Basetsana Kumalo takes Jackie to court
Former Miss South Africa Basetsana Kumalo and her husband Romeo took author Jackie Phamotse to court. In 2018 Jackie tweeted that she overheard a TV mogul and former Miss SA pleading with one of her friends not to release a video of her husband involved in a sexual act with a male celebrity. Basetsana and her husband said Jackie was referring to them and opened a case of crimen injuria against her. Jackie had been instructed by the court not to write or tweet anything by the court. But Jackie had included that tweet about them in her book I Tweet What I Like, So Sue Me which is the reason why they were back in court again.
During cross examination Basetsana said the media refers to her as a media mogul and said she deserved the title as she has 10 TV shows, a production house and over 200 staff members. When asked if she was the only Miss SA Basetsana said she was the only Miss SA in 1994. She went on to ask the magistrate to protect her from Jackie’s lawyer who wasn’t allowing her to finish her sentences, raising his voice and pointing fingers at her. According to Mzansi.com Jackie’s lawyer and Basetsana’s exchanges were highly entertaining and dramatic.
