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 magistrate's court, police said on Friday.

Nomathemba Mokeretla, who plays the role of a doctor in "Muvhango", was granted R5000 bail on Thursday, Captain Stephen Thakeng said.

Mokeretla, 34, would 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.
