The singer who sustained serious injuries after Arthur dragged her for an approximate 300-400 meters with his car during an altercation went on to sue Arthur for millions. It's been an ongoing never ending court battle between the two, but yesterday, the verdict was finally handed dow. The Midrand Magistrate's court found Arthur Mafokate not guilty of assaulting his ex girlfriend CiCi.

A media statement released by Nakeng Attorneys - who are Arthur's legal representatives - confirmed his acquittal.

The statement read: “We confirm that we were acting on behalf of Mr Arthur Mafokate in the assault matter which was preferred against him by his ex-girlfriend Ms Busisiwe “Cici” Thwala in 2017 after a dispute at his house. Our client has maintained his innocence throughout the entire ordeal; including protracted court case.

"Yesterday the Midrand Magistrate’s Court acquitted Mr Arthur Mafokate of the above mentioned matter of assault.”

The legal battle had dragged on for over a year, with Arthur opening counter assault charges; claiming he was the one subjected to physical assault. However, last month, Cici was found not guilty of those charges.
