Lorch’s Past Legal Troubles

in November last year, Lorch received a suspended sentence and a R100,000 fine for assaulting his ex-girlfriend, Fundiswa Nokuphiwa Mathithibala, in September 2020. The Randburg Magistrates Court also deemed him unfit to possess a firearm under the Firearms Control Act.

Lorch faced charges and was convicted of assault with intent to cause grievous bodily harm for strangling and hitting Mathithibala in 2020. Mathithibala recounted that Lorch returned home late one night, and when she inquired about his whereabouts, an argument ensued. Lorch then allegedly slapped, strangled, and pinned her to the ground.
