Actress Terry Pheto has reportedly been implicated in more lotto fraud allegations, this time allegedly alongside her sister and fashion designer Thula Sindi.

In 2022, Terry’s name was among the nine names that were released by the Special Investigating Unit (SIU) in connection with the acquisition of properties funded by money received from Non-Profit Organizations (NPOs) through grant funding from the National Lotteries Commission (NLC).

Shedding light on Terry’s implication, SIU spokesperson Kaizer Kganyago explained in an interview with Newzroom Afrika that her name appeared in connection to the property that she was staying in.

Terry and Thula are reportedly under investigation for allegedly stealing R5 million of the lotto money that was issued for a charity project.


The SIU says that the NLC granted R5 million to Zibisibix, a non-profit company for a chicken farm project in December 2018.

After receiving the R5 million, the money was moved from the charity’s account to Terry, her sister, and Thula’s bank accounts.

Terry got R3.2 million in her personal and business accounts, and her sister got R124 000 and R315 000. Thula’s business also got R140 000.
