Mpisane claims fraud in family trust amid MaMkhize’s SARS woes

Royal AM boss MaMkhize’s SARS drama has opened her estranged husband’s eyes to ‘fraudulent’ changes in their family trust fund.

Royal AM Football Club president Shauwn “MaMkhize” Mkhize and her estranged husband, Sbu Mpisane, are embroiled in a South African Revenue Service (SARS) scandal.

MPISANE QUESTIONS CHANGES IN FAMILY TRUST

ZiMoja reports that MaMkhize, who is also a reality TV star, is at risk of losing 13 luxury vehicles under a family trust called Shandi Trust.

This is after SARS applied for an execution order at the Pietermaritzburg High Court on 9 May, as the businesswoman reportedly owes more than R37 million in unpaid taxes.

According to the publication, the trustees of Shandi Trust are Sipokazi Zuma (32), Brightness Senzekile Mseleku (33), and MaMkhize’s 43-year-old younger brother Melusi Mkhize.

However, according to Mpisane – who is still legally married to the Mamkhize: My World, My Rules author – he had no idea that the family trust has a new name.

The Royal Eagles Football Club owner (who is a former Metro police constable) alleged that he founded the trust under the name Mkhimpi Family Trust – a combination of the Mkhize and Mpisane surnames – and was recently informed that it no longer exists.

“I am the founder of Mkhimpi Family Trust and I registered the entity. I am not sure how the family trust changed its name unless it was done fraudulently,” he said.

Mpisane said he was shocked to discover that SARS wants to seized cars owned by him and MaMkhize, even though they are now registered under a new name.

SARS BLOCKED FROM ENTERING MAMKHIZE’S PROPERTIES

According to EyeWitness News, the curators visited the businesswoman’s property last week, but could not gain access.

ZiMoja added that the SARS officials and the curator simultaneously arrived at MaMkhize’s Durban and Sandton properties and still could not enter.

“There was a standoff between the two security companies, and the police were called in to quell what might have been a bloodbath,” a source said.

‘DUBIOUS’ SPONSORSHIP DEAL FROM THE MSUNDUZI MUNICIPALITY

In February this year, MaMkhize made headlines when her soccer team’s multimillion rand sponsorship deal with the Msunduzi Local Municipality in Pietermaritzburg was investigated by Carte Blanche.

The controversial agreement, which was signed in July 2023, saw the capital city of KwaZulu-Natal offering the Premier Soccer League (PSL) side R27 million over three years in exchange for the club’s usage of the Harry Gwala Stadium.

However, the deal has been scrutinised by the Democratic Alliance, which applied to the Pietermaritzburg High Court late last year, “declaring the impugned decisions unlawful” and requesting that they be reviewed and set aside.
