Nzuzo Njilo arrested again: Fresh fraud charges over R1.5 million truck scam
Njilo is back in the news but for all the wrong reasons. Per City Press, he’s been arrested for supposedly duping a victim in a truck sale, with the police nabbing him following an investigation that started early this year.
Njilo is set to face the music at the Durban Magistrates’ Court this Thursday. The police investigation kicked off back in January after the victim reported the fraud. It’s a serious situation, with police spokesperson Robert Netshiunda confirming the charges.
Here’s the lowdown: The victim saw this truck in Boksburg and made two payments, but guess what? No truck.
The police then discovered that the sale agreement had some fishy info, leading them to put Njilo and another suspect, Ntshangase, on their wanted list.
This isn’t Njilo’s first run-in with the law. Back in June, he had fraud charges against him dropped in Johannesburg. Those charges involved him allegedly conning business bigwigs Blaine Evans and James Stephens out of more than R900,000.
Nketsi reportedly one foot out of marriage
Faith Nketsi, a social media influencer and reality TV star, has had her marriage to Njilo play out quite publicly. They tied the knot in April 2022, but their bliss was short-lived due to Njilo’s legal entanglements.
This drama has even seeped into her reality show, Have Faith, where she’s been open about her trust issues with Njilo.
Despite putting on a brave face, Nketsi has shared her deep-seated doubts about her marriage, mainly due to her distrust of Njilo. She’s been candid on her show about her internal battle, trying to decide if she can move past these trust issues.
Recently, there were whispers that Njilo might have defrauded Nketsi right after their wedding. But Nketsi was quick to shut these rumors down on social media, making it clear she’s not about to air her dirty laundry in public.
