Having a vehicle repossessed in South Africa
Having your vehicle repossessed is the worst-case scenario for both you and your lender, according to DMV.org. Put, vehicle repossession means your lender —whether a bank, credit union or dealership— takes back your vehicle because you've failed to make the monthly payments.
Living in an essentially materialistic world, success is often measured by the fancy and expensive things we own. Letting go of her prized possession for all to see couldn't have been easy for Potsiso.
Mzansi responds with words of encouragement and support
Although a very bitter moment for Potsiso, many netizens responded with supportive comments, commending her for boldly letting go of the financial burden instead of forcing matters to avoid the shame of having a car repossessed.
