NAME AND SHAME: Police in North West say a "welll-known celebrity" filled his car at a Caltex station then refused to pay - and drove off. Who was it?

MMABATHO - Police are searching for a celebrity who allegedly refused to pay for petrol at a service station in Mmabatho, North West police have reported.

"The man is a well-known celebrity and stays in Gauteng," said Brigadier Thulani Ngubani.

But police wouldn't say who he was because he had not yet been charged.


The man allegedly filled up his car at a Caltex service station in Mmabatho but refused to pay the full amount of R690.

"He was given a chance until Monday to pay for the petrol but he did not," Ngubani added. "We will work with Gauteng police and we expect to make an arrest soon."

We look forward to naming this fill-and-run person.
