In a surprising development, South African artist Londie London’s BMW 330i was seized by the police who have impounded the vehicle, revealing it to be a stolen car.
Ex-Boyfriend’s Gift Takes an Unfortunate Turn
The luxurious car was originally a gift from Londie London’s ex-boyfriend, Sphamandla Mabonga, last year.
Last March, Londie London proudly displayed the car on social media, unaware that it had allegedly been hijacked in KwaZulu-Natal. The vehicle was handed over to her by Mabonga.
Police Action Reveals Stolen Vehicle Connection
Sources close to the police revealed that the car was seized last month during investigations connecting it to a hijacking involving a security company in Eshowe, KwaZulu-Natal.
Legal Troubles Intensify for Sphamandla Mabonga
This revelation follows Mabonga’s recent legal issues, including charges related to a shooting incident outside Tempo Luxury Restaurant and Lounge in Sandton last month. The investigation is expanding to include other high-end vehicles, with police actively seeking a Bentley and a BMW i8.
The source further discloses that the investigation into Mabonga’s activities has uncovered several illegal firearms, resulting in charges of attempted murder and possession of an unlicensed firearm. Mabonga, who was hospitalized in January after sustaining gunshot wounds during the Sandton incident, is reportedly under police watch.
