Mamkhize reportedly owes SARS millions

Reality TV star and businesswoman Mamkhize reportedly owes South African Revenue Service (SARS) more than R37 million in unpaid taxes.



EWN reports that Uzalo star Shauwn “Mamkhize” Mkhize is embroiled in another tax scandal that could see her lose some luxury belongings.

The businesswoman and media personality known as ‘Mamkhize’ reportedly owes the South African Revenue Service (SARS) more than R37 million in unpaid taxes.

In 2020, SARS reportedly obtained a liquidation order against her cleaning company for owing more than R200 000 in unpaid taxes, adds the publication.

It is reported she secured much of her wealth from multiple government tenders to build low-cost housing in Kwazulu-Natal.

FarPost reported in 2023 that Mamkhize is owing SARS R37 million and the High Court of South Africa on Monday, 16 October demanded she pays.

The Warrant of Execution from the High Court reportedly directed the sheriff of the court “to attach and remove the movable property of the Royal AM”.

“The Execution Creditor / Plaintiff [SARS] obtained judgment on 16 October 2023 against the Execution / Defendant [Royal AM] for:

“1. The payment of the sum of R37, 915, 549.77 [Thirty-seven million nine hundred and fifteen thousand five hundred and forty-nine rand and seventy-seven cents].

“2. Interest on the sum claimed in paragraph 1 at the applicable rate per annum from 1 November 2023 to date of payment, the said rate[s] of interest and date from which such interest is payable having been determined by the Execution Creditor / Plaintiff [SARS],” read the warrant of execution.

Sunday World reported in 2020 the court battle between Mkhize and SARS began in 2016 when they demanded R141 million in unpaid taxes.

Mkhize’s assets, including her La Lucia mansion and luxury vehicles had reportedly been seized. The reality TV star reportedly secured an agreement and reclaimed her assets.

The publication adds that SARS successfully obtained a final liquidation order against Mkhize’s company, Zikhulise Cleaning, Maintenance and Transport. It was reported the company owed R204 million in unpaid taxes.
