Suspects associated with the shooting incident involving former Muvhango actress and club hostess Tebogo Thobejane made a court appearance at the Alexandra Magistrates Court yesterday. They face charges of attempted murder. Initially detained in April for a separate offence, the suspects were later implicated in the attack on Thobejane.

Flight to Dubai for Safety

Last October, Thobejane, along with a friend and their driver, was leaving Saints Champagne Lounge in Sandton around 11 PM when three men approached their vehicle and opened fire. While Thobejane escaped unscathed, her friend sustained injuries and required over a month of hospitalization.

In the aftermath, fearing for her safety, Thobejane fled to Dubai. Speaking to ZiMoja, she expressed her need for answers, stating, “I’m still living in fear because I don’t know why I am being marked by hitmen.” After a brief stay in Dubai, she has since returned to South Africa, though the mystery of who orchestrated the attack remains unsolved as the suspects have yet to confess.

Tebogo once accused her ex-friend Inno Morolong of the shooting as they were publicly fighting at the time.

Ongoing Fear and Uncertainty

With no trial date set, Thobejane continues to grapple with fear and uncertainty. Reflecting on the attack, she remarked, “It’s disheartening to live in fear due to the unknown. All I desire is to find happiness with my family and lead a peaceful life at home.” Despite the suspects being in police custody, Thobejane hopes the ongoing investigations will reveal more details. She is eager for the ordeal to end so she can move forward, stating, “I just want the law to take its course.” The suspects, who are still seeking bail, have had their case postponed to September 26 for further police investigations.
