A court case can take a toll on the parties involved. We understand how it might feel for some when they finally get to breathe a sigh of relief in the end. That’s the case for Mzansi’s power couple Basetsana and Romeo Kumalo as their court case with Jackie Phamotse came to an end.
Briefly reports, “On September 21, 2023, the court found Phamotse guilty on multiple counts, including Crimen injuria, Criminal Defamation, and Contempt of Court, following the damning claims she made about the Kumalos a few years ago.”
