Daily Sun reported that Thamsanqa Mngqolo who used to play Senzo on the soapie, was taken to court for defaulting on his car payment.
According to court papers in possession of Sunday Sun, Thami owes R59 538.
The bank applied at the South Gauteng High Court in Joburg to have the car repossessed.
But Thami tried to put up a brave fight against the bank’s order to repossess the car. In April he informed the court through his lawyers, Mzamo Attorneys, that he intended to defend the case.
In May the bank applied for a summary judgment against the TV star. It asked the court to order him to return the car and also to cancel the agreement.
But Thami’s efforts to fight the bank were in vain as Judge Matojane ordered that the 2010 Audi A3 be repossessed. The judge spared him from paying damages when he postponed the bank’s application. But he ordered that Thami pays the cost of the application.
The actor was supposed to pay a monthly instalment of R4 164,78 but started defaulting last year.
The bank’s legal representative, Fahim Ebrahim, argued that Thami’s action to defend the case was done so to delay proceedings.
