Former Generations: The Legacy Actor’s Bread Theft Charges Withdrawn
After a year long battle in courts, Ex- Generations The Legacy actor and Abo Mzala veteran actor Thembile Botman – who was last year charged with bread theft criminal indictment has finally got his charges withdrawn.
“Some members of the community had allegedly embarked on a violent protest on 16 September on what appeared to be related to service delivery,”
During the protest, members of the community burnt down ANC councilors’ houses.
While other members of the community were charged together with Mr. Botman and are out on R1 000 bail, his robbery charges were withdrawn earlier this year.
Last Friday, charges of malicious damage to property and public violence were withdrawn leaving him a free man.
It is no secret how much strain the whole debacle had on his personal life, especially on his job.
His lawyer Gcina Dlanjwa said in a statement:(Mr. Thembile Botman) ” fell out of favor with fans who considered him a role model when he featured on various TV series including Generations The Legacy and Abo Mzala.”
