Dec 3, 2021

Actor and radio personality Mohale Motaung stands in solidarity with actress Amanda du Pont after she claimed Jub Jub raped her via an Instagram post on 2 December. 


Actress Amanda du Pont claimed Jub Jub raped her for two years as well as emotionally and physically abused her. This was after the Uyajola 9/9 host did an interview on Podcast And Chill with MacG. He said that he “smashed” Amanda which deeply upset her. 

Mohale Motaung, along with many other celebrities, tweeted their support for the actress after the rape claims surfaced. 

“I believe Amanda Du Pont,” he tweeted.

I believe Amanda Du Pont.

Mohale’s estranged husband and media personality Somizi Mhlongo then began to trend on Twitter. This because Mohale accused Somizi of physically and psychologically abusing him in audio clips that were leaked in August this year.

Tweeps think Jub Jub needs to be cancelled like Somizi. 

And that’s thousand steps back is so painful. Jub Jub must get what’s coming for him. Somizi has lost so much for what he did to Mohale. Same thing must happen to uJailbird he’s no special. https://t.co/uPKAsUtiZN

Selective criticism is the reason why GBV will not be solved. Some idiots even defend an offender simply because he’s their fave artist/he hosts their fave TV show. Watch them say Moja Love must reinstate Jub Jub at #Uyajola99 the same way they said Somizi must return to #idolssa

If we are being honest cancel culture doesn’t work.

-Somizi will be back
-Jub Jub has been back and this will blow over and he’ll be back again.
-As for MacG it didn’t work when they tried to remove him.

Amanda claimed that Jub Jub raped her after she told him she was a virgin who was waiting for marriage. She said that she fell pregnant with his child but had an abortion because she refused to have a child who was given to her forcefully. 

“I had an abortion of course because there was absolutely no way I would have a child that was forcefully given to me,” she said.

“The most painful part of all of this was that I was a virgin and I told him at the time. I told Jub Jub at the time that I was a virgin and I planned to be a virgin until the time I got married,” she continued.

She went on to say that she did not leave Jub Jub because she saw a picture of him and Kelly Khumalo like he claimed. The actress alleged that Jub Jub tried to kill her.

“So it is not true, I didn’t leave because I saw a picture. I left because he tried to kill me and I have always been afraid to leave because of the treats that were made but at that moment where he tried to kill me I knew the very thing I was afraid of, which was dying… I knew was meant to happen that day and I actually got away,” she added.
