According to a source, Somizi has still not paid Mohale who is demanding that he buys him a car that is to be valued at a minimum of R200 000.

“Our client’s request in this regard is premised on the fact that you intentionally damaged our client’s Audi A3 on 18 November 2018,” read the letter lawyer’s to Somizi.

The publication reports that Somizi has previously promised to instead pay R30 000 to repair the vehicle.

“However, he (Somizi) wishes to pay the amount in equal monthly payments over a period of 12 months,” Mhlongo’s lawyers wrote in the response.

Another source alleged: “The main damage is for the car because nothing has been paid so far. If they don’t pay for the car, the matter will go to the high court and with that the issue of assault will also be raised in court.”

In March this year, TshisaLIVE reported that Somizi had withdrawn his divorce summons against Mohale and paid his legal fees. This after the 26-year-old denied entering into a “valid customary [marriage] on 28 September 2019”.

Somizi’s legal representatives told the publication that they obtained expert opinion clarifying the existence of the marriage that revealed “not all customs were complied with.”

Addressing the abuse claims, they said: “We know about the abuse allegations, but our client has denied all along and still denies.”
