The Kwela Tebza band member could be in serious trouble if there is any truth to the claims and, although he has yet to comment on the accusations, this has not stopped local tabloids from running wild with the story.
According to a report in this week’s Sunday World, a woman by the name of Susan Bresley is accusing Tebogo of scamming her out of nearly R15 000. The Jo’burg-based woman in question is said to have been conned out of the money back in 2017, and after gathering all her evidence, she has decided to open a case against Tebogo, who is nicknamed Edward Billion on social media.
The rumors haven’t been helped by the fact that there continues to be suspicion over how exactly Tebogo lerole obtains his money. Questions over Tebogo’s employment status have come up time and again over the last decade; compounded by the fact that Kwela Tebza last released music in 2009.
Police spokesperson, Granville Meyer confirmed that an investigation into Tebogo was currently underway when he said to Sunday World, “The suspect forged documents which led to the victim losing money. The case is still under investigation.
It remains to be seen if the case can be investigated appropriately considering that the accuser has waited over two years before finally opening a case against Tebogo, but if he is found guilty, he could be looking at a hefty penalty, although we don’t suspect he would spend a long time behind bars if sentenced to prison time.
When called for comment by the publication, both Tebogo and Khanyi distanced themselves from this report. What advice do you have for Tebogo who is currently facing fraud charges?
