Last year, South Africans were left shocked after hearing how Leeroy Sidambe, a wealthy businessman from the North of Johannesburg had not paid his employees. Sidambe — who is currently in a relationship with influencer and content creator Mihlali Ndamase — allegedly still hasn’t paid salaries to SA Social Security Agency (Sassa) guards employed by his company Sakhile Ezweni Group.

Social media users have blasted Sidambe who is known for flaunting his wealth while calling his arrest.

Leeroy Sidambe faces backlash for skipping employee payments

In 2022, Leeroy Sidambe made headlines after making his relationship with influencer Mihlali Ndamase public while still being married to his wife Mary-Jane.

Mihlali was at the receiving end of a lot of criticism from social media users who slammed her as a man stealer.

This did not stop the pair from flaunting their romance online.

While most of the shock around their romance has died down, the couple are still a hot topic.

This week Leeroy has found himself trending again after recent reports revealed that he still hasn’t paid his employees.

The publication alleges that this will be the third month of unpaid salaries to the SA Social Security Agency (Sassa) guards.

Sidambe has allegedly offered the workers small amounts of money on random dates and has also threatened to fire them should they protest or stay away from work.

Is Mimi the problem?

“This has been going on for a long time. Sidambe used to pay them on the 7th or 8th of the month, but now he’s [making irregular payments] again. Some of the guys don’t even have money for transport,” a source told City Press.

The source has also slammed a “disgraceful” Mihlali for going on lavish trips with Sidambe while his employees sleep with empty stomachs.

Meanwhile, social media users have called on Sidambe’s arrest. They have also criticised Mihlali who they say should not stand by while her man mistreats his employees.

“He’s getting blackballed cause of Mihlali,” one person said while another added that he spent the money on her BBL.
