Khanyi Mbau Speaks Directly On Bae Kudzai Mushonga’s “Criminal Past”
South African actress and media personality Khanyi Mbau has finally spoken out about her Zimbabwean boyfriend Kudzai Mushonga’s alleged criminal past.
Kudzai is reportedly on the Zimbabwean police wanted list and is a fugitive from justice after allegedly defrauding a microfinance company of US$166,000 (R2.4m) back in 2016.
Up till now, both Khanyi Mbau and Kudzai Mushonga have never directly addressed the allegations.
However, on the first episode of Netflix’s new reality show “Young, Famous & African”, which premiered on Friday, Khanyi made it clear that she does not care that Kudzai may be a criminal fugitive.
The star of Showmax’s hit drama “The Wife” called herself a “Gangster Girl” and said she seems to attract men with shady pasts. She highlighted that her baby daddy, Mandla Mthembu, was also alleged to have done some underhand shady deals to become wealthy.
In a show of unconditional love, Khanyi emphasized that she literally does not care if the Zimbabwean businessman is a criminal or fugitive from justice.
“Is Kudzai a bad boy? Yes. He got a crazy life, alleged (sic) stole money.
“I don’t know why I seem to attract them. My baby daddy also had a scandal about how he got his money. So, I don’t know; maybe I am a gangster chick.
“So if he is one, I literally don’t care.”
On the same episode of “Young, Famous & African”, Kudzai did not explicitly confirm or deny the allegations. He only insisted that the story came out because some people were targetting him.
“People were writing fugitive this, wanted this. But the person who wrote that story they were just targetting me because I am newsworthy,” said Kudzai.
Kudzai was placed on the wanted list by the Zimbabwe Republic Police on June 13, 2017, when he was just 25 years old. He was joined on the wanted list by his friends and alleged accomplices Tatenda Mandimutsira of Dzivarasekwa 2 in Harare and Njabulo Ndebele of Brook Village in Borrowdale.
The trio allegedly defrauded a microfinance company of US$166,000 (R2.4m) after misrepresenting that they owned an airline, Dream Air Company. The three allegedly cooked bank statements and papers to secure a loan for the non-existent airline.
They were arrested after the microfinancier carried out a thorough background check when they applied for a second loan.
However, after they were granted bail at the court, the three skipped the country and are yet to be apprehended since 2017.
According to police sources, the warrant is still active, and there’s a notice that anyone with information should report to the police national complaints desk about the trio’s whereabouts.
