Repo men leave Kenny stranded
WHILE other footballers were kicking the ball in preparation for their league games on Monday, football legend Kenny Niemach was kicking the air in frustration when repo men left him stranded on the road after they repossessed his car.
Niemach had allegedly been dodging them for almost two years.
The former Kaizer Chiefs and Mamelodi Sundowns goal poacher was finally cornered this week and relieved of his sleek BMW 5 Series.
Niemach was in arrears of almost R600 000 after failing to pay for the car he bought for R750 500 in 2012.
Attempts to contact Niemach drew a blank as his cellphone was off all week. He did not respond to SMSes left for him.
A witness said two hulky repo men cornered the retired footie on the West Rand and confiscated the vehicle, in what resembled a hijacking scene.
The witness said the repo men had been waiting for Niemach on a road next to the fancy Featherbrooke Estate, Krugersdorp, where he had been conducting coaching clinics for Lionel Messi wannabes. They were apparently acting on a tip-off.
They blocked him and asked him to step out of the car after they introduced themselves, said the man, who asked not to be named. They then ordered him to hand over the keys and a mini scuffle erupted when Niemach refused and clung to the keys.”
After they took the keys, Niemach demanded that they show him the court order before they took the car.
They showed it to him and asked him to sign it, but he refused and said he would take the matter to court.
The witness said the repo guys then hit the road, leaving Niemach in a cloud of dust.
We just looked and laughed at him as he kicked the air in frustration when they drove off in his car.”
A bank employee familiar with the incident confirmed that Niemach’s wheels were taken away. The car was taken to… storage and would be evaluated before we auction it.”
