Social media exploded with snaking images of luxury cars, with one Sam Mshengu, better known as ‘Sam Holdings’, stealing the spotlight. The businessman with a taste for expensive fast cars set out to ‘shut down’ the N3 ahead of his trip to the Durban July as part of his self-proclaimed, ‘Sam’s Convoy’. Mshengu, or Sam Holdings – the name of his logistics company, appears to have interests in mining and logistics.
He was trending at number two on social media on Friday, even ahead of the #DurbanJuly trend at some point. His convoy apparently had 72 cars, with at least 10 cars owned by him. Amongst the cars, there was a Mercedes Benz G wagon, an A-class AMG, a Vito bus, a Porsche, amongst others.
According to his social media pages, Sam is the director of Sam Holdings Group, a logistics company which boasts at least 50 trucks.
He is also in the coal mining industry and apparently transports coal to Eskom.
We are yet to see Tbo Touch’s convoy, if he will have one this year. Though some on social media have praised his success, others have criticised his decision to spend R23 million on cars.
