire of people around the country and the world.
National police spokesperson Brigadier Vishnu Naidoo confirmed to IOL that an inquiry docket had been opened.
