Inside actress Thuli Phongolo’s mansion
On Thursday former Generations actress Thuli Phongolo shared an image of her newly purchased Johannesburg mansion.
Phongolo shared an image from her driveway holding a printed photograph of her mansion.
Speaking about her latest achievement, the actress noted that she has been holding back celebrating her achievement in the public eye.
“I hold back a lot when it comes to celebrating and truly showing gratitude for my wins because I wonder in my head a lot… but there it is, once an idea, now my reality. Thank you GOD, my ancestors and my loved for all the support and encouragement I needed to take this step. Ngiyabonga,” wrote Phongolo.
Meanwhile, Terry Pheto’s Braynston has reportedly been auctioned for less than the asking price.
The actress has been embroiled in a multi-million rand alleged National Lotteries Commission corruption scandal. A preservation order was recently obtained by the Special Investigating Unit (SIU) on her property, which they claim was built with funds siphoned from the National Lottery Commission (NLC) grant fund.
According to various reports, the funding was intended to launch a public campaign and implement culturally sensitive medical interventions to achieve traditional circumcision. Among the luxury home’s features are three bedrooms, two bathrooms, a rooftop entertainment area, a maid, and three bedrooms.
The spokesperson for the Special Investigating Unit, Kaizer Kganyago said, “There were no takers unfortunately, there were people who registered, about 28- people, but none of them put an offer on it, which is a very strange thing. The house is still available. What’s going to happen now, they will find other ways of dealing with the sale. All that we want is the money back, so that we can take that money back to the lottery, so that it is used for what it was intended for.”
In 2022, Terry issued a statement refuting the alleged fraud and corruption allegations leveled against her. Her statement came after the Special Investigating Unit (SIU) seized a number of assets, and businesses including luxury cars ending the investigations.
“I am dismayed to discover that I am the subject of a Special Investigation Unit probe into allegations of fraud relating to funding by the National Lotteries Commission. I deny any involvement in the alleged scheme that has been reported on. I also had no prior knowledge of an application to obtain a preservation order against me, and have no sight of this order,” she said.
