Court Orders Attachment Of Khanyi Mbau’s Property
Khanyi Mbau hits hard times!
After failing to keep up with the monthly instalments on a 2014 Mercedes-Benz ML 63 AMG and a 2015 Porsche 911 Carrera GTS, Johannesburg High Court has ordered Standard Bank to attach two of the luxury cars that she owns.
The actress appears to have hit hard times in this recent past after she started struggling to keep up with her bills some two months ago. This prompted the bank to drag her to the courts seeking an order to cancel the two instalment sale agreements and for the vehicles to be returned.
However, the former Muvhango star said that she was shocked that the bank had decided to take her to court, asserting that she was quite willing to resolve the matter amicably.
She also insisted that she was only one month behind in arrears for the Porche and that she expected to be up to date soon. She added that she was willing to arrange a meeting to sort things out with the bank.
The Mbau Reloaded reality show star is reported to have missed the opportunity to defend herself in court when she failed to file responding court papers on time.
In September Khanvi was given five days to file her intention to oppose the application, but missed the deadline, leaving the court with no choice but to grant the order against her by default.
On Monday last week, the Johannesburg High Court granted the bank an order to repossess the two luxury vehicles. The court ordered Mbau to return the two cars to the lender. In the event that the actress fails to comply, the court ordered the Sheriff of the Court to repossess the vehicles.
According to City Press, Khanyi Mbau is still insisting that she never received any court papers and has said that her lawyers will look into the matter.
According to the Sunday World, Khanvi bought both vehicles for at least R1.5 Million each and was paying at least R28 000 a month for each vehicle.
However, the Covid-19 induced national lockdown seems to have affected her adversely resulting in her skipping payments for both luxury cars in March, April, and May. She later made some of the outstanding payments although she seems to have failed to satisfy the bank.
