Jub Jub’s mother takes legal action against Amanda and Masechaba

Jub Jub’s mother, Ithuteng ‘Mama Jackie’ Jacqueline Mpambani has demanded an apology from actress Amanda Du Pont and media personality Masechaba Khumalo after they mentioned her in rape accusations against the musician two weeks back.

Masechaba and Amanda found themselves on top of social media trends list after they accused musician and television presenter Jub Jub of sexual assault.

This followed his explosive interview he did on Podcast and Chill with MacG where he said he ‘smashed’ Amanda when they were in a relationship for 3 years.

Amanda who was clearly offended by Jub’s revelation took to Instagram accusing her ex-boyfriend of raping her and physical abuse. She also made several allegations against Mama Jackie.

In a lawyer’s letter, Mama Jackie denied the claims and alleged they were, ‘purposely misleading members of the public by stating and/ or implying that our client is a criminal, our client was involved in unsavoury and fraudulent dealings with Oprah, that our client has some hold over her son and that our client practises with muti.

“Our client denies she was involved in your relationship with her son and that she deals with or has ever dealt with muti,” read the letter from BDX Attorneys.

A separate letter of demand was also sent to Masechaba who claimed she was raped by Jub Jub in her house in Naturena.

“Our client denies the allegations leveled against her,” read the letter.

The letters also demanded that Amanda and Masechaba should remove their social media posts and stop sharing allegations against Mama Jackie. She also demanded they retract their statements and publicly apologize.

Failure to meet the demands in 48 hours Mama Jackie will approach the High Court.
