The saga between Enhle Mbali Mlotshwa and her estranged husband, Nkosinathi “Black Coffee” Maphumulo, is not over. Judgement in the matter between DJ Nkosinathi Maphumulo, popularly known as Black Coffee, and former wife Mbalenhle Mlotshwa has been reserved.
The Randburg Magistrate’s Court heard an application for a protection order, preventing Black Coffee from entering his former marital home. The two took to the courts following an alleged altercation in their home in March. Maphumulo allegedly slapped Enhle Mbali on the wrist after a disagreement. It is believed Maphumulo was unhappy with a birthday celebration held at the home.
Mbali applied for a restraining order against DJ Black Coffee in the Randburg Magistrate’s Court on Monday. Activists were seen outside court showing their support for the actress with banners displaying #JusticeForEnhle, #HandsoffEnhle and “Am I Next?”.
“It is my duty as a woman to not only fight for myself but for every single woman in South Africa. The time is now.” Enhle said.
Gender-based violence advocacy group, Women For Change, posted its solidarity on Sunday, with other high-profile figures such as actress Rosie Motene, author Jackie Phamotse and radio host Penny Lebyane outside court in support of Enhle.

Motene who was in court, said the proceedings were not allowed to be on camera and they were asked to step outside.
The DJ is opposing the protection order.
