It has not even been two weeks since actress Busi Lurayi was sentenced to house arrest and she has already been dealt another legal blow.
Busi tried to gag her ex-lover Mziwoxolo from talking about her on social media after her called her a criminal on his Facebook page. She tried to file a protection order, but the Randburg Magistrate’s Court dismissed her application, saying it was free speech.
In her application, she told that court that him saying things about her on social media could result in her losing work. Yesterday the same court dismissed her application for a protection order against Mziwoxolo.
In October he wrote on his Facebook that she was a criminal, after she was sentenced to theft in September. In 2015 she took off with Mziwoxolo’s Samsung fridge and TV, mattresses, a microwave, pots, carpet, bedding, a couch, a baby feeding chair and a washing machine.
Earlier this month, Busi was sentenced to house arrest, community service and R48 000 for theft or 2 years’ imprisonment, suspended for five years for the 2015 theft.
The former City Ses’la actress is also required to pay Mziwoxolo R20 000 in installments of R1 000 into his FNB account before December 5, and before the 5th every month consecutively until she has paid in full.
For the duration of her sentence, she has to do 16 hours of community service.
