Things are starting to get tense there by the Mpisane/Mkhize mansion, it seems the soft life has finally caught up with the wealthy businesswoman and tv personality. No matter how rich and powerful you are, the South African Revenue Services are not to be messed with.
ccording to a Tweep, the long-standing battle between SARS and Shauwn Mkhize’s company Zikhulise Cleaning Maintenance & Transport was heard at the Pretoria High Court, where a final liquidation order against the company. The application was brought by the SA Revenue Service for outstanding debts totalling about R204m, Mkhize had repeatedly stated that Sars was biased and acted in bad faith by declining to enter into a deferred payment arrangement but the court dismissed that claim.
SARS Commissioner, Edward Kieswetter welcomed the judgment and expressed SARS’ commitment to enforcing compliance against taxpayers who abuse the legal process in order to try and avoid their obligations.

“Sars will act within the law and will pursue without fear or favour any taxpayer who is bent on evading their legal obligations,”
JUST IN: The North Gauteng High Court has ruled in favour of SARS and granted the taxman a final order to liquidate Shawn Mkhize's company, Zikhulise Cleaning Maintenance and Transport Services, in order to recoup debt.

Kieswetter was appalled that taxpayers…
“would through their carefully calibrated actions, seek to deprive poor and vulnerable South Africans who depend on state-funded social grants by not paying their taxes. This victory must send a clear and unambiguous message to all citizens that Sars will make it costly and hard for taxpayers who choose the path of non-compliance.”
Mam’Mkhize is popularly known for her hit reality tv show – Kwa Mam’Mkhize which was one of the biggest hits with South African viewers since it’s debut on DSTV channel Mzansi Magic. The show looks into the chronicles of the Mkhize/Mpisane family, as well as those closest to them. Shauwn Mkhize is the main star of the show, however, her enviable life is filled with other important characters such as her son, Andile Mpisane and famous stepdaughter, Sbahle Mpisane. The reality show set a new record of 1.7 million views and was leading not only on reality shows but including dramas as well.
Speaking about the show, she has said;
“I’ve led a very private life. It was a long road to get me here. I decided to do this show because the media had long spoken for us.
“We wanted people to see us as we are.
“That was the initial plan but I enjoyed how people responded to me and my family. The love is overwhelming, I still can’t believe it myself”
Could this be a major blow to her lavish and extravagant lifestyle, do you think she will survive this knock?
