SA’s new national anthem KOZE KUSE composer Mondli Ngcobo, is a very sad man.
This after he fell victim to a smash-and-grab incident with a hired kombi outside the swanky Cubana Lounge in Cape Town during the ANC’s recent 103rd anniversary.
A source told the People’s Paper that Mondli and his friends were travelling in the hired vehicle when they stopped at the local chillout spot to party.
Said the source: “Mondli was with his entourage having fun in the club while thugs helped themselves to their belongings.
“When they came out of the club in the wee hours of Sunday morning, Mondli found the kombi broken into and its windows smashed,” the source continued.
Sunday Sun has learnt that the thugs left with a laptop, ID book, clothes, iPads and DJ equipment that were locked inside the kombi.
According to Mondli, the stolen items are estimated to be worth about R500 000.
He said: “I’m very disappointed. I think the car guards saw it and they even told us we were parked in a secure place. “But to my surprise, as we got out of the club we found the kombi with broken windows and nothing inside. “They could at least have left my ID book,” he said. “I won’t say it’s bad luck because crime is everywhere in the country. It’s just that I wasn’t expecting this.
“Thinking about the music and laptop breaks my heart. I guess it’s back to the drawing board for me,” said a sad Mondli.
