The LPC chair, Janine Myburgh, clarified that his disbarment prevents him from practicing law, offering legal advice, representing clients in court, or providing any legal services to the public.

Despite his determination to persevere, Teffo’s situation took a turn for the worse when reports of his arrest surfaced online. On the 1st of August 2023, he was arrested on multiple charges and detained at the Pretoria Central police station.

The Gauteng police spokesperson, Col Dimakatso Nevhuhulwi, confirmed the arrest and stated that Teffo is expected to appear in the Pretoria magistrate’s court on Thursday.

According to the confirmation statement, Teffo, aged 53, was apprehended for fraud, assault, malicious damage to property, and trespassing.
