Muvhango actress out on bail for fraud

2013-08-23 11:54

The case against a local soapie actress and an accomplice who allegedly defrauded a businessman in Welkom, Free State, was postponed in the town’s magistrates’ court.

Nomathemba Mokeretla, who plays the role of a doctor in Muvhango, was granted R5 000 bail yesterday, Captain Stephen Thakeng said today.

Mokeretla (34) will appear, along with Liteboho Sithole (33) on September 18 on fraud charges.

“Mokeretla handed herself over to the Welkom police and appeared in court on Thursday,” Thakeng said.

In September 2011, the two women allegedly used a Welkom doctor’s trucks for their transport business and failed to pay him R300 000 he claimed they owed him, Thakeng said.

Sithole was arrested on November 29 2011.

In July this year, the doctor saw Mokeretla on television while watching the soapie on SABC and alerted police.
