JOHANNESBURG - The tax fraud case against media personality Bonang Matheba has been postponed to November to allow her legal team time to make representation.

Matheba made a brief appearance in the Specialised Commercial Crimes Court for outstanding taxes between 2007 and 2017.

Wearing a grey plaid designer coat, Matheba appeared for the first time for alleged tax evasion.

She’s been charged for dodging personal taxes from 2007-2017 and company tax from 2014-2017.

A spokesperson for the Gauteng National Prosecuting Authority, Phindi Mjonondwane, says Matheba is facing a number of counts relating to non-compliance of tax laws.

“Eleven on her personal capacity, and four counts on her company.”

Matheba is expected back in the dock on 14 November and has been warned by the magistrate that a warrant for her arrest will be issued should she fail to appear.
