The front page and lead story of SA's largest daily newspaper, November 21 2013

Daily Sun (November 21 2013) - FOR four years, former SunBabe Choice Mathebula has put up with torments from a woman who wants to steal her husband. Now Choice is living in fear after the woman failed to appear in court and went on the run. SHE WORRIES THE WOMAN WILL CARRY OUT THREATS TO KILL HER!

The woman was due to appear in the Pretoria North Magistrates Court yesterday on seven charges of intimidation and contravention of a protection order.

A warrant for her arrest has been issued. Choice (25), who lives in Montana, Tshwane, and is now a model, told Daily Sun the problem started in 2009 when the woman became obsessed with Itumeleng Kukung, her traditional husband, and kept sending him love messages.

Then there were SMSes to her demanding she leave Tumi and wanting her out of the way. When she and Tumi had a baby, the woman "went berserk" and allegedly sent notes threatening to kill her.

Choice started getting sneaked photos of herself and her child with the heads scratched out. "She said she could get me any time. We had to move to another area," said Choice. Another death threat appeared scrawled on her front door.

"Although this woman has not carried out her threats, I'm afraid because she does not respect the law." The woman was arrested in August and has appeared in court several times.

On 30 October, her attorney asked for more time as he was unprepared for the number of charges his client faced. In court yesterday the woman sent a message through her lawyer to say she was writing an examination.

) Police Sergeant Portia Maleka confirmed that there was a warrant of arrest for contempt of court against the woman and cops expect to arrest her soon.
