Terry Pheto allegedly ready to sing like a canary in Lotto fraud case

Terry Pheto, the star of Tsotsi and The Bold and the Beautiful, denied being involved when the Special Investigating Unit announced that they were looking into her.

She stated: I deny having any involvement in the reported alleged scheme. Additionally, I had no prior knowledge of a preservation order application against me and have not seen it. “The SIU stated that R3 million from a lottery grant that was intended for an “initiation program” was used to construct Pheto’s three-story home.

The Asset Forfeiture Unit of the NPA got a preservation order from the high court to freeze two Ocean Basket franchises, a BMW, and nine luxury properties.

Zimoja has since learned that Terry is not only cooperating with the SIU but also singing like a canary.


Zimoja is aware that Terry is allegedly having an affair with Professor Alfred Nevhutanda, a former chairman of the National Lotteries Commission.

Nevhutanda is married to the church pastor Tshilidzi. He is a director of at least 40 companies, some of which are in the mining, investment, and communications industries.


Additionally, he serves as the senior pastor at Higher Grace Church International.

A source said Nevhutanda, who has a mystery love-kid youngster with Terry, picked to help her with the cash from Public Lotteries Commission, instead of pay her kid support.

According to a person familiar with the situation,In this case, Terry is naming names. She would rather not get captured, and since she will transform into a state observer when the Birds of prey capture the thought fraudsters.”

The source claimed that Terry was also concerned about her reputation. The SIU got a preservation order in June to freeze a luxury property worth R27 million that was linked to Nevhutanda.

Nevhutanda is the sole director of the company Vhutanda Investments, which owns the mansion in the suburbs of Wonderboom in Pretoria.

The SIU stated,The National Lotteries Commission (NLC) is said to have provided Vhutanda Investments with funds in 2018 to purchase the property for approximately R27 million.

Professor Nevhutanda was both the director of Vhutanda Investments and the chairman of the board of the NLC when the property was purchased.”

Kaizer Kganyakgo, the SIU spokesperson, responded, “We don’t have a comment on that,” when asked for clarification.
