Mzansi media personality Somizi Mhlongo has suffered a blow after losing some of his luxury furniture to the South African Revenue Service (SARS) for allegedly not paying his taxes.
It has also been reported that SARS has ordered television producer Legend Manqele, who produced Somizi’s reality show, Living the Dream with Somizi, to pay R1.5-million of his and ex-husband Mohale Motaung’s royalties into a SARS account and not into their lawyer’s account.
A local publication reports that in a notice of sale in execution, Sandton North sheriff Kgomotso Mphahlele indicated that the move was aimed at recovering at least R3.5-million in tax debt owed by the media personality since 2014.
This follows a judgment that was obtained by SARS in the Johannesburg High Court on November 5 2015.
“In pursuance of a high court judgment … on November 5 2015, for Somizi Mhlongo and a warrant of execution issued against movable property pursuant thereto, the movable property listed below will be sold in execution on May 18 2022 at 11am at 24 Rhodes Avenue Kensington B, Randburg 2125 to the highest bidder,” reads the notice.
The items that were put under the hummer included:
“a Samsung washing machine, a white sculpture (Guman Head), Le Creuset bowl, three plastic bar chairs, two red human statues, a Hisense television set with a remote, a Smeg dishwasher, two brass painted coffee tables, one Carrol Boyes knife set with stand, a Carrol Boyes bowl, five various Le Creuset pots, a Gold Air gas heater, a Delonghi oil heater, a Samsung fridge, a silver kitchen bowl, three glass vases, eight cushions, a sleeper couch, a wooden TV stand with drawers, dining chairs and a table and knife set with stand,” reads the notice.
Somizi and Mohale have been making headlines after they separated following counter allegations of physical abuse.
