The taxman is furiously knocking on the grave of the late kwaito star Mandoza demanding payment for his escalating tax bill.
Sunday World can exclusively reveal the award-winning mega star, real name Mduduzi Edmund Tshabalala, owed the SA Revenue Service more than R670000 by 2012.
The shocking amount, which is likely to bankrupt the musician’s indigent estate, was as a result of his failure to submit his personal tax returns for several years.
In a bid to recover what is due to him, the taxman successfully applied for judgment at the South Gauteng High Court in 2012 after the musician allegedly dilly dallied in settling the bill. It is alleged the bill has ballooned to more than R1-million due to the interest the account has accrued since the judgment was obtained.
A court document revealed the musician owed SARS more than R398000 plus R274500 in interest.
