Giyani- Bambeni Village born Radio DJ, and the erstwhile Mughana Lonene FM Reggae DJ, Junior Zitha well-known to his fans as MystikJ could face charges of assault and kidnapping.



Giyani View has been reliably informed that Zitha last Tuesday has persuaded an alleged mentally disturbed patient, Rennie Mabunda to go watch soccer with him from Bambeni High School Sports Facilities when he [Zitha] allegedly kidnapped Mabunda until the following day, Wednesday morning when he was rescued by residents in the nearby bushes of Bambeni village just outside Giyani town.

Mabunda was said to have been rescued by residents after his family reported him missing. It is believed that Zitha assaulted Mabunda with a hammer and other objects.

“Upon police arrival, an ambulance was called to the scene and Mabunda was taken to Nkhensani Hospital for further medical treatment.

“His head was bruised and the allegations that Zitha used a hammer to assault Mabunda are found to be true.”  Claimed our source from Giyani SAPS.

He further detailed that Zitha hasn’t been arrested for the crime since his status of mental fitness is still in question.

“Zitha will go for mental health evaluation before his day to appear on the dock is decided. At this stage, it’s not yet clear why Zitha kidnapped Mabunda.” Concluded our source.
