The paper reports that according to James Aliyu, he bought two cars from Terrence Mushonga, one of which has since been hijacked while the other had been stolen on two separate occasions by criminals whom he believes work for Mushonga.
The publication reports that James Aliyu has since opened a case of fraud at Roodepoort police station against Mushonga and another one of hijacking at Honeydew police station against the hijackers.
In a police statement seen by the Sunday paper, James Aliyu said Terrence Mushonga, who is reportedly a fugitive from Zimbabwe, approached him and introduced himself as Dick Lefa Nzula from South Africa and sold him a Merc for R720 000 and the Jaguar for R500 000.

James Aliyu said Terrence Mushonga gave him copies of his South African drivers’ licence, smartcard ID, and vehicle papers, which Sunday World has seen, for the change of ownership and registration of the cars to his name.
James Aliyu told the publication that he went to Roodepoort traffic centre on May 25 where he was told the documents were phony.
Speaking to the paper from Dubai via a video call, Terrence Mushonga, who did not want to explain why he was using two different names, said he had R20-million in his bank account but would not repay James Aliyu because the money Aliyu gave him was proceeds of crime.
“That man is wanted by the FBI for scamming Americans millions of rand,” said Terrence Mushonga.
Home Affairs spokesperson Siya Qoza refused to shed light on Mushonga’s mysterious South African citizenship and identity.
