Johannesburg - Singer Busisiwe "Cici" Twala appeared briefly in the Midrand Magistrate's Court on Thursday on counter charges of assault, laid against her by her ex-boyfriend Arthur Mafokate.

Twala appeared in court accompanied by her mother and several members of the Not In My Name campaign.

Twala laid assault charges against the kwaito star who in turn laid the same charges against her.

The case was postponed to November 27 for trial.

On Wednesday, September 19, Mafokate appeared in court in connection with a common assault charge.

His matter was postponed to November 3.

Twala's spokesperson and secretary-general of Not In My Name Themba Masango said she was in a "much stronger position".

"Just because you are a famous somebody it doesn't mean you can do what you want. We are here to make sure that he [Mafokate] goes to jail," he said.

"He must be like [former deputy minister of higher education Mduduzi] Manana and say 'I am guilty of what I have done' and face the consequences," Masango said.
