Generations: The Legacy actress Zoe Mthiyane’s off the screen acts nearly landed her deeper in trouble with the law.

Zitha, as she is affectionately known within the popular SABC telenovela, appeared at the Randburg Magistrates Court in the week on charges of reckless and negligent driving.

Since her arrest in December last year, Mthiyane tried to write down her own script, which includes skipping her bail conditions of appearing in court till the case is finalized.

Her actions of failing to seem in court saw the court issuing a warrant of her arrest on three different occasions. The steam can reveal the primary warrant of her arrest was issued in December, shortly after she was arrested for reckless and negligent driving.

The warrant was then withheld for her next court appearance in January where she produced evidence that her failure to dig in court was compelling.

But in April, she was back at it again and did not appear in court and therefore the court issued another warrant of arrest. The court also canceled her R1 500 bail within the process.

On her next court appearance, she told the court that she was on self-isolation due to Covid-19. The court accepted her reasons and canceled the warrant and also reinstated her bail conditions. In June, the court issued another warrant of her arrest but again withheld it because the court was on lockdown after some court officials had tested positive for coronavirus.

Daily Sun reported last year that Mthiyane was arrested in Fourways for driving under the influence of alcohol.

The People’s Paper also can reveal that since her arrest, Mthiyane has been trying to evade prosecution by making representations to the Director of Public Prosecution at the Randburg Magistrates Court.

But all her representations did not convince the DPP. Her case was postponed to next month for mediation.
