Sonia Mbele a no-show in court again

Celebrated actress and TV Producer Sonia Mbele is making headlines after she pulled a no-show in court today at the Johannesburg Magistrates’ Court after being dragged to the courts over tax evasion.

The media personality again submitted a medical certificate justifying her absence in the ongoing court proceedings. Sonia Mbele is being charged with tax evasion. Two other directors, Yolisa Gqunta and Rebone Sesing of The Real Housewives of South Africa (Pty) Ltd, are also accused of the same offence. This is the second time the celebrated media personality has snubbed court proceedings, citing medical reasons.

However, in the backdrop of her failure to appear before the courts, the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) spokesperson Phindi Mjonondwane made it known that the court has given Sonia Mbele the last opportunity to appear before the courts of the law on 20 October.

“The court has granted the last opportunity to Ms Mbele to attend the proceedings, in that it marked the postponement as final, following her submission of a medical certificate for the second time where she could not attend court, citing ill health. The trio stand accused of 42 tax evasion charges between 2019 and 2022. According to court papers, the trio failed to submit Pay-As-Earn (PAYE) and tax returns for The Real Housewives of Durban.
