Following his arrest over the weekend, it’s been confirmed that the police will hold on to DJ Zinhle’s boyfriend, Brendon Naidoo for the next few days.
Police spokesman Lieutenant Kay Makhubela confirmed that the hunky businessman and boyfriend to the popular DJ has been in police custody since he was arrested.
“I can confirm that he appeared in court on Monday and has been remanded in custody. He will remain in custody until next week,” he said.
Apparently, he was remanded in custody after appearing in Alexandra Magistrate court on Monday morning according to our previous report on the matter.
The magistrate must have decided to keep Brendon in prison until his next court appearance which is on Tuesday, April 18. This would allow the court to gather all the necessary evidence needed.
Just like her son, Brendon’s mother Ramela Reddy refused to comment on the matter, saying that the family lawyer is in a better position to speak on their behalf.
Nonetheless, the lawyer said they can only comment when they have enough facts at hand. Also, Drum reported that Zinhle had tried to visit her boyfriend after his arrest on Saturday night. However, she could not be allowed to see him due ton the strict visiting hours applied to him.
Brendon Naidoo was arrested on Saturday afternoon on charges of fraud after many people accused him of swindling them.
The self-proclaimed businessman allegedly scammed his accusers of as much as R15-million. He apparently convinced them to allow him to invest their cash in forex trade to make profits.

However, when it was time to withdraw the supposed profits from the deal, he started telling stories. One of the accusers, Rustenburg businessman Thapelo Tshepe said he transferred about R3-million into Naidoo’s bank account in 2014. He alleged that Naidoo persuaded him to do so in order to make profits.
In order words, Brendon has been doing this for a while. As a result, he will be facing fraud charges in court.
