Bonang Matheba will be appearing in the Johannesburg Specialised Commercial Crimes Court on Thursday to faces charges against her for fraud regarding both her personal and business taxes.
Queen B and her team have been denying the allegations since they were reported in a news publication in August, however, it appears that rumours were true all along.
Sunday World first published an article which revealed that the media personality had been summonsed to appear in court to face charges of tax fraud, but Queen B slammed the newspaper for the accusations and decided to take legal action against them.
Briefly.co.za previously reported that Bonang wanted to sue Sunday World for R10 million in damages for tarnishing her reputation but the editor of Sunday World, Mapula Nkosi stood by the story and claimed that their sources were credible.
The Citizen reports that Mapula recently issued a statement which explained that Sunday World approached Phindi Louw-Mjonondwane, a spokesperson for the National Prosecuting Authority to verify that the Hawks had indeed opened a case against Bonang before they printed the story.
Mapula went on to say that he respects Bonang’s decision to take legal action against them however, he claims that the three sources they used assured them that the information they received was legitimate.
