GOSPEL star Hlengiwe Mhlaba finds herself in a sticky situation following a car crash.
Businessman Moataz Mohammed said Hlengiwe crashed into his car in Fourways, Joburg, on 10 November.
“She promised to pay for the damage but I’ve been chasing her ever since,” said Moataz, owner of Events Update.
He said after the crash, they went to the nearest petrol station and he was surprised to see people taking photos of Hlengiwe as he didn’t know who she was.
“I took pictures of her driver’s licence, ID and car. I thought she’d honour her promise. But I feel she has disrespected and scammed me since. She has now stopped responding to SMSes and calls,” he said.
But Hlengiwe said she told Moataz to get a quotation from one of her contacts.
She said: “When he got there, he showed them scratches all over the car, yet he claimed I only damaged the bumper. He should explain his version of the accident.
“He refused to open a case after the accident and he has been threatening me. I want this thing to end. I will take necessary steps in due time. I have consulted with my legal team.”
Hlengiwe said her car was not damaged in the accident.
