Mangaliso Ngema, a South African actor best known for his roles in the popular series Vehicle 19, has been arrested over the rape allegations of his own biological sister and has denied her claims through an Instagram post.
Last week, the ex-generations star took to social media in order to discuss the claims after his arrest. In the statement, he states that his sister has psychotic behaviours.
Mangaliso Ngema was released from jail on R5,000 bail after appearing at the Randburg Magistrate’s Court last Thursday.
According to sources, Mangaliso Ngema was arrested because his sister blamed he had raped her non-stop at his Johannesburg home for two years.
The woman also blames her brother for sexually assaulting her after her miscarriage and whilst his own wife was not in the country.
However, Mangaliso Ngema has rubbished his sister, not naming his sister due to legal reasons; Mangaliso shared a picture of her on his Instagram page.
He posted his version of events: “Friends and family, it is with deep sadness that I share this post. Many of you have seen the upsetting news about my sister and her allegations. Please be knowledgeable that it is not true.”
Later, Mangaliso claimed that his sister was “not well” and indicated that she had fabricated her allegations.
He continued: “My sister is not doing well in terms of health since the end of April this year, even though she was admitted to the hospital for psychotic behaviour, but she herself refused to take psychiatric treatment and absconded from the facility. She has been on a rampage since then, blaming everyone, her family and friends, for various shocking things. It seems like some bad spirits have taken her over. We are all dumbfounded by this.”
Mangaliso Ngema suggested that his sister “needs help.”
He continued by saying: “We are deeply concerned as her family and friends. She urgently needs help, and we continue to pray for her well-being. She is a very good person, and she loves her family. She would never put people she loves through what we are currently going through”.
