So-called celebrity couple Mandla Mthembu and Khanyi Mbau are a good example of how not to use money.
You never know when the gods are going to smile at you with a multimillion-randlottery jackpot.
As we reported in this newspaper on Friday - and by our sister publication Sunday World yesterday - the high flyers are now seemingly down and out.
They can't pay rent and may lose one of their toy cars.
Mthembu obviously had a windfall and went on a spending spree that would have made Posh Spice green with envy.
Nothing wrong with flaunting it if you have got it, but some sense is needed too.
To Mandla and Khanyi we say: "He who is down need not fear a fall."
