Musician impersonator due in court
The man claiming to be KwaZulu-Natal maskandi musician, Khulekani Mseleku, will appear in court tomorrow on a charge of fraud.
The man, who arrived in Nquthu in KwaZulu-Natal last week claiming that he was living with zombies, was taken into custody following a recommendation by police that the case needed a criminal investigation.
“The arrest follows developments yesterday when the man made his first public appearance at Nquthu. Detectives conducting the enquiry were convinced that the matter required criminal investigation and a docket was registered at Dundee SAPS where the man is currently in custody pending the criminal investigation. Detectives have been questioning the man this morning and are conducting further investigation,” KwaZulu-Natal police spokesman Colonel Jay Naicker said.
Mseleku died in 2009 on his way to see a traditional healer. He was buried in a high-profile funeral in early 2010.
On Sunday the man called for the body to be exhumed to prove that he was Khumalo.
The man claimed that he was held captive in a cave and that the zombies had forced him to apply for an identity document in another name.
