Arrested businessman Nzuzo Njilo’s alleged victims have opened up about how he defrauded them through his trucking company, Njilo’s Trucking.

Speaking to Zimoja, Mala Gwarule and Melfred Dube — who claim to have invested into Njilo’s company — said he breached the agreement that they had with him and his business partner and also refused to return their trucks.

Njilo is married to reality TV star and rapper Faith Nketsi. He is also the son of the former mayor of Msunduzi Municipality, Themba Njilo.

In Gwarule’s case, she revealed that she signed a contract with Luntu of Maxbu Projects in June 2020. The company is owned by Njilo’s friend and business partner Luntu Maxegwane.

“The agreement was that I lease my truck to him, and his company and he will pay me R90 000 at the beginning of every month for 15 days on a R6000 rate per day,” the 26-year-old woman claims.

However, she says she has not received a cent from Maxegwane.

Gwarule alleged that a few weeks after giving her truck to the businessman, she saw Njilo posting it on social media as his own. When she asked for her truck back, Maxegwane refused to cooperate.

“Luntu refused to give me my keys and I involved lawyers and sheriffs of the court,” she says.

In January 2021, a man named Phumlani called her and scammed her into sending him the vehicle documents. She eventually realised that he needed them in order to sell her truck to someone else.

After proving that she was the rightful owner, Gwarule eventually got her truck back. However, the wires were cut off, batteries were stolen and it had dents.

“As if that was not enough, my truck was stolen again and it is the Njilo brothers and their friends who did this,” she alleges.

Dube, who is also allegedly a victim, said that he invested R300 000 into Njilo’s company in 2020.

“I thought everything was legit. At first, he delivered what he had promised but I was shocked to learn that he had no trucks in his name, even though he showed me trucks,” he said. However, he eventually stopped paying him.


On Monday, KwaZulu-Natal (KZN) police confirmed that Njilo handed himself to the Port Shepstone Police Station and appeared in court.

A statement by KZN police spokesperson, Colonel Robert Netshiunda, revealed that Njilo would be joining his co-accused, Kwanda Ntshangase, on Friday, 28 April, for bail application.

Njilo and his accomplice reportedly masqueraded as salesmen who pretended to sell a truck in May 2021.

“The unsuspecting buyer allegedly went and physically viewed the truck at a dealership in Boksburg, Ekurhuleni, and later paid the two a substantial amount of money. The truck was never delivered,” read the statement.
