Faith Nketsi's husband, Nzuzo Njilo remanded in custody after handing himself to police

Controversial businessman Nzuzo Njilo has been arrested again for another fraud case in Durban after a truck sale deal went wrong.

Njilo spent a week in police custody after his arrest shortly after an appearance at the Port Shepstone magistrate’s court last week.

He is charged for a business fraud amounting to R1.5-million, which was allegedly committed between January and June this year.

Police spokesperson Colonel Robert Netshiunda said Njilo is expected to appear at the Durban magistrate’s court on Thursday.

“Durban Central police have arrested a 27-year-old man in connection with a case of fraud which reportedly occurred at business premises between 30 January 2023 and 20 July 2023,” said Netshiunda.

“It is alleged that a man purchased a product from a suspect and was not satisfied with the quality of the product.

“Reports indicate that the victim was promised another product but it was not delivered.”

Another botched truck sale

Njilo was arrested shortly after his appearance for another matter where he is accused of allegedly defrauding another business person in similar circumstances.

Njilo and his co-accused, Kwanda Ntshangase, appeared before the Port Shepstone magistrate’s court on Wednesday last week and the matter was postponed to November 22 because their legal representatives failed to arrive in court.

The controversial businessman and his accomplice are accused of allegedly defrauding a woman of R500 000 in a botched truck sale in 2022.

The duo allegedly defrauded the woman by selling her a truck in 2021 but failed to deliver the vehicle. They each face a charge of fraud linked to the dodgy sale.

In May, Njilo made headlines after police posted his picture on social media as a wanted man accused of defrauding a unsuspecting buyer during the sale.

Njilo and Ntshangase handed themselves over to police and were held in police custody before receiving bail of R30 000 and R3 000, respectively.
