Local House music DJ, DJ Shimza, whose real name is Ashley Raphala, took to social media to let fans know that his Mercedes-AMG G63 was allegedly stolen from his garage on Monday.
According to various car websites, Mercedes-AMG G63 will cost you anything between R2,5-million and R3-million.
Midrand police spokesperson sergeant Matome Tlamela confirmed to TshisaLIVE that a case of housebreaking and theft had been opened at the Midrand police station by the DJ’s helper.
She explained that the case would have to be transferred to Olievenhoutbosch as the incident happened at Blue Valley Golf Estate.
“I can confirm that a case was opened on Monday night by the helper, so the helper is the complainant. They reported housebreaking and theft. The incident happened at Blue Valley so the case will have to be transferred to the Olievenhoutbosch branch because that is their jurisdiction.”
DJ Shimza asked fans to help him on social media but his brother, Pontsho told TshisaLIVE that no one had come forward with any leads yet.
“So far we haven’t had any leads from social media. We’ve had people that think this is a joke and others that just haven’t been helpful.”
