MBOMBELA – Sifiso Innocent Mabuza (39) who was sought by the Hawks’ Serious Commercial Crime for contravention of the Tax Administration Act handed himself over on Monday.
He faces charges of fraud after an investigation was conducted. It revealed how he fraudulently submitted tax returns to the South African Revenue Services (SARS).
According to the Hawks, this took place between 2018 and 2021 when Mabuza was the director of Shishila Rural Trading. The investigation team traced Mabuza and he promised to hand himself over but never pitched.
A warrant for his arrest was issued, and he eventually handed himself over through his lawyer. During his appearance, it was brought to the attention of the court that Mabuza has owned over 10 properties in Mpumalanga, Gauteng, Durban and Limpopo.
All addresses have to be verified before his attempt to apply for bail.
The case was postponed to June 3.
