Following his miraculous escape last weekend when he wrecked a R2-million supercar outside Mthatha in the Eastern Cape, controversial businessman Gayton McKenzie already has his eyes on a multi-million rand Maybach limousine.
McKenzie, the chairman of Kenny Kunene's growing nightclub empire ZAR, was travelling in a convoy of flashy cars on the R61 to Ngcobo when his white Audi R8 Spyder flew off the road, crashed through a fence and came to a stop in a field.
In the process, the vehicle knocked down an Eskom power pylon, cutting electricity to parts of Ngcobo.
In the car with him was former Miss SA Teen Moloko McKenzie, who was knocked unconscious.
Thankfully McKenzie managed to free himself from the totalled sports car, pulled Moloko free of the seat and carried her to safety.
McKenzie, a former prisoner, his business partner Kunene and others were returning to Gauteng after attending the wedding of President Jacob Zuma's daughter Dudu and businessman Lonwabo Sambudla over the Easter weekend
The accident was witnessed by several in the convoy, and Kunene was following the R8 in his black Lamborghini convertible.
"We're all just glad that Gayton is okay. It was absolutely horrifying but the important thing is that he is okay," said Kunene.
"He has hurt his leg really badly and cannot drive at the moment. So after he attends meetings he goes straight home to relax because he needs to recover," said Kunene.
"Gayton was simply happy to be alive," added Kunene. -Saturday Star
