Gospel artist Hlengiwe Mhlaba was in an altercation with a driver after a car accident in KwaZulu-Natal.
Siyabonga Msomi claimed that the singer crashed into the back of his car and is refusing to repair it.
The accident occurred on Tuesday, October 31, on the R74 between Estcourt and Mnambithi.
According to Msomi, Hlengiwe was driving at high speed and even overtook him at some point.
“I wasn’t happy with the way she was driving, especially because the weather was bad and the road was full of trucks.
“So, I decided to drive past her. I then noticed a cow in the middle of the road and immediately applied the brakes.
“This caused her to crash into my car, damaging the back bumper.
“I suspect she did not see the cow because she was following me very closely.”
After the accident, Mhlaba came out of her car and allegedly shouted at Msomi.
“I blame her for the accident because she did not keep a safe distance between my car and her car.
“Had she kept the distance, she would’ve seen the cow and avoided the accident. I told her this but she refused to take accountability.
“Instead, she shouted at me and blamed me for stopping for the cow. I expected her to apologize but she refused.
“She made it clear that she will not pay for this damage. A few days later I contacted her with the intention of getting a solution to this problem. I wanted her to fix my car or apologize.
“[Instead,] I received no joy from her. Unfortunately I don’t have car insurance and I am not going to take this any further,” an angry Msomi added.
“I’ll simply fix my car and let her be. I am very hurt because I respected her but she has shown me her true colors.”
Hlengiwe denies allegations
Hlengiwe confirmed the incident to Sunday World, and denied there was any cow on the road.
“Yes, I bumped into his car but it was his fault. I was driving behind him and [he] suddenly stopped for no reason.
“There was no cow in front of him, otherwise I’d have seen it. I never shouted at him.
“I even gave him my personal details for him to claim from his car insurance.
“Otherwise I am not going to apologize because he was at fault.”
