Entrepreneur and musician, Ntombezinhle Jiyane, who’s popularly known as DJ Zinhle has been robbed of R500 000.  

Sunday World alleges that Jiyane realised her money was being stolen by one of her trusted employees in July this year.  


The multi-award-winning DJ was allegedly robbed by one of her staff members who used an illegal bank transfer.  

The employee fraudulently accessed her bank account and stole the money from her account for a period of one year (from July 2020 to July 2021).    

Sunday World reported that Jiyane’s close friend recently revealed the devastating news to them.   

The source added that the trusted staff member knew Jiyane’s username and password to her bank account and began stealing her money last year while she was meeting her lawyers in Protea Glen, Soweto.  

It is alleged that the staffer whose name cannot be mentioned as yet acted surprised when she was confronted by the DJ.  

Jiyane had no choice but to open a case of theft and fraud against her at the Protea Glen Police Station.
