Metro FM presenter Lerato Kganyago’s marriage to rich businessman Thami Ndlala ends in tears

Metro FM presenter Lerato Kganyago’s marriage to businessperson Thami Ndlala is about to come to an end.

According to reliable sources, Kganyago allegedly moved out of the Steyn City home she shared with Ndlala and returned to her own house in Ruimsig, north of Johannesburg.

Cracks started appearing in the power couple’s union after Ndlala opened a case of theft against their domestic worker and her husband at the Douglasdale Police Station on Wednesday.

The businessperson accused the domestic worker of stealing a television set and two watches worth R3 million (which were uninsured) from him.

However, his wife of two years raised eyebrows when she came out in defence of the domestic worker, deposing her own police statement to the effect that the items to which her husband was referring had not been stolen, but were rather given to the helper 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.

Now sources close to the couple have revealed that the dispute is just the tip of the iceberg, as friction has been brewing in the Kganyago and Ndlala love nest for some time.

A friend of the couple said that the arrest of the domestic worker – who is still in police custody – had pushed media personality Kganyago to boiling point.

According to the source, the domestic worker and her husband were both taken into custody at the Douglasdale Police Station. Lerato had left with them when she returned to her own home last week. They have been employed by her for more than 10 years, long before she married Thami.

Ndlala allegedly laid the charges of theft on Wednesday to spite Kganyago, as she is close to the domestic worker.

Police spokesperson Mavela Masondo confirmed that police were investigating a case of theft and that the suspects had appeared at the Randburg Magistrates’ Court on Friday.

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 and Kganyago were married in a traditional ceremony at her Boksburg home on March 21, 2020. The festivities later continued at Ndala’s then home in Sandhurst.

Ndlala denied the allegations of their separation, saying that Kganyago visited their Ruimsig home regularly, especially at month-end.

According to Ndlala, it’s nothing new for her to live in the home she owned before their wedding. Additionally, she stays there when he is away to make sure everything is in order.

He added that Kganyago had nothing to do with the case against the domestic workers, as only his belongings had allegedly been stolen.

Another source close to the couple said that Kganyago “gave her statement in support of her domestic worker because she truly understands what it feels like to be marginalised based on your social standing”.
