The victim, 19-year-old Karabo Patrick Letsoalo, detailed the harrowing ordeal to ZiMoja, recounting how Shibe allegedly arrived at his home demanding to see his 10-year-old child. Letsoalo claims that when he insisted he didn’t know the child’s whereabouts, Shibe, accompanied by his elder daughter Nomthandazo Ngcobo, coerced him into a car and proceeded to interrogate and assault him.

Letsoalo alleges that during the ordeal, Shibe slapped him multiple times, and Nomthandazo brandished a firearm, escalating the situation further. Ultimately, Letsoalo managed to escape and seek refuge at a friend’s house, albeit losing his phone in the process.

Nomthandazo, when contacted by ZiMoja, refuted the allegations, asserting that they had visited Letsoalo’s ex-wife’s place peacefully to deliver Christmas and birthday gifts for the child. She denied the use of a firearm and claimed that Letsoalo’s account was fabricated.
