That jailbird Uyanda is tweeting!
SELF-styled fashion designer Uyanda Mbuli is likely to make cops who arrested her walk on the wrong ramp of the law.
The police are probing how the Midrand cops who arrested the former beauty queen allowed her to smuggle a cellphone into a police holding cell.
Police spokesperson Warrant Officer Moses Maphakela says: "If it is true that she was tweeting from police holding cells, we will investigate how she got her phone in there. Cellphones aren't allowed in police holding cells."
Mbuli churned out the tweets while in police custody, communicating with fans about her arrest, "bad" husband and conditions in the holding cells.
"I can't sleep. I'm in a holding cell and Gard Damn, its cold sleeping on cement! LOL! I was arrested today & treated like the criminal I am! My crime: Marrying the wrong man.
"My mom never told me when I got married that should I opt out I would end up a criminal...
One of the tweets was to boast about a woman she met inside who declared she was her fan: "I'm sharing the cell with a young lady who says she's my biggest fan. Thank God!!!
"It would be worse if I'd be in with a UM-Hater... LOL.
"I said sure babe. Let's tell our tales. Birds of the same feather. ? We both criminals! Her 4 fraud & me 4 my sins of choosing a wrong husband. She says she can't wait to go back home to share her experience of being arrested along side (sic) her shero.... LOL!"
After being released on a warning and told to appear in court on May 29, Uyanda thanked her fans for supporting her.
"Thanks for the support good people, I'm out on bail.. At least I have Adele's music to listen to, LOL."
Mbuli, who vacated her matrimonial house in the genteel suburb of Kyalami after filing for divorce, had returned to it and has been laying her hat there for almost two weeks before the police arrested her for violating a protection order her husband Sisa had obtained against her.
Sisa had been sleeping like an Okapi as he does not want to touch her with a barge pole, a family member tells us. The couple have been sleeping in separate bedrooms since Mbuli went home.
Sources say Mbuli, who was staying in a cluster house in Bryanston, moved back to her marital home in an apparent attempt to worm her way back into Sisa's orbit.
A family friend who is privy to the couple's private life says Sisa had no qualms about his estranged wife moving back into the house.
"That is proof that he was no danger or threat to her, despite media reports that he was vicious towards her," says the family friend, who asked not to be named.
But all hell broke loose when Mbuli started henpecking Sisa two weeks after her return.
"She started swearing at him, shouting and screaming. Sisa realised that she was not there to rebuild her broken family but to provoke him so he could beat her and get arrested. He then went to the police and obtained a protection order against her," says the relative.
On Thursday morning, Mbuli subjected Sisa to her barrage of epithets. Taxed beyond endurance, Sisa phoned the local cops, who went to the house and slapped cuffs on the social butterfly.
She apparently tried to evade arrested by keeping the police waiting outside the house for almost two hours.
Mbuli, who was reportedly wearing only a pink gown and sunglasses, kept taking the garment off, revealing her "birth suit" to the bemused police officers as they escorted her to the police cells.
Sisa declines to comment, saying the matter is sub-judice.
Mbuli's publicist Simphiwe Majola had not responded to our questions at the time of going to press.

"Wondering why none of the writers bother to check whole (sic) name is on the title deed?.. Dah, it won't sell newspapers that I bloody own it..." - referring to their house.
"I definitely fall on (sic) the category of people who see the glass half full ...Jesu!!! I always see the good in everyone under any circumstances.
"Thou (sic) sometimes I wonder, does it have 2b me." - in response to a follower who tweeted: "Nothing would be put in your life if you weren't strong enough to get through it..."
Mbuli's family responds:
A number of false allegations have been levelled against Uyanda Mbuli, in ... the media.
As a family we believe it's our moral responsibility to put the record straight... As far as we know the house at Kyalami Estate belongs to both Uyanda and Sisa Mbuli. There's no court interdict that says Uyanda must move out of their house.
The family condemns all distortions of facts, fabrications and insinuations aimed at destroying Uyanda's good name.
We would love this personal, private matter to be put to rest.
