According to Netwerk24, the concern is the relationship of Aleita Swanepoel with a man named Hendrik Geritz, who committed suicide in March this year. It would seem that the successful financial business of Geritz, HGG Financial Group, was the sponsor of the kykNET series from Swanepoel, Tid met Aleit for six seasons 13 series each.
Heritz’s personal property, like his company, has since been sequestered and liquidated, and it is being thoroughly investigated because many who have invested in his company want to know where their money has gone. Netwerk24 says the amount is about 500 million rupees.
Rumor has it that The Aleit Group also has financial problems, and Netwerk24 claims that this information was provided to them by a trusted source. Hans Rosenschun, Swainpol’s business partner, told the news agency that he was shocked to read in the media about Swainpol’s and Heritz’s relationship, but declined to comment on whether The Aleit Group had financial problems.
Meanwhile, Tid met Aleit is said to be looking for a new sponsor for the popular kykNET series. In the series, Aleit always visited a famous South African celebrity to catch up and see what they do. It was always accompanied by a beautifully set table and some decadent treats – something that Swanepoel was synonymous with.
Swainpole’s great personality and caring heart left an unforgettable impression on many. Details of Swanepoel’s funeral have not yet been released, but the Aleit group will manage the arrangements and they will publish all necessary information in due course.
