The ex-wife of faded kwaito singer Msawawa has been trying to recover a car stolen from her car rental company since February.
A woman hired the Polo VW for R450 a day but her boyfriend ran off with it. Angela said the car was supposed to be returned after four days but this never happened. The car tracker was removed and the boyfriend has been on the run since it disappeared in Empangeni, KZN.
“The woman was arrested but was later released after the court ruled that she didn’t know anything about her boyfriend’s intentions to steal the car.
“When the cops called the guy, he said I owed him money. But when he was asked why he was on the run, he had no answer,” said Angela.
She told Daily Sun the only thing she wanted was her car back.
“My company is losing so much money because I have to pay off a car I don’t have. I’ve paid about R49 000 for the car since it disappeared.”
Angela said her insurance company was still investigating the matter.
Police spokesman Colonel Thembeka Mbhele said: “A case of theft of a motor vehicle was opened and a 22-year-old suspect was arrested.
“She appeared in court in July and the case was struck off the roll due to insufficient evidence of theft.”
