‘Where’s neville?’: Fans question former ‘7de Laan’ star at court

2012-10-27 00:00

CAPE TOWN — “Where’s Neville? Is Neville okay?”

Former 7de Laan actor Sekoati Tsubane, who played Kabelo Padi, was appearing in court for alleged drunk driving, but fans were more interested in what had happened to the character Neville Meintjies.

Charmaine Meintjies (Vinette Ebrahim), the wife of Neville (Zane Meas) in the soap, got a phone call on the programme last week that he had been killed in an accident. But fans wanted to be sure.

Tsubane, waiting for his case to be called, seemed puzzled. “Who’s Neville?” he asked.

After a moment he realised people were asking about 7de Laan, and laughingly replied he didn’t know, because he’s no longer involved in the soap.

The case didn’t go ahead, because the prosecutor said the roll was too crowded and Tsubane’s lawyer said he had another appointment.

Tsubane was arrested on March 16 in Melkbosstrand when he failed to stop at a stop sign, after which traffic police tested him and allege that he was under the influence of alcohol.

The case will continue on November 15.
