Suspects associated with the shooting incident involving former Muvhango actress and club hostess Tebogo Thobejane appeared in the Alexandra Magistrates Court yesterday facing charges of attempted murder. The suspects were initially arrested in April for an unrelated crime but were subsequently linked to the attack on Thobejane.

Incident and Escape to Dubai

In October of last year, around 11 PM, Thobejane was leaving Saints Champagne Lounge in Sandton with a friend and their driver when three men approached their vehicle and opened fire. Although Thobejane was unharmed, her friend was injured and hospitalized for over a month. Fearing for her safety, Thobejane fled to Dubai shortly after the incident. She expressed to ZiMoja her desire for answers, stating, “I’m still living in fear because I don’t know why I am being targeted by hitmen.” Thobejane has since returned to South Africa but remains anxious as the suspects have yet to reveal any details about the attack.
