The fraud case against controversial businessman Nzuzo Njilo has been postponed once again, with a new court date set for October 2023.
Here’s why Nzuzo Njilo fraud case was postponed
Nzuzo Njilo, the husband of reality TV star Faith Nketsi, made an appearance in the Port Shepstone Magistrate’s Court on Monday, 24 July 2023, where his case was deferred to a later date.
Njilo faces charges of alleged fraud, and he and his co-accused Kwanda Ntshangase have been implicated in the case.
Both individuals handed themselves over to the Port Shepstone Police Station in April 2023 following a request from the authorities to assist in locating them.
The nature of the case has required Njilo to travel between his home in Johannesburg, Gauteng, and KwaZulu-Natal for court appearances and legal proceedings.
Njilo, who is the son of the former Msunduzi Local Municipality mayor, Themba Njilo, was granted R30 000 bail. His co-accused, Kwanda Ntshangase, a mining consultant, paid R3 000 for conditional release.
Njilo’s lawyer, Ofentse Nkgwang, stated that legal representations were made for the withdrawal of the Johannesburg case, based on the merits of the case.
However, specific details of the representations were not disclosed to the public.
Following the postponement in the Port Shepstone Magistrate’s Court, Nzuzo Njilo is now expected to appear again on 9 October 2023.
