Penny Lebyane's possessions allegedly auctioned to settle debt

Cape Town - TV personality Penny Lebyanye has allegedly landed herself in a legal soup. 

Sunday Sun reported that Sunrise anchor, Penny Lebyane's furniture was auctioned off at the Randburg Sheriff's office to repay a debt of R65 830, last week.

It was reported that court documents revealed Penny owed Hudfam CC approximately R65 830 for defaulting on the lease agreement they entered into in 2012. Reports went on to say that the contract was breached in 2013. And the two parties started their court battle in 2014.

Penny's legal woes came to an end last week when Penny's possessions were sold at audition at the Randburg Sheriff's office.

According to the local publication some of the items sold at the auctions included a four-piece bedroom suite, a double-door fridge, a washing machine, a seven-piece dining room suite, a three-piece lounge suite, a three-piece Hi-Fi system, a gas heater, three TVs, a coffee table, microwave and dish washer.

Penny made the following statement to Sunday Sun:

"Yes, I did owe Fiona, but please note payments have been made to her with regards to the R65 800 which was in arrears when I wasn't working in 2013 to 2014. I didn't know my things have been auctioned off. I thought they'd be returned after I've settled the debt.

"I did my best to honour the debt and communicate as truthfully as I could. She's been very gracious to me in difficult circumstances."
