Kwaito artist and television personality Zola 7 allegedly suffered an epileptic seizure while behind the wheel and ploughed into a bevy of concrete tables and chairs of a spaza in Meadowlands, Soweto, last month, reports the Sunday World!
The publication reports that the high speed crash uprooted all the concrete tables, chairs, and smashed them to “smithereens”.
The Moja Love’s host of Hope with Zola 7 on Dstv allegedly sustained injuries to his neck and back.
Zola 7 was treated by ambulance personnel, who were called by spaza shop owners Tsholofelo Mpanzi and Busisiwe Tsitsi, and their neighbours.
According to the paper, the poignant details were revealed by the angry Mpanzi, Tsitsi and their neighbours on Thursday after Zola 7 allegedly failed to honour their agreement to replace the damaged tables and chairs.
Speaking to Sunday World from her Meadowlands home, Mpanzi said she was watching television with her mother on Sunday, January 31, at about 10pm when she heard a loud bang from outside.
She said (according to the article) when she went to investigate, she found that her concrete tables and chairs, which their clients use to enjoy the meals they sell, were damaged and broken into pieces.
“I went to the car to check who the driver was and found that it was Zola 7. When my mother and I asked him what happened, he threw a bottle out of the car and told us that he suffered some fits when he was driving and lost control of the car and hit our chairs and tables. He was complaining of neck and back pains.” Mpanzi alleges that Zola 7 pleaded with her not take pictures or call the police when she took out her cellphone to do so.
“He (Zola 7) said it was after curfew and if we called the police, he would be arrested for violating the lockdown regulations. He gave me his cellphone and pleaded with me to call his wife, but couldn’t do so because he couldn’t unlock the phone.” Mpanzi said she phoned the ambulance and when it arrived, the personnel treated him in it because he refused to go to hospital.
