Terry Pheto A Laughing Stock After Mzansi Unearth lotto jackpot tweets

Terry Pheto A Laughing Stock After Mzansi Unearth lotto jackpot tweets

The award-winning actress Terry Pheto made jokes about winning the lottery and “disappearing” on Twitter when she won, according to old tweets uncovered by Mzansi social media investigators.

Twitter users wasted little time in making fun of the actress’s humorous comments from as far back as 2010.

The “Tsotsi” actress, however, found this a little embarrassing because she had been implicated in the theft of National Lottery Commission (NLC) grant money.

Pheto is accused of using money taken from the struggling NLC to buy land in Bryanston where she afterwards constructed a luxurious home for herself.

In one of her old tweets, Pheto joked about wanting Lotto numbers from charismatic pastor and self-proclaimed prophet Paseka Motsoeneng, popularly known as Prophet Mboro.

In another tweet, posted in 2021, she joked about disappearing on Twitter if she were to win the jackpot.

“If you don’t see me on Twitter anymore, just know that I’ve won the Powerball jackpot,” she wrote in Setswana.

The tweet garnered over a thousand retweets and more than 230 comments.

Some Twitter users advised her to deactivate her account to avoid being dragged any further.

Pheto did not respond to any of the tweets and hasn’t posted anything on her verified account since October 30, 2022.

On Thursday, the Special Investigating Unit (SIU) placed her three-storey house under the hammer, but there was no successful offer made at the auction.

According to the SIU, the funds used to purchase Pheto’s house came from non-profit organisations that received NLC funding meant for the roll-out of a public campaign and culturally sensitive medical intervention projects aimed at achieving the traditional circumcision practice.

The actress’s three-storey home has three bedrooms, two bathrooms, a kitchen, a large open-plan dining room with a family room, a lounge, a large rooftop garden with an entertainment area, and a double garage, complete with staff quarters.

The Bryanston property is reported to be worth around R5 million. However, on Thursday no bid over the starting bid of R3m was made among the 28 registered bidders.
