Public reaction

@TVwithThinus shared a tweet announcing the new findings in Terry’s fraud case, and people were angry. Many South Africans are frustrated by the misuse of public funds and the lack of accountability, given that such fraud and corruption cases happen regularly.

A failed auction

TimesLIVE reports that 22 participants logged in for the online auction as no bidders were on the property. The star allegedly built the three-storey, triple-bedroom house with the money she reportedly looted from the National Lottery Commission (NLC) grant fund.


The investigation into allegations of fraud and corruption at the National Lotteries Commission has led to several individuals and organisations being implicated, including Terry Pheto. It is unclear what will happen next in Pheto’s case, but it is clear that the South African public is fed up with such misuse of public funds and that they demand action and accountability.
