The businessmen opened a case of fraud against Njilo – the husband of socialite and reality TV star, Faith Nketsi – for an outstanding debt of approximately R1 million. The pair allegedly paid him for copper concentrate, which he never delivered in August last year. Instead, when Njilo promised to return the money, he allegedly faked the proof of payment and they later learned through the bank that he had only returned R9.

Speaking to Sunday World, Bazuka Mhango, who is the lawyer representing Lund Industries, said that the NPA did not communicate the decision to them.

“I was informed by my client who read in the papers that the charges have been dropped. My instructions are that we need to inquire reasons as to why the charges were dropped.

“My client has been affected by the crime that has been committed so we are looking for information and then we will take a decision from there. Right now we have not decided on what direction to take. We will be writing to the NPA, they have to give us the reason for dropping the charges.”

Njilo – who is the son of the former mayor of Msunduzi Municipality, Themba Njilo – is not entirely off the hook as he is expected to appear at the Port Shepstone Magistrate’s Court on 20 June with his business partner, Kwanda Ntshangase.

According to a statement by KZN police spokesperson, Colonel Robert Netshiunda, 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.

In April, Njilo was granted R30 000, while Ntshangase, received R3 000 bail.

According to a police official close to the investigation, they have a water-tight case against the accused.

“Hence the accused also have to report to their local police stations when they wish to leave the province, as part of their bail conditions,” the source told Zimoja.

The bail condition for both the accused was to report to their nearest police stations twice a week and not leave the country or be found on the wrong side of the law.
