Cape Town – South African actress and businesswoman, Sophie Ndaba has fired back following a report alleging that she had fallen on hard times after a bank sold her Johannesburg mansion.
Sunday World reported that Sophie lost her R2.2 million home after she “failed to service her bond with Mercantile Bank”.
She had been required to pay R22 347 in monthly instalments for 240 months. But she failed to honour the contract when she defaulted and was more than R80 000 in arrears,” the report said.
Ndaba allegedly owed the bank R1 089 588 08 and the banking group would possibly repossess her other assets after the Johannesburg High Court ruled against the actress, said the report.
The actress, however, took to Instagram to hit back at the publication for “poor research”, claiming that she sold her property through a property agent.

In the video, Ndaba slammed the publication for reporting that the house was sold and for saying that she was “ailing” and asked the publication to stop messing with her business.
She added that the shortfall was between her and the bank.
“I’m not ailing darling, do I look like an ailing person… Stop messing with my business, stop messing with my family, stop messing with my future. I am busy rewriting my future and I don’t need your help,” said the fuming actress in the video.
