Zinhle allegedly caught an employee stealing products worth R96 000 from her jewelry store. 
“The employee is accused of stealing items worth R96 000, was arrested on 12 January, and appeared at the Pretoria Magistrates Court. The complainant alleged that she employed (the suspect) at her store, then she started to become suspicious that the business wasn’t running well in terms of profit. 

"She then went with her friends to the store, and they bought some items. Later, she went back to the store and asked to see the money for the day, and she failed to produce. She gave her R200, then she confessed she took it. They also went to her place where they found the items from the store.”
This is the second time an employee allegedly steals from DJ Zinhle. In her reality show, The Unexpected, Zinhle revealed that she had been a victim of cyber fraud.

Sunday World at the time reported that Zinhle opened a case of fraud and theft against Phumzile Diko at the Protea Glen police station.

According to Sowetan Live she was granted bail of R5 000 at the Protea Glen magistrate's court.

The 33-year-old denied stealing from the DJ and Drum quoted her affidavit which read:

“About the charges against me, I was in charge of the affairs of the complainant which included dealing with her business account...At all the multiple times relevant to the charge sheet, I deny fraud complainants and all transactions that were performed by me were at the instructions of the complainant.”

“Monies were transferred by the complainant [DJ Zinhle] from her account to my account to perform the duties as per her instructions. I earn plus-minus R3,000 a week, depending on the number of events I have been invited to. Alternatively, the biggest amount I have ever earned was R3,000 in one week which was during the festive season, that is December of 2021. It is in the interest of justice that I be released on bail… my intentions are to plead not guilty.”

“The state's case is very weak against me. I have not yet had sight of the content of the docket. Furthermore, I have R3 000 should I be granted bail.”

On The Unexpected, Zinhle pointed out that from July 2020, till July 2021 R500 000 had been missing from her business accounts. The suspect allegedly had access to Zinhle's personal details.
