A Kaizer Chiefs star recently opened up on some of his worst money decisions, one which involves losing money through a taxi.
What’s the story?
Siphosakhe Ntiya-Ntiya has come from humble beginnings in KZN to the limelight at Kaizer Chiefs. Having accumulated money during his tenure with Amakhosi, the left-back admits that he has made some mistakes with his moola along the way.
He reveals how purchasing two cars for very different reasons will go down as his worst money mistakes.
“The worst money mistake I ever made was when I got my second car and my third car,” Ntiya-Ntiya told Kaizer Chiefs TV’s My First Paycheque.
“For the second car since I am based in Johannesburg, I wanted to have a car back home not to drive back down to Durban. So I bought a car, and no one was able to drive back home so the car was just sitting there so next thing, flat tyres and problems with the car, so I had to sell it,” he said.
“You know when you buy a car the value is high but when you sell it, the value is low. That’s the worst thing I’ve done.
“For the third car, so I bought a van (taxi) for my brother to drive and we were still in the process of making a license for him, so I had to give the car to someone else to try and push while he was getting his stuff together.
“So when I gave that person the car, within a week the car was hijacked
“The bad decision I made there because I was trying to get into business – but I didn’t insure the car and I bought it cash. Now the car is no more. So I have lost somehow,” he concluded.
