Metro FM presenter Lerato Kganyago has allegedly moved out of the Steyn home she shared with businessperson Thami Ndlala.


City Press reports that the media personality Lerato Kganyago allegedly moved out of the Steyn City home she shared with Thami Ndlala and returned to her own house in Ruimsig, north of Johannesburg, a week ago.

The publication adds that cracks started appearing in their marriage after Ndlala opened a case of theft against their domestic worker and her husband at the Douglasdale Police Station on Wednesday (9 November).

It is believed Ndlala accused the domestic worker of stealing a television set and two watches worth R3 million (uninsured) from him.

However, his wife of two years raised eyebrows when she came out to defend the domestic worker and said she gave the household goods to her more than a year ago.

Such gifts, she added, were not unusual, as the domestic worker and her husband had often been given items such as clothing and household goods.

A friend of the couple told City Press:
“The domestic worker and her husband were arrested at the Douglasdale Police Station. They had left with Lerato when she moved back into her own house last week. They’ve been working for her for over 10 years, since long before she married Thami.”
Sources also revealed that Ndlala allegedly laid the charges of theft on Wednesday to spite Kganyago, as she is close to the domestic worker.
“The complainant alleged that, on the above-mentioned date [8 November 2022] and at the above-mentioned time [9 pm], he was looking for his items when he realised that the television set and two Patek Philippe? watches were missing. The watches are worth R3 million and are not insured. He has two domestic workers from Zimbabwe and suspects one of them, who has access to his house,” read the police statement regarding the case.
Police spokesperson Mavela Masondo revealed to City Press that police were investigating a case of theft and that the suspects had appeared at the Randburg Magistrates’ Court on Friday (11 November).

“The couple was arrested on Wednesday and still hadn’t been charged by Thursday when Lerato sent her lawyers to try to get them out because no one knew what was happening,” said the source.
Another individual said that the domestic worker and her husband were allegedly owed close to R76 000 by Ndlala, who had not paid them for work they had been doing in his hotel in Northcliff.

“Lerato and Thami have separated acrimoniously. Their case is with their respective lawyers,” added the person.
Ndlala denied the allegations of their separation when he was contacted:

“Her moving into the house she owned before we got married isn’t a new thing. She also stays there when I’m travelling, just to ensure that things are in order at the house.”
Ndlala also revealed that Kganyago had nothing to do with the case against the domestic workers, as only his belongings had allegedly been stolen.

Kganyago had not responded to The South African on the matter by the time of going to print.
