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.
