What’s the story?
Siphosakhe Ntiya-Ntiya has come from humble beginnings in KZN to the limelight at Kaizer Chiefs. Having accumulated money during his tenure with Amakhosi, the left-back admits that he has made some mistakes with his moola along the way.
“For the third car, so I bought a van (taxi) for my brother to drive and we were still in the process of making a license for him, so I had to give the car to someone else to try and push while he was getting his stuff together.
“So when I gave that person the car, within a week the car was hijacked
“The bad decision I made there because I was trying to get into business – but I didn’t insure the car and I bought it cash. Now the car is no more. So I have lost somehow,” he concluded.
He reveals how purchasing two cars for very different reasons will go down as his worst money mistakes.
“The worst money mistake I ever made was when I got my second car and my third car,” Ntiya-Ntiya told Kaizer Chiefs TV’s My First Paycheque.
“For the second car since I am based in Johannesburg, I wanted to have a car back home not to drive back down to Durban. So I bought a car, and no one was able to drive back home so the car was just sitting there so next thing, flat tyres and problems with the car, so I had to sell it,” he said.
“You know when you buy a car the value is high but when you sell it, the value is low. That’s the worst thing I’ve done.
