The former Mamelodi Sundowns player, who was released on R5,000 bail, was involved in a physical altercation with his girlfriend over a microwave, leading to charges of common assault and domestic violence.

The incident has raised concerns about the prevalence of domestic violence in the country and the need for urgent action to address the issue.

Domestic violence is a serious offence, and it is important for the legal system to send a strong message that such behavior will not be tolerated.

In a statement to Scrolla.Africa, a source close to the couple revealed that the argument over the microwave escalated into a physical fight, leading to Phakamani’s arrest.

The source also mentioned that the girlfriend initially wanted to drop the charges, but the court refused, emphasizing the severity of domestic violence.

Phakamani Mahlambi, who was once hailed as a football prodigy by coach Gavin Hunt, has had a turbulent career, marked by controversy both on and off the pitch.

His recent arrest has added to the scrutiny surrounding his behavior, following allegations of faking his age.

The 27-year-old player started his career with Bidvest Wits and later joined African giants Al Ahly before moving to Sundowns.

While he has shown glimpses of his talent on the field, his off-field issues have overshadowed his footballing abilities.
