Television personality and businesswoman Bonang Matheba is suing Sunday World newspaper R10 million over ‘tax fraud’ cover story.
At the weekend, the Sunday World newspaper published a controversial cover story titled “Bonang tax fraud drama”. The newspaper claimed that Matheba was summonsed to appear in the Johannesburg Specialised Commercial Crime Court last week on charges of tax fraud.
According to Channel24, the claims were refuted by both Matheba’s PR team and the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA).
Davin Phillips the executive director of Celebrity Services Africa, who represent Bonang, told Channel24 that the article “contains factual errors” and that Bonang “was never summonsed to appear and never appeared on charges of tax fraud”
Bonang Matheba is now suing the Sunday World newspaper R10 million for “damages done to her good name and character”.
