South African Bulelwa Zahara Mkutukana reportedly turned herself into the police today following her failure to show up in court on tax-related charges.
According to TshishaLIVE, the specialised commercial crimes court, sitting in Palm Ridge magistrate’s court, found her guilty of contempt of court, after failing to honour her court appearances several times.
NPA spokesperson Phindi Mjonondwane disclosed that Zahara’s company named, Zahara Trading (Pty) Ltd, failed to submit personal and company income tax returns to Sars.
While pursuing her career amidst the tax charges, the singer had been working on her 5th album since late 2020, and she announced that the project will hit the music market by the end of this year.
Zahra is expected to return back in court on June 25 for the disclosure of the docket for the Sars tax return case.
