Actor, Thami Mngqolo lambasts Sunday Sun for false news about his car getting repossed.

Eh! to be a celebrity is hard sometimes. It seems that Thami is the latest victim of 'irresponsible' journalism. Claiming the 'Peoples Paper' reported a false story about his Audi A5 being repossessed.


The former Generations star posted an image of the story on his Instagram profile, stating that the journalist was unethical and spreading lies - basically.

Check out his statement below: 

''Why Must you Lie.?! Black Journalism in our country is Sadly irresponsible. 

In a world where people generally believe what they read, it is grossly misleading to type and print untruths. 

Not only is this story Untrue, it is baseless and a regurgitation of old LIES. 

Regrettably, for Journalists like Norman Masungwini, this is water off a Duck's back., and this self-effacing practice will repeat itself tomorrow and the day after at someone else's expense. 

I could rant and rave ad nauseum, but that wouldn't change the injustices you and your ilk continually perpetrate. 

My story and My truth is my own and unfortunately doesn't sell papers. 

Your paper and the murky waters in which it resides is a sad indictment of the current trend in sensationalist tabloid journalism that e continually fall prey to. 

I'm not reaching out for an applause, I'm just tryna tell my side of this story since you sadly failed to.

A few weeks ago, it was reported that Zahara's Audi A5 was also repossessed. Eish, what is it with Audi cars and Mzansi stars? 

Zahara kept mum about the article, we're surprised she hasn't sued the publication as well.  Zahara is currently trying to sue Somizi for his statements at the SAMAs this past weekend. Perhaps she will win and claim a few of Somizi's cool rides? Highly doubt it though.

Anyways, glad that is all cleared up. We doubt that Thami would let go of a ride he clearly loves so much. Check out all the pics 

Statement of love.
