Media personality Somizi Mhlongo has lost his furniture for allegedly not paying his taxes.
The South African Revenue Service (SARS) has also ordered television producer Legend Manqele, who produced his reality show, Living the Dream with Somizi, to pay R1.5-million of his and ex-husband Mohale’s royalties into a SARS account and not into their lawyer’s account after they had instructed him to do so earlier this month.
In a notice of sale in execution, which we have seen, Sandton North sheriff Kgomotso Mphahlele said she had put Somizi’s furniture under the hammer to recoup the funds he owed for failing pay at least R3.5-million in tax debt he owed since 2014.
The goods, according to the notice, were sold following a judgment 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 auctioned off 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 walked down the aisle in 2020 but separated last year after accusations and counter accusations of physical abuse.
