The National Prosecuting Authority is deciding whether to prosecute Jackie Phamotse following sex tape rumours involving Basetsana Kumalo and her husband Romeo.
Bassie laid criminal charges against Jackie for tweeting about a female TV mogul’s husband being involved in a sexual encounter with another man.
She claimed she had seen the video, adding “no wonder this poor woman is drinking so much”.
“Just saw this video! Hayibo these old men have serious stamina!!! No wonder this poor woman is drinking so much. Imagine your yellow bone husband rimming a rapper in your house and you as the wife are watching and one of your friends is secretly videotaping,” she tweeted earlier this month.
While Jackie did not mention the couple’s names, her followers and other social media users seemed to work out that Bassie and Romeo were the people she was talking about.
The couple said they were “deeply shocked” by the rumours and were taking a stand against “keyboard warriors who so swiftly jump on the bandwagon to share harmful content”.
Jackie also consulted her lawyers after Basetsana and Romeo accused her of defamation.
Speaking to the Sunday World, the NPA confirmed that the police had referred the matter to them for a decision on whether to prosecute.
“However, the prosecutor who is handling the case referred the matter back to the police for further investigation,” NPA South Gauteng Spokeswoman Phindi Mjonondwane told the publication.
