Traditional Music Singer Mmaausi’s Car Stolen At Satma Awards – The award-winning traditional singer Mmaausi’s car has been stolen at the 14th South African Music Achievement Awards (Satma) in Mmabatho in the North West, police in the province confirmed on Sunday.
The vehicle, a black Toyota Wish seven-seater with Botswana registration plates, was stolen from the Mmabatho Convention Centre parking lot amid the Satmas on Saturday night. Mmaausi, whose real name is Galaletseng Lekoma, was awarded the best female artist award and later discovered her car was missing from the parking lot.
North West South African Police Service (SAPS) spokeswoman Colonel Adele Myburgh said a case of motor vehicle theft had been opened.
“It was the only case reported for motor vehicle theft on Saturday night,” she said.
Mmaausi addressed the African News Agency (ANA) in a telephonic interview that she received a phone call from a man in Orange Farm, south of Johannesburg in Gauteng, who said he had picked up documents belonging to her.
