The Witbank Magistrate’s Court in Mpumalanga has granted R200 000 bail to Mpumalanga businessman, Sam Shabalala.

The 27-year-old is facing charges of fraud, corruption and possession of an unlicensed firearm and contravening of immigration act charges.

It is alleged that the owner of a truck company, Sam Holdings, obtained his South African ID fraudulently.

Shabalala is also accused of attempting to bribe a Home Affairs official.

Last week, the court heard that his real name is Sambulo Bruce Chabalala.

He became the talk of the town after going to the Durban July in a convoy of over 50 luxury vehicles. The case has been postponed to the 22nd of November.
