Sheriff attaches Shilowa's assets

2011-07-20 08:29

Johannesburg - The sheriff of the court has attached assets at the Roodepoort house of Cope founder Mbhazima Shilowa, The Star reported on Wednesday.

The goods will be auctioned off to pay his political rival, Mosiuoa Lekota, R72 000 in legal costs.

Lekota last year secured a court ruling in his favour preventing Shilowa from calling himself the president of the Congress of the People. The court ordered Shilowa to pay the legal costs of the case.

The Star said a fridge, washing machine, two lounge suites and two wall units were attached at the house in Constantia Kloof, Roodepoort, northwest of Johannesburg.

Shilowa's spokesperson, Sipho Ngwema, confirmed to The Star that the assets were attached but said the legal costs had already been settled and that the goods would be returned to Shilowa's family.

    In the end, Cope was the biggest loser........

      siya.block - 2011-07-20 08:39

      and its still going to loose more

      @Siya: At least cope was not involved in corruption or like Malema, making an ASS out of himself. I still think higher of cope than the ANCC. In short, I will rather vote cope than even think of voting the ANC.

    sipho you previously denied knowledge of this now it happened you say it has been paid,if i was shilowa i would have fired you long ago.shilowa i think is time you came back home.

  • Azizi - 2011-07-20 08:42

    Yes Shilowa you exchanged your 'red socks' for red wine. You are a sellout all round, they should have attached your wine farm.

      Carbon - 2011-07-20 08:46

      So the attacks on farms you consider a weapon?

      Azizi - 2011-07-20 08:54

      Who said aything about 'attacks'.

      daaivark - 2011-07-20 09:58

      Carbon. There is a big difference between the words "attach" and "attack". No-one is speaking about attacking farms.

  • matubeng - 2011-07-20 08:59

    Shilowa, just look for a job 'cause the security industry still needs you. You cannot play the games of the big guns like Lekota, he has been around for a while and even ANC knows that. They cannot take him on, he is a fearless fighter from the UDF of the 80s.

    @slapper how does the ANC feed in this cope issue may be we will understand your comment

    Any idea of what's in the wall units? Mmmm...Some Johny Walker, Chivas?

  • paulmandlankosi - 2011-07-20 09:05

    Very sad

  • kolobe - 2011-07-20 09:12

    with wendy luhabe as the wife, he is upto something

      symbiosis1981 - 2011-07-20 09:56

      maybe the wife is seeking divorce thats why shes not helping him.

      daaivark - 2011-07-20 09:59

      And that makes sense why?

  • Poloyatonki - 2011-07-20 09:12

    COPE members must come back to ANC, Mbheki fooled them.

      Currie_Mafia - 2011-07-20 09:29

      We have formed a new party : Democratic Equality Movement Opposing Nepotism, Impropriety and Corruption...aka DEMONIC.

      BOFFINBOB - 2011-07-20 09:48

      Curry....LOL. Brilliant.

      African'shtr - 2011-07-20 16:12

      its your mother who fooled people, Mbeki is my hero and he will always be I don't care who says what, that man has done so good for the country

  • Dave - 2011-07-20 09:14

    The attached assets do not make sense. The sheriff has to attach assets with an auction value of R72000, this usually means the assets probably had to cost, if they are in good condition, at least 2 to 3 times this amount. Someone aint telling the truth here

      Currie_Mafia - 2011-07-20 10:56

      ....attaching a man's assets...eish, sounds painful !

      African'shtr - 2011-07-20 16:14

      use your common sense, when you put something on auction it can be bought a very low price compared to its value so that is why you need to take more

      YasButIDunno - 2011-07-21 08:09

      What about the Sam Shilowa Express??? Oh wait, they took it away from him as soon as he left the party of all mothers :)

  • Airwolf - 2011-07-20 09:17

    Shilowa's spokesman claims the goods would be returned as the bill was settled. I don't believe that, that sounds like a typical ANC nurtured response in order to save face, a bit like a denial.

      Prud - 2011-07-20 13:55

      Idiot Shilowa's spokesperson is Sipho Ngwema from Cope not ANC. Stupid Bastard

      Airwolf - 2011-07-20 16:29

      @Prud, I can see your head is rather hollow. That is why I said "ANC nurtured" because that is where they learned to turn tricks while they were still ANC and not COPE - do you understand now? Go and wipe the dribble off your chin, its starting to drip.

  • Neil - 2011-07-20 09:28

    How much for the wall unit? Is it in good condition? I was planning on buying one anyway. Then I can say I got a famous or rather infamous person's furniture! (Sarcastic)

  • Expression - 2011-07-20 09:31

    @Poloyatonki Leave Mbeki out of this SH1T man...

  • Gore - 2011-07-20 09:58

    Eish, Mbhazima, sorry bru!!

  • Ngqeku - 2011-07-20 10:06

    Its cold out there! Shilowa was warned,now he is feeling the chill

      Neil - 2011-07-20 10:17

      At least he got a brain and got out the ANC.

      KingDallas - 2011-07-20 12:21

      Hey Neil. ANC is the party for future.

  • Geraldo Mc phu - 2011-07-20 10:15

    I didn't know that the comedy is still on ...excuse my poor sense of humour.

  • DORK VADER - 2011-07-20 10:20

    What was the most comments an articl got? This one already running to 43. Er I think Earl Rose should play for the springboks...

  • Pete - 2011-07-20 10:35

    @Ngqeku: consider this quote from the London Times... Affirmative Action "South Africa is the only country in the world where affirmative action is in the favour of the majority who has complete political control. The fact that the political majority requires affirmative action to protect them against a 9% minority group is testament to a complete failure on their part to build their own wealth making structures, such that their only solution is to take it from others." London Times

      Blip - 2011-07-20 13:41

      A hoax, Pete. Just a hoax. There's no "London Times", the actual "Times" never printed it and it's factually wrong -- Malaysia AA's their majority Malay population ahead of the rich Chinese minority too.

  • Brendan - 2011-07-20 11:00

    Must be nice second hand appliances for R72000 - anyone got the Sheriff's number - maybe I can get so much for my stuff.

  • Bulumko - 2011-07-20 11:12

    The COPE J.O.K.E......eish....

  • SPACEBOI - 2011-07-20 11:34

    the headlines...LOL

  • Sooth Slayer - 2011-07-20 11:49

    The problem with COPE is that they did not differ ideologically from the ANC and hence their split was a non-event.

  • Thembisile - 2011-07-20 13:48

    @Qceku, and people in Alex, diepsloot, free state are suffering under the rule of anc, you are blinded by loyalty.

  • Prud - 2011-07-20 13:51

    I remember Comrade Julius Malema telling Shilowa that he is inviting poverty by joining cope.

  • Sibusiso Radebe - 2011-07-20 17:28

    he should have asked JM for a cash loan?

  • Sibusiso Radebe - 2011-07-20 17:28

    he should gave asked JM for a cash loan?
