The tax evasion case leveled against media personality Bonang Matheba has been postponed till November 14, 2018, so that her legal team can make necessary submissions.
The 31-year-old< made an appearance at the Crime’s Court in Johannesburg on this morning for some answerings.
She faces a total of 15 counts of contravening the tax laws of South Africa, after failing to submit her income tax returns from 2007 until 2017, and outstanding company tax from 2014 to 2017.
NPA regional spokesperson Phindi Louw Mjonondwane says the case brought against the media personality is about promoting tax compliance. According to the spokesperson.
Everyone has a responsibility to pay their dues,” she said outside court. “The tax revenues are used to cater for South Africans who cannot afford. So it is very important for each and every South African to play a role in promoting a healthy revenue that will in turn assist others.”
Dressed in a grey coat and black shawl Matheba arrived at the court early enough and was able to evade the media paparazzi but it was unavoidable when she was about leaving as the court instructed her to leave the premises the same way she came in as there will be no preferential treatment for her.
