Television star Khanyi Mbau has missed an opportunity to defend the motion to have her two luxury cars from Germany to be repossessed. This comes after she had failed to file responding to court papers on time.
Standard Bank recently filed the court papers for the two vehicles to be returned and the installment also to be cancelled.
The bank also sought permission to approach the court on the same papers later, to recoup any outstanding monies due to them.
In September, the Mbau Reloaded reality star was given five days to file her intention to oppose the application, but missed the deadline, leaving the court with no choice but to grant the order against her by default.
It was reported in September that Mbau was taken to court by Standard Bank for failing to honour the terms of the agreement in the sale of the two luxury cars.
But on Saturday, Mbau insisted that she had never received the court papers informing her of the motion.
She said her lawyers would look into the matter.
According to the court papers, the former Muvhango actress had failed to keep up with the monthly instalments on a 2014 Mercedes-Benz ML 63 AMG and a 2015 Porsche 911 Carrera GTS.
At the time the bank approached the court, Mbau was allegedly almost three months in arrears.
“That the applicant be granted leave to apply to this court on the same papers duly supplemented for an order that the respondent makes payment to the applicant of any amounts due to the applicant after the inspection, valuation and sale of the goods referred to in 2 above,” read the court papers.
On Monday last week, the Johannesburg High Court granted the bank an order to repossess the two vehicles.
The bank contended in court papers that it had tried everything to get Mbau to settle the arrears and outstanding balance, but to no avail.
