DJ won't pay for or give wife car

Top Thobela FM DJ and producer Matome David Lebepe is driving a luxury car but is four months behind in his repayments.

The car Lebepe is driving, a top-of-the-range Mazda 3 sedan, belongs to his wife, who he is in the process of divorcing.

Lebepe's wife, Irene Malatjie-Lebepe, a doctor at the Polokwane Hospital, says her soon-to-be ex-husband has not paid the car's monthly instalments for the four months they have been separated.

The couple went their separate ways in September after Lebepe was found to have been cheating.

Now the bank that financed Malatjie-Lebepe's car is demanding money from her.

She, too, is in a predicament because Lebepe refuses to pay for the car or give it back her.

Malatjie-Lebepe claims Lebepe has been running around with other women, enticing them with the car.

Yesterday a fuming Malatjie- Lebepe told Sowetan she was tired of her husband's "hide-and-seek" tactics and that all she wanted was her property returned to her.

The couple was married for nine months.

"My union with Lebepe has been a marriage from hell," said Malatjie-Lebepe, a 42-year-old mother of two.

The medic said she had reported the case to the police after the bank pestered her to pay the outstanding bill.

"Lebepe has a car allowance from his company, but he won't pay any of the instalments," she said.

Sowetan has also established that Lebepe earns more than R250000 a year and has a car allowance of more than R3500 a month.

An employee of the Motor Finance Corporation in Pretoria, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said they had tried to get the car back from Lebepe but he had proven to be "too elusive".

Approached for comment yesterday, Lebepe said he would not pay for the car because it was registered in his wife's name.
