By unknown | Feb 12, 2010 | COMMENTS [ 0 ]

TV ACTOR Israel Makoe, pictured, renowned for his portrayals of township thugs, made a brief appearance in the Hillbrow magistrate's court yesterday on a charge of robbery.

Makoe - popularly known as "GP ma Orange" - and two others are accused of robbing three people of their cellphones and R500 in Johannesburg last month.

They were arrested after a high-speed chase.

Makoe's tough looks earned him roles in productions such as the Oscar-winning film Tsotsi - and in Yizo Yizo, Isidingo and Gaz'lam.

Police said the three men were in a minibus when they pulled up next to their victims and robbed them. - Cecil Motsepe
