SCANDAL! actor Mbulelo Ndlazilwana is not off the hook yet.
The 21-year-old was bust at a brothel in Springs, Ekurhuleni last week.
Mbulelo – who plays the role of Scelo – was due to appear in court yesterday for a bail application but his name was not on the roll.
Gauteng police spokesman Captain Kay Makhubela confirmed that Mbulelo didn’t appear in court with the other arrested suspects.
“He has been released,” said Makhubela.
He added that five of the 16 people Mbulelo was arrested with on Thursday appeared in the Springs Magistrates Court yesterday charged with sexual exploitation and human trafficking.
The suspects were released on bail.
Makhubela said Mbulelo will have to wait for police investigations to be completed.
Mbulelo was arrested with six men and 11 women between the ages of 19 and 43 when police swooped in on a brothel following a tip-off from a 25-year-old woman who had escaped.
The woman who escaped is in a place of safety.
