Zimbabwe High Court Orders Arrest Of Two SA DJs Kabza And Maphorisa

Zimbabwe High Court Orders Arrest Of Two SA DJs Kabza And Maphorisa

The High Court in Bulawayo has ordered the arrest of South African artists DJ Maphorisa and Kabza De Small who performed in the city on Sunday night.

According to a court order seen by Pindula News, the DJs are to be held in prison until they are served with a summons for non-appearance at Victoria Falls Carnival, and refusal to refund.

The duo arrived in Zimbabwe on Sunday and are expected to fly back to South Africa later in the afternoon on Monday. Reads in part the order:


WHEREAS, an order was made by the Honourable Mr Justice Dube-Banda ordering arrest of the 1st and 2nd Respondents (Petrus Kabelo Botha and Themba Sonnyboy Sekowe) and committing them to prison to confirm jurisdiction of the Respondents.

NOW THEREFORE you are required and directed that you take PETRUS KABELO BOTHA and THEMBA SONNYBOY SEKOWE of which they are found in Zimbabwe and deliver them to the Keeper of the Gaol at Bulawayo Prison, together with a copy of this Writ, there to be safely kept until they are served with the summons against them issued by the High Court in Bulawayo for a claim in the sum of US$18 395.82 or have provided security in the sum of US$18 395.82 to the Sheriff of the High Court in Bulawayo, whichever occurs first.

AND Return you this writ with what you have done thereupon.

The duo, and Zimbabwean Sha Sha who is based in South Africa, didn’t for the Victoria Falls Carnival on 29 April this year despite being given everything they needed to travel. Reports suggest they had two shows in South Africa.

Day of the Carnival was set to kick off the celebrations with headliners DJ Maphorisa, Kabza De Small and Sha Sha, due to perform on the Pure Africa Sunset Cruise and at the main event later in the evening.

DJ Maphorisa, Kabza De Small and Sha Sha did not make their flights.

A month later, Sha Sha apologised. In a statement seen by Pindula News, ShaSha said she was working to atone for missing the show.

Noone sees anything wrong with what they did against the organisers of the Carnival but just being negative.If we were in the same shoes of being fleeced of $18k would we say the same?If it was the reverse would SA people be happy about the no show?lets jus be keyboard warriors without using our minds...
