Mabu holds a cameo role on the SABC1 educational weekday soapie.

The suspects are expected to appear again on 5 October.
The other two accused Portia Ndou, 38, and Brown Makumbe, 40, were remanded in custody until 17 July 2020 as another charge of contravening Immigration Act was added against them.
