Afro-soul musician Ringo Madlingozi could go to jail for up to 15 years or pay a heavy penalty if he is found guilty of tax fraud and theft, said a tax lawyer.

New Age reported that Madlingozi allegedly hasn’t been paying his employees’ Pay As You Earn (PAYE) to SARS, but has been deducting it from their salaries since 1999.

He reportedly owes SARS R1.5m in PAYE and R421 693 in VAT.

The star appeared in the Johannesburg Magistrate’s Court last week on more than 40 charges of theft.
