Papa Penny’s Ex Lerato Manaka Who Just Got Released From Prison Speaks Out

Published

Papa Penny’s former manager, Lerato Manaka, and fellow ex-cons have created a better life for themselves by venturing into acting.

The former prisoners, who were held at Joburg Female Prison, also known as Sun City, recently performed their first play about fraud in Sasolburg on Freedom Day.

They were led by Lerato, who was sentenced in 2017 to 12 years imprisonment for fraud.

She was accused of transferring money from Danone SA’s bank account to her husband, Thabang Manaka’s company in 2011 when she was a project manager.

Lerato also made headlines in 2017 after she approached DStv and asked them to stop airing Penny Penny’s popular reality show Papa Penny Ahee, claiming he owed her R200 000. However, she only served a little over two years instead of 12 years. “Four years were suspended from my sentence and I had to serve eight years,” Lerato told the publication.

“But I only served two years and six months. I’m serving the rest of my sentence outside until 2023.

“In 2019, President Cyril Ramaphosa remitted 24 months from our sentences.

So, that meant two years were taken from the eight-year sentence. Then I was going to be released in November of 2021, but we were released early because of Covid-19.”

Lerato is now helping former prisoners through her NPO, the Modiehi Mongale Foundation.

She told the People’s Paper she met all the people who’re in the foundation in prison and looked for them when she was released.

“They hadn’t found employment yet because of the obvious stigma around ex-convicts.

“We decided to go back to acting, which we all started in prison.”

She said they each told their stories. She said the plan was to take the dramas to big theatres.

Makhadzi Buys Car For Her Dancer

The relationship between singer Makhadzi and one of Mzansi’s most celebrated dancers, Limpopo Boy, is complex. We remember some time ago when Limpopo Boy dumped Makhadzi.

In February, it was reported that Limpopo Boy had dumped Makhadzi. “Working with her [Makhadzi] has been an amazing experience because I am learning a lot from her and I can say I got the courage to even start in music from her,” Skoropo said.

Limpopo Boy, real name Matome Thoka, has been dancing for Makhadzi – real name Ndivhuzannyi Ralivhona – for more than six years. He said he would still dance for her regardless of his solo career.

It seems like the two have mended their relationship becuase MzansiNdaba is reliably informed that Makhadzi bought Limpopo Boy a brand new VW car.

Twitter was not amused though and suggested there could be more going on behind the scenes for Makhadzi to do such.

In other news, Makhadzi is in love!!

At first, the Matorokisi hitmaker was alleged to be dating a man by the name of Zwivhuya Nelwamondo, but nothing was confirmed. Now we can safely say that the musician and dancer has made it official and she us not hiding from the public anymore.

Zwivhuya is a business man, a Chief Executive Officer at Lwams Africa. Her man is said to be very supportive and the two are more than just lovers, but business partners to as he is said to have been sponsoring a lot of her gigs under his company. He also reportedly never misses any of Makhadzi’s gigs. The two can’t keep their hands off each other and are said to always be together.

Recently, the couple was photographed all loved-up and enjoying some quality time together during a romantic and intimate picnic set-up.

ACTRESS and businesswoman Sophie Ndaba is venturing into radio.

She recently joined the newly revamped Radio BOP, where she will host a lifestyle show every Saturday.

Sophie saidshe has always wanted to pursue a career in radio, but the opportunity never presented itself.

“Whenever I was invited to shows, I always saw myself behind the mic. I was really excited when I was approached for a slot at the station.

“I guess it was all about timing and I cannot wait for everyone to listen to the show as they are going to love it,” she said.

Sophie said her show will uplift women.

“I believe knowledge is power, and the show is going to help a lot of people as it will focus on health, beauty and business.

“To be honest, I did not want to turn the show into another regular show which will bore people.

“So when you listen, you will hear it’s different and does not follow the same format as other radio shows,” she said.

She said that she wanted the show to be interactive and fun.

Sophie said she saw herself doing radio for a long time.

“Radio is a great form of communication and I believe with my expertise and knowledge, people have a lot to gain, which is why I said yes to this gig in the first place.

“If this opportunity ends anytime soon, I will definitely continue with radio and find other ways to make it work,” she said.

Sophie, who recently made her producing debut on SABC1’s drama series Family Secrets, said she enjoyed being behind the scenes.

“Being a producer on the show has been amazing and I’m making sure the story goes to another level, is told correctly and continues to do well.

“The new season is bigger, better and has a lot of cliffhangers which will leave people at the edge of their seats,” she said.
