Mzansi Celebs

Shauwn Mkhize’s alleged net worth revealed

No doubt she is one of Mzansi’s finest and she is not just a celeb but one of the female multi-millionaires in Mzansi. We can all agree she has made all sorts of headlines from fraud allegations to buying Bloemfontein Celtic.

Well she, was born into and raised by a politically active family in Umbumbulu, a village near eManzimtoti. Her late parents, Sipho and Florence Mkhize were ANC activists during apartheid. Her father was killed, apparently for political reasons, allegedly by a policeman in 1991. The tragedy was followed a year later by the death of her brother, Sbu Mkhize when he was killed in a shoot-out with police in Isipingo.

Her mother, Florence, was an ANC councillor in eThekwini and died in 2008. Before her death, she had started a construction company that was handed over to Shauwn and was named Zikhulise Construction.

By this time Shauwn had married metro police officer Sbu Mpisane in 1991. Mpisane later resigned from the force to work full-time in the business with his wife. It was Zikhulise Construction that propelled her into what she is today, a multi-millionairess.

However, she has a net worth of R300 million. Her company scored multimillion-rand tenders in eThekwini and KwaDukuza, where it was tasked with building RDP houses.

She made headlines in 2012 when she was arrested for allegedly trying to bribe an investigating officer who was probing her for alleged tax evasion. Sars had accused her of non-compliance. The charges were later withdrawn.

However, in 2016, Sars said the couple owed R141 million in taxes. Mkhize is well known in social circles and has thrown many parties at her luxury home in La Lucia, which have been attended by celebrities and politicians, including Police Minister Bheki Cele.

Mkhize and Mpisane divorced in 2019 and she reverted to her maiden name. She also left the Royal Eagles football team she co-owned with Mpisane, and bought Real Kings, which was playing in the second division, and renamed the team Royal AM.

It is widely believed that Mkhize always wanted a team in the Premier Soccer League. After failing to win legal battles to secure Royal AM top-flight status she did the unthinkable.

MaMkhize bought Celtic for a whopping R50 million. Last year, she became a household name when DSTV’s Mzansi Magic aired her reality show, KwaMaMkhize, where she flaunted her bling lifestyle.
