MaMkhize amid R37m SARS woes

Multimillionaire Shauwn “MaMkhize” Mkhize recently reacted to her DStv Premiership side, Royal AM Football Club, surviving relegation.

The embattled reality TV star, whose been making headlines for allegedly dodging to pay the taxman, took to her Instagram account to express her relief.


Thwihli Thwala, as Royal AM is affectionately known, completed the 2023/24 season in 23th place with 33 points. The football team survived relegation by only two points as their fellow KwaZulu-Natal side, Richards Bay Football Club, managed to colled 31 points – therefore qualifying for the PSL promotion/relegation playoffs.

Reacting to the results, MaMkhize wrote: “Sporting a smile and breathing in a deep sigh of relief as we drew to an end, this challenging soccer season – a weight lifted off our shoulders!

“Now, I can savour the little joys without the looming threat of relegation! Echoing the famous words of Coach Thobejane, ‘Football can kill you, a real death.’”


MaMkhize is currently embroiled in a South African Revenue Service (SARS) scandal and is at risk of losing 13 luxury vehicles under a family trust called Shandi Trust. Some of the cars include a Rolls Royce Cullinan, Porsche Urus, Mercedes-Maybach, 2 BMW X6, and a BMW X5.

This is after SARS applied for an execution order at the Pietermaritzburg High Court on 9 May, as the businesswoman reportedly owes more than R37 million in unpaid taxes.

According to EyeWitness News last week, the curators visited the businesswoman’s property last week, but could not gain access.

In February this year, MaMkhize made headlines when her soccer team’s multimillion-rand sponsorship deal with the Msunduzi Local Municipality in Pietermaritzburg was investigated by Carte Blanche.

The controversial agreement, which was signed in July 2023, saw the capital city of KwaZulu-Natal offering the Premier Soccer League (PSL) side R27 million over three years in exchange for the club’s usage of the Harry Gwala Stadium.

However, the deal has been scrutinised by the Democratic Alliance, which applied to the Pietermaritzburg High Court late last year, “declaring the impugned decisions unlawful” and requesting that they be reviewed and set aside.
