Shauwn Mkhize, who together with her son, Andile Mpisane, have made headlines by buying Bloemfontein Celtic, was born into and raised by a politically active family in Umbumbulu, a village near eManzimtoti.

Sipho and Florence Mkhize, her late parents, were ANC activists under apartheid. In 1991, her father was allegedly slain by a police officer, ostensibly for political reasons. Her brother, Sbu Mkhize, was killed in a shoot-out with police in Isipingo a year after the tragedy.

Florence, her mother, was an ANC councillor in eThekwini until she died in 2008. She had begun a construction company, Zikhulise Construction, before her death, which was handed over to Shauwn. Shauwn had married Sbu Mpisane, a metro police officer, in 1991. Mpisane later left the force to work full-time with his wife in the business. Zikhulise Construction drove her to her current status as a multi-millionaire.

Net worth

According to Online celebrity publication Zalebs, she has a net worth of R300 million. Her company scored multimillion-rand tenders in eThekwini and KwaDukuza, where it was tasked with building RDP houses.

She made headlines in 2012 when she was arrested for allegedly trying to bribe an investigating officer who was probing her for alleged tax evasion. Sars had accused her of non-compliance. The charges were later withdrawn.

In 2016, Sars said the couple owed R141 million in taxes.

Mkhize is well known in social circles and has thrown many parties at her luxury home in La Lucia, which have been attended by celebrities and politicians, including Police Minister Bheki Cele.

Mkhize and Mpisane divorced in 2019 and she reverted to her maiden name. She also left the Royal Eagles football team she co-owned with Mpisane, and bought Real Kings, which was playing in the second division, and renamed the team Royal AM.

It is widely believed that Mkhize always wanted a team in the Premier Soccer League. Royal AM did well to finish on top of GladAfrica National First Division League and was due to be promoted to PSL when the league ended in May.

Her excitement disappeared when the PSL dispute resolution committee ruled that the second-placed Sekhukhune won the case against Polokwane City for an irregularity in the team they fielded, and it was Sekhukhune which was automatically promoted when the league ended.

Mkhize, also known as MaMkhize, is rumoured to have forked out R50 million for Celtic. Last year, she became a household name when DSTV’s Mzansi Magic aired her reality show, KwaMaMkhize, where she flaunted her bling lifestyle.
