Matheba faces tax fraud charges after she allegedly failed to pay personal tax between 2008 and 2017 and company tax between 2014 and 2017.
“We have been engaging with SARS on the matter. We have complied and we are in the process of making representations, and request a further postponement,” Matheba’s lawyer Charl Coetzee told the court.
Unlike her previous appearance, Matheba was in great spirits and indulged the media as she left the court.
“I’m feeling great, life is good,” she said.
The matter has been postponed to 27 November.
