Police have confirmed to TMG Entertainment that well-known actor Tumisho Masha has been released on bail of R1‚000 and will appear in court next month‚ following his arrest last Thursday on charges of assault.
Gauteng police spokesperson Captain Mavela Masondo confirmed to TMG Entertainment that the star was released on bail after his arrest and appearance in the Randburg Magistrate’s Court last Friday.
“Tumisho Masha‚ 41 years old‚ was arrested on September 15 2016 and released on R1‚000 bail‚” an official statement from Masondo read.
It is alleged that the actor had assaulted his wife at the couple’s home on July 20. His wife then applied for a protection order against him at the Randburg Magistrate’s Court‚ which was granted on the same day.
According to officials‚ Tumisho’s wife visited the Douglasdale police station on September 14 to lay a charge of assault against the actor‚ one day before he was set to appear in court for an enquiry into the protection order.
He was arrested the following day at the Randburg Magistrate’s Court on a charge of assault‚ and made an appearance on the charge the next day.
His case has since been postponed to October 10.
Tumisho took to Instagram last week to open up about living as a celebrity and making mistakes.
“Just because I’m a celebrity doesn’t mean I don’t make mistakes. Just coz (because) I’m on tv doesn’t mean I’m not real and just coz (because) I’m smiling doesn’t mean I don’t hurt‚” he wrote.
