Faith Nketsi’s Husband Nzuzo Njilo To Hand Himself To The Police For Fraud
Nzuzo Nkuthalo Njilo, the son of former Pietermaritzburg mayor Themba Njilo and husband of media personality Faith Nketsi, is expected to surrender to Durban police on Monday following a search warrant issued by the Port Shepstone Magistrate’s Court.
Arrest warrant issued for Nzuzo Njilo over alleged fraud case
Njilo is wanted by the police in connection with a fraud case dating back to May 2021. He and his co-accused, Kwanda Ntshangase, are accused of defrauding two businesswomen of R240,000 by pretending to be salespeople at a truck business in Boksburg, Johannesburg.
Fraudulent information discovered on a truck sale agreement
According to the police, the two scammers signed an agreement and received two payments, but failed to deliver the truck. Njilo allegedly closed his account in August and disappeared. Upon investigation, the police discovered fraudulent information on the truck sale agreement and initiated a criminal prosecution as a result.
Lawyer decries unnecessary police hunt for Nzuzo Njilo
Njilo’s lawyer, Lucky Nhlabathi of LM Nhlabathi Incorporated, has criticized the police’s search warrant as an “unnecessary public stunt.” He believes that the police’s actions were excessive, given that Njilo is the son of an ex-mayor and that they had already made arrangements for him to be taken to Durban from Johannesburg on Monday.
“There was no need, it’s just inflating intimidation and fear. We are of the view that the situation does not warrant the publicity stunt,” he told the Sunday Tribune.
