Isibaya Actress Zinhle Mabena Arrested And To Appear In Court Today After Attempting To Murder Her Husband
Estranged Isibaya Actress, Zinhle Mabena has been arrested on suspicion of attempting to kill her husband in a shooting that happened earlier this month.
Her husbands bodyguard died on the crossfire shooting, police reports say.
The actress, who is known for her role as the villainous Sihle on the just ended Isibaya is reported to have been at loggerheads with her husband, Mugabe Ngwenya leading to their separation just last month.
Last month, iHarare reported that Zinhle dropped her husband’s surname on social media and is now going by her maiden name, Mabena.
Not long after, Zinhle was exposed for being behind the accident which left 2 people dead and one paralyzed for life – but the actress was never charged. It is alleged that she overtook two cars in high speed before getting into an oncoming lane leading to the accident.
A month later on a separate incident, her husband was shot at by unknown hitmen at his home.
After some digging a recent 28th January incident, the Gauteng SAPS found evidence that she was responsible for that and have since arrested the actress on allegations of attempted murder of her husband and for being involved in the death his bodyguard.
“A 29-year old female suspect is set to make a first appearance in the Pretoria Magistrate Court on Wednesday, 17 February 2021 following her arrest on Tuesday, 16 February 2021, on suspicion of being involved in the attempted murder of her husband and the murder of the husband’s body guard,” read the statement by the Gauteng SAPS Spokesperson, Captain Kay Makhubele.
