Media personality and businesswoman Bonang Matheba appeared before the Specialised Crimes Court on Wednesday, where her legal team requested a postponement until 27 November.

A calm-looking Matheba, who is accused of not paying her personal tax between 2008 and 2017, was accompanied by her father Gampi Matheba.

The judge granted the postponement, allowing her legal team time to finalise their representations to present to the court.

News of Matheba's tax drama first surfaced in August, when the Sunday World ran a story titled "Hawks pounce on Bonang as SARS zooms in on taxes".

At the time, Matheba's team said the claims were "factually incorrect".

Leaving the court on Monday, Matheba said: "Life's good."

Meanwhile, "Generations: The Legacy" star Rapulana Seiphemo on Tuesday admitted to contravening tax laws when he failed to submit his returns.

The popular television actor - popularly known as Tau Mogale - failed to submit his income tax returns from 2013 to 2017. The South African Revenue Services says Seiphemo owes more than R48 000 in unpaid tax.

During proceedings on Tuesday at the Specialised Commercial Crimes Court, State prosecutor Duduzile Robertse revealed that there were ongoing engagements with defence regarding an admission of guilt fine.

The matter was postponed to 28 November.
