TV actress, presenter, and businesswoman Boity Thulo, has reportedly dropped the assault charge against TV host, Bujy Bikwa.
In 2021, Boity opened a case of assault with intent to do grievous bodily harm at the Midrand police station against Bikwa, following a nasty brawl at a hotel in Midrand, north of Joburg.
Boity was injured in the incident and required surgery to repair her face. South Africans canceled Bikwa, and as a result, he was unable to secure employment. In 2023, it appears like the two have come to an amicable agreement during a mediation session at the Midrand magistrate’s court, on Monday.
Speaking to TshishaLIVE, Bikwa said they have smoked the peace pipe and have moved on.
“We hugged, we spoke, and we are okay. We both agreed we are going to move on and be civil towards one another. I’m at peace, we are both at peace. I think it’s a lesson learned from me I think from both of us.”
“With this experience, I went through it and learned so much from it. Now I am now able to be a better advocate for no violence.” Bikwa said the occurrences drove him to depression and other issues, but he has learned his lessons.
“This thing broke me. Going through depression and suffering from social anxiety was the hardest thing I’ve had to go through. It’s been a year. I had to do my own healing. The silence for me was very important for my sanity. I don’t have anything to hide.
“I had to forgive myself and what had happened because at some point you don’t forgive yourself, thinking you should have walked away… There are so many emotions. If you sit in this hole you’re going to die in it. I never thought I’d be in such a situation.”
“I don’t want to pretend that I’m fine when deep down inside my soul is crashing, and being in that space can be very overwhelming. Socially, if it’s not work-related I struggle but slowly and surely I am trying to adjust.”
Speaking to Nkululeko Nkewu in the “Nkululeko n Culture” podcast recently, Bikwa debunked claims that he hit Boity in the face with a bottle.
He said: “I regret that day … what was I doing there? I keep asking myself, why didn’t I go home?”
“I have never hit anyone with a bottle of champagne and I have never stabbed anyone.
