Khanyi Mbau is dating again and it looks as if her new man might be a bit of a bad boy! 

It’s never easy to move on from a long term relationship, but after ending a romance of over 10 years with her previous partner, it looks like Khanyi Mbau has found love again – in the arms of Zimbabwean businessman Kudzai Mushonga. However, the plot is only beginning to unravel because media reports have linked the entrepreneur with a criminal past, claiming he is still wanted in other African countries! 

Trouble in paradise already?

It’s one thing to be dating someone new and then spot red flags. It’s another thing entirely to be dating someone new and have the whole country talking about your partner’s criminal past! That’s exactly what’s happening to Khanyi Mbau who has had to read some rather unflattering comments about her new bae this week. 

The Mbau Reloaded reality TV star has been teasing her new love affair with the monied up Zim businessman, Kudzai Mushonga and the two even shared some steamy snaps showing off their luxury sports cars. Just when we thought that Khanyi had finally found her rightful match in life, things took a turn for the worst. 

Media reports have been dominated by allegations that Kudzai is wanted by the police of Zimbabwe. He is alleged to be part of an infamous “Rich Gang” which is notorious for “partying in South Africa at night and flying back to Harare in the early hours of the morning via private jet.

All4Women spoke to a Zimbabwean journalist who asked to remain anonymous but added, “Nobody knows the source of those guys’ wealth, but you just know it is not all clean. It’s just that they have connections in high places and can get away with whatever they want. Even [the late] Ginimbi, everyone who is not his friend was highly suspicious”.

Is Kudzai still wanted?

According to Tshisa Live, Kudzai is currently wanted by Zimbabwean police following a crime in 2017 where both he and his friends were implicated. The paper reports that they siphoned nearly R2.4 million from a microfinance company and cooked the books to make it look like they owned an airline. 

The group was arrested for their part in the crime before being released on bail. According to Tshisa Live, a warrant of arrest is still out for the controversial man. 


Do you think that Khanyi should be in any way concerned about his potential criminal status?
