The alleged fraudster has had to travel between his home in Johannesburg in Gauteng and KwaZulu-Natal for his fraud case. He handed himself over to the Port Shepstone Police Station in April after the police requested help in locating him and his co-accused Kwanda Ntshangase.

The 29-year-old, who is the son of the former Msunduzi Local Municipality mayor, Themba Njilo, is out on R30 000 bail while his mining consultant co-accused was granted R3 000 bail.

Njilo had another fraud case going on in Johannesburg, but it was withdrawn last month at the Randburg Magistrates’ Court.  

At the time, his lawyer Ofentse Nkgwang said:

We did legal representations for the withdrawal of the case based on the merits of the case. The representations were considered and successful. I, unfortunately, can’t disclose the contents of the legal representations.

However, Nkgwang said he was not aware how the Port Shepstone case was going as Njilo was represented by another legal team in that case. Njilo will be back at the Port Shepstone Magistrates’ Court October 9.
