The football club, based in Durban, has attempted to downplay the issue in an effort to safeguard both its image and Mabiliso’s reputation.

The AmaZulu communication desk has cited undisclosed injury as the reason for Mabiliso’s prolonged absence from training and match days.

Nevertheless, Sunday World, claims that through reliable sources, they have learned that the club was made aware of allegations that the PSL star had been subjecting his partner to physical abuse at their rented residence.

Despite efforts to conceal the matter, it seems the claims could not be ignored.

According to an insider:

“His assault on the poor lady has been going on for some time. Ever since he returned from a spell at Kaizer Chiefs at the beginning of the season, he has not been okay up his head.

“The frustration of failing to crack the starting line-up drove him mad, to the point that he started drinking excessively, and would take out his anger on his baby-mama.

“The lady couldn’t take it anymore and reported him to the club for protection.”

Facing a serious situation, AmaZulu conducted an internal investigation, and upon satisfaction with their findings, the club decided to suspend Mabiliso from all activities.

The source emphasized:

“Remember how AmaZulu take seriously the GBV issues, as they fired public relations officer Phumlani Dube in November last year for assault allegations on a female colleague.

“Mabiliso has since been removed from the players and technical team WhatsApp groups as a result of his misconduct.

“At this stage, his future at the club hangs by a thread because he’s not even playing regularly.”

History repeats itself in the PSL

This incident follows a similar case involving fellow PSL star Thembinkosi Lorch.

Lorch was arrested in 2022 and later found guilty by the Randburg magistrate’s court in June 2023 for assaulting his girlfriend Fundiswa Mathithibala.

Thembinkhosi Lorch was found guilty of assaulting his girlfriend.

Thembinkhosi Lorch was found guilty of assaulting his girlfriend.

Lorch received a suspended jail sentence, a fine of R100,000, and was declared unfit to possess a firearm under the Firearms Control Act.

During the trial, state prosecutor Michele Hart argued that the medical evidence supported the complainant’s testimony.

She said:

“The accused did not have any injuries, which meant that he was the aggressor. The accused and his witness did not create a good impression in court and appeared to be not credible witnesses.”
