Dineo is yet to give comment of an allegation levelled against her for a hit-and-run where a driver claims that he was injured.
An Ekurhuleni man has just accused Dineo Ranaka of ignoring him after she allegedly went head to head with his car in May.
Speaking in an interview, Paulos Mnguni says the crash happened on the R554 in Brakpan.
He claims that Dineo has been dodging his calls ever since the accident happened.
Paulos is now requesting that she pays out for thousands as his car, a Tata Indica, has been written off.
“I bought my car for R30 000 and since it’s written off, I want Dineo to pay me so I can get another one,” he stated.
The 52-year-old added that he needs to the money to get a new vehicle as he can no longer get to work like he used to.
He says he does not want to “damage her reputation, but she should accept that she was at fault”.
Paulos said that the robot had turned green for him to go ahead and as he was approaching the intersection, a white Land Rover, which was travelling in the opposite direction, turned without giving way for vehicles heading straight.
The crash allegedly left him with minor injuries.
Paulos claims Dineo told him that she did see him approaching but thought she could turn before him.
“Later, she changed her statement, saying I caused the accident. I feel Dineo doesn’t care. I’ve tried several times to resolve the matter peacefully way. And now I’m the one being blamed,” he told the publication.
He added that he had no idea who Dineo was until people at the scene recognised her.
Dineo is yet to make an open comment on the incident and was not present for comment when the contacted.
