Lerato Kganyago’s Hotel Saga Unfolds

TV and radio presenter, Lerato Kganyago, has been accused by a local news outlet of lying about owning the 12 Hillel on Villa and Spa in Northcliff, Johannesburg. 

The hotel was understood to be a Valentine’s Day gift from her husband, Thami Ndlala; however, the outlet claimed on Sunday, 17 July, that it is still owned by her husband and his two other business partners.

A source explained: “The Valentine’s Day gift noise that she made was just a publicity stunt. Thami did not buy her that hotel. She just featured as a face and used the opportunity because her fans were looking forward to her gift for this year.”

However, Kganyago was quick on Instagram and laughed off the accusation, saying: “I’ll always have the last laugh. Watch Black Twitter get excited over cheap journalism … wonder what will they [sic] say when they find out the actual truth. Hope they keep the same energy.”  

Ndlala was also unimpressed with the claims, simply telling a different local media outlet, “I don’t know anyone by the names of Ndu and Tshepo”, which are supposedly the names of his business partners.

“As you are aware, we were celebrating Valentine’s Day and the hotel was a present to my wife.”
