From Gomora To Court| Katlego Danke’s BMW Drama Unfolds
Gomora actress Katlego Danke, is currently embroiled in a legal battle after she reportedly failed to pay for her luxurious BMW, valued at almost R1 million.
City Press reports that SuperDrive Investments has taken legal measures against the esteemed actress for her alleged failure to fulfill her financial obligations towards the car.
According to court records, Danke violated an instalment agreement by neglecting to pay the monthly sum of R10 821.01 for a 2013 BMW X5 Xdrive 501 M-Sport.
As per their agreement, Danke was required to pay an initial sum of R35,000, followed by regular monthly instalments and a final payment of R194,719.95, due in September.
Furthermore, SuperDrive Investments cited that the court had authorized the termination of the contract, thereby obliging Danke to relinquish ownership of the car.
The defendant, up to the present time, has neglected to fulfill their payment obligations according to the agreement. Despite numerous efforts by the plaintiff’s authorized tracing agents, the vehicle’s whereabouts remain unknown.
According to the documents, the vehicle’s selling price was R963,011.66, and when the legal action was taken, an outstanding sum of R402,797.34 remained. The papers read:
In the event that, upon repossession of the asset, the plaintiff cannot sell the asset for an amount equal to the full outstanding balance, the defendant would be liable to pay the plaintiff the shortfall between the full outstanding balance, plus costs incurred.
Last month, Danke’s legal representatives submitted a notice of intention to contest the lawsuit in the same court. However, a court date has not yet been assigned to the case.
SuperDrive Investments also emphasized in its claim that the matter was not referred to a debt counsellor and was not under review.
“The plaintiff would be entitled to claim costs on an attorney and client scale together with the collection commission should it be necessary for the plaintiff to institute an action against the defendant,” added the claim.
The publication further reports that Danke refused to answer enquiries about the crux of the dispute, saying: “I have no comment.”
