Businessman Peter-Paul Ngwenya will appear in the Randburg Magistrate's Court on Wednesday after he contravened a protection order obtained by Investec chairperson Fani Titi.

Ngwenya, who spent almost five years on Robben Island during apartheid, faces a charge of crimen injuria after he called Titi a k****r in an SMS meant for Titi's business partner Aqueel Patel.

TimesLive reported that Ngwenya had stormed into Titi's business premises and threatened to kill him and his business associates.

Titi then reportedly got a protection order, which prohibited Ngwenya from making direct or indirect contact with him.

Titi and Ngwenya had a friendship that dated back 20 years, but the relationship fell apart when a business deal went south.

According to Ngwenya, Titi owes him almost R54m. The conflict ultimately resulted in Ngwenya calling Titi a "QwaQwa k****r" and a "bantustan boss" in an SMS.
