Alleged fraudster and business woman, Shauwn Mkhize, owes SARS millions

Shauwn Mkhize, the owner of the Royal AM soccer team, is involved in another tax controversy that may result in the loss of some of her luxury items.

According to EWN, known as ‘Mamkhize,’ the businesswoman and media personality reportedly owes the South African Revenue Service (SARS) over R37 million in unpaid taxes.

This isn’t the first instance where Mkhize has been accused of tax evasion. In 2020, SARS successfully secured a liquidation order against her cleaning company for failing to pay more than R200,000 in taxes.

Mkhize accumulated much of her wealth through various government contracts to build low-cost housing in KwaZulu-Natal. However, details about her wealth and ongoing investigations by SARS and the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) into her business activities have been publicized in newspaper reports since 2013.

Mkhize is now facing new allegations of unpaid taxes from SARS. EWN claims that SARS has initiated an execution application to seize 13 of Mkhize’s vehicles, including a Lamborghini and Rolls Royce owned by Shandi Trust and her soccer team.

If the court approves the order, all vehicles under Shandi Trust, where Mkhize is the primary shareholder, must be handed over to SARS within seven days.

It is reported that SARS officials attempted to access Mkhize’s property this week but were unable to do so.
