The legal battle between DJ Fresh, real name Thato Sikwane, and Euphonik (Themba Nkosi) against ‘Nampree’ is once again at the forefront.
As reported by city pressthe rape case brought by the accuser using her Twitter handle name @Nampree has been reopened.
The National Prosecution’s Authority (NPA) dismissed the case in February 2021 due to “insufficient evidence”.
In January 2021, Nampree accused Fresh and Euphonik of allegedly drugging and raping her 11 years ago.
Law enforcement the case reopened in January 2022. Nampree’s legal representative, Brenda Madumise-Pajibo, said they were waiting for an explanation as to why authorities made the decision.
“Remember, when the DJs announced on Twitter that the NPA had decided not to prosecute, we filed a formal dispute and complaint against the police. They then agreed to investigate what had happened to the case.”
“We have been very consistent. We have also addressed this dispute with the public defender,” she said.
Nampree confirmed the messages on Twitter and thanked people for their support.
She re-shared a thread originally posted on October 2021, explaining what happened during the police investigation when the case was first opened.
Nampree claimed that a “fake” cop from Botswana walked into the police station and said she hired him for her case. She added:
“Without verifying me, they gave him my entire file. In his ‘research’ he made me look like a… [sex worker.]She claims this is why her case was dismissed.
“So this story of ‘rejected for lack of evidence’ must be END. My case has been rejected [because the Police] did not investigate and trusted the man who came in and said I hired him.”
Nampree also mentioned the “fake private detective” in her tweet (recorded below) and wondered who might have hired him.
The Vanir-exodus has approached the NPA and the DJs for comment and is awaiting a response.
