Reality star Khanyi Mbau and her Zimbabwean millionaire boyfriend Terrence Kudzai Mushonga might be on a Dubai baecation at the moment, but Mushonga recently made headlines for allegedly defrauding Johannesburg-based businessman James Aliyu.
The Nigerian-born businessman James Aliyu accused Mushonga of defrauding him of a substantial amount of R1.2 million in a vehicle scam.
Aliyu told police that he bought two cars from Mushonga and that Mbau’s boyfriends arranged for one of the vehicles to be hijacked and the other to be stolen in two separate incidents.
The Nigerian businessman alleges that Mushonga paid criminals to steal one car and hijack the other.
The Johannesburg-based businessman has since opened a case of fraud at the Roodepoort police station against the Zimbabwean businessman.
He also opened a case of hijacking at Honeydew police station against the hijackers.
A local publication reported that Mbau’s boyfriend sold a Mercedes for R720 000 and a Jaguar for R500 000 to Aliyu and introduced himself under a false name as Dick Lefa Nzula from South Africa.
Aliyu said he was informed by the Roodepoort traffic centre in May that the documents were fake.
The publication also reported that they have seen copies of Mushonga’s fake South African driver’s licence, smartcard ID, and vehicle papers.
Mushonga told a local publication that he has R20 million in his bank account and will not repay Aliyu because he gave him money from proceeds of crime.
He also told the publication that Aliyu is wanted by the FBI (Federal Bureau of Investigation) for scamming Americans millions of rands.
Siya Ooza who is a Home Affairs spokesperson did not want to comment on Mbau’s boyfriend’s dual-citizenship and identity.
It also seems that Khanyi’s boyfriend is sought by the Zimbabwean police over his alleged involvement in a fraud scandal. It appears that he has been eluding the Zimbabwean police for more than four years now after he allegedly duped a businessman out of $166 000 (R2.5-million).
