Shauwn Mkhize helps Somizi divorce Mohale

South African media personality, Somizi Mhlongo, and Mohale Motaung’s divorce unsettlement has taken center stage on his reality show, Living The Dream with Somizi. He is seeking help from relevant parties to assist him with the customary marriage issues he is facing.

In the latest episode of Living The Dream, Somizi actively gets Shauwn Mkhize to help him handle issues. Even though Somizi’s problems seem to pile up, he still enjoys a vacation to Cape Town but Shauwn warned him that they have more pressing issues to attend to and partying can wait.

In the latest episode, Shauwn and Somizi meet up at a popular shisanyama in Umlazi, Durban called Max’s Lifestyle and they discuss two of his most urgent issues, his divorce, and the SARS issue.

“We have something important to fix, but you’re busy doing your makeup and attending parties. Parties can wait. What about this important thing?” said Shauwn to the Idols SA judge.

The two then set up a meeting for the following Monday and Somizi says he is ready with the paperwork.

“Can I come on Monday? On Monday I’ll bring the documents and everything. Let’s do it on Monday, please?” he asked Shauwn Somizi had just landed in Durban, following his trip to Cape Town.

Speaking to the camera, Somizi says Shauwn is of great help to him, especially with his ‘divorce unsettlement’, “We were discussing how we need to fix my issue with the lawyers and SARS and stuff. She’s really helping me a lot in terms of my divorce settlement… or unsettlement rather,” he said.

He even jokingly asked Andile Mpisane, Shauwn’s son for R5 million to help settle his taxes.

In the previous episode, Shauwn promised to help Somizi with his issues including the SARS issue as Shauwn had faced it before.

“I need you to connect me to the person… your tax lawyer. Because they’re after me now,” Somizi told Shauwn.

Shauwn sent her lawyers to Somizi, “Are they also after you? I will send it to you fast and furious. So they get onto it while you’re there in Cape Town.”

Somizi explained why he asked Shauwn for help and it’s because of her own experience with such matters.

“I just got a letter from my ex’s lawyers. So, I also need a divorce lawyer. The person to speak to right now is Shauwn because I think she’s been through both situations and she’s used very good lawyers,” he said.

After the episode aired, publications pointed out the real reason Somizi asked Shauwn for help. It is because he is reportedly in trouble with SARS. According to Sunday World, Somizi owes R3.5 million in taxes which date from 2014.

To help pay for this debt, a few of his luxury items were auctioned. These are: “A Samsung washing machine, a white sculpture (Guman Head), Le Creuset bowl, three plastic bar chairs, two red human statues, a Hisense television set with a remote, a smeg dishwasher, two brass painted coffee tables, one Carrol Boyes knife set with stand, a Carrol Boyes bowl, five various Le Creuset pots, a Gold Air gas heater, a DeLonghi oil heater, a Samsung fridge, a silver kitchen bowl, three glass vases, eight cushions, a sleeper couch, a wooden TV stand with drawers, dining chairs and a table and knife set with stand.”
