Police called in to evict Zahara’s sisters.

The late Afro-pop star Zahara must be rolling in her grave. Just a day after Zimoja reported that sisters Bandezwa and Lumka Mkutukana held a garage sale to sell her memorabilia and expensive furniture, it has now come to light that they had a confrontation with the new homeowners of her residence, according to ZiMoja.

Upon arriving, the new homeowner discovered a flurry of activity at the house with the garage sale in progress, and the sisters had not begun packing to vacate. Despite the new owner’s attempts to reason with them and halt the sale, the siblings persisted in selling items instead of preparing to leave.

A witness revealed that chaos ensued at the complex as the Mkutukana sisters resisted vacating the premises, prompting the intervention of the police. “Those women are notorious for their love of money above all else. They are driven by greed and seem to believe the house still belongs to their late sister,” the source remarked.

Reportedly, the new owner had initially granted them until the previous day to pack up and depart, but they requested an extension. “Upon the new owner’s arrival with garden cleaning personnel, he was met by the uncooperative women who caused a scene,” an insider recounted.

The women purportedly insisted on more time, but the owner remained resolute. “They were adamant about not leaving as many items remained unsold. Their priority seemed to be selling everything before returning to the Eastern Cape. Money appears to be their sole focus, disregarding Zahara’s legacy,” the eyewitness added.

Among the items up for sale were Zahara’s bedroom and lounge suites, kitchenware, a flat-screen TV, and various music awards.

Sunday World reported that the Mkutukana sisters were selling Zahara’s furniture to the highest bidder through WhatsApp messages. Zahara’s cousin and former manager, Oyama Dyosiba, declined to comment, stating that the family had excluded him from Zahara’s affairs after her passing.

Zahara’s husband, Mpho Xaba, mentioned being excluded from discussions about his late wife. Xaba also revealed not knowing Zahara’s burial place, despite continuing to pay her medical bills. He expressed feeling mistreated by the family, leading him to seek counseling for emotional healing during his period of mourning.
