Phindile Gwala taken to court over alleged electricity bill

Imbewu Actress Phindile Gwala-Ngandu is allegedly having problems paying her electricity bill, and if she doesn’t comply, she might find herself living in the dark. According to City Press, the actress and Bramley Mews Body Corporate are at odds over the actress’ failure to pay a sizable electrical bill.






The publication reports that the body corporate is requesting a court order to cut the actress’ electrical supply if she doesn’t pay the R115 641.98 electricity bill.

According to the publication, the applicant (Bramley Mews Corporate) is asking for an injunction against the respondent (Phindile Gwala) to force her to pay the applicant money for unpaid levies and power bills.

In addition, the applicant asks for a court order to prevent the respondent from cutting off the section’s electrical supply until all back taxes and electricity charges have been paid in full. This specific relief has made the filing of this court application out of the aforementioned honorable court necessary.

Additionally, the body corporate manager disclosed to the publication that the actress received a court judgment for non-payment in June 2020 already.

“A warrant of execution was issued against the respondent’s moveable property on or about March 22, 2022, and judgment was granted against the respondent for the amount of R70 809.95. To date, the respondent has been unable to pay all special levies, regular levies, garbage recoveries, and sewer/effluent levies in full. They have also alternately omitted to do so. Therefore, payments to the applicant become due and payable,” said the body corporate manager to City Press.

According to the publication, the actress’ failure to pay will result in more problems for the body corporate.

Phindile has not refuted or conceded the allegations.
