DJ Zinhle's boyfriend Brendon Naidoo accused of fraud
New boyfriend of one of South Africa's most respected DJs Zinhle Jiyane, Brendon Naidoo, has allegedly been enriching himself by scamming retired teachers and business people.
The affected parties opened a case of fraud against Naidoo at Sandton police station on Friday.
Naidoo allegedly creamed up to R15-million from his accusers, claiming he was going to invest their cash in forex trade.
Rustenburg businessman Thapelo Tshepe said he transferred about R3-million into Naidoo's account in 2014.
"Naidoo approached me back in 2014 and told me we could make money with forex trading. He convinced me with bank statements and showed me how much profit he made from forex trading.
"Brendon sent me a picture of himself posing next to an Audi R8, claiming he had just bought it cash with the proceeds from forex trading. I was convinced and sent him another R1 million," he said.
