It turns out that the true surname of the flamboyant Mpumalanga businessman is Chabalala and not Sam Mshengu, up till now nobody really knows where he hails from besides what he told Aldrin Sampear of Power987 Radio Station.

However, he only made his problems worse by allegedly attempting to bribe an officer R40K to avoid arrest.

In the declaration, Brigadier Hangwani Muluadzi said that Chabalala appeared before the Witbank Magistrates ' Court on Monday on allegations of suspected corruption, possession of an unlicensed firearm and fraud in contravention of the Immigration Act.

He was arrested at a restaurant at Emalahleni's Highveld Mall on Friday after an alleged effort to pay home affairs officials R40,000 "to destroy reports of a South African identification document that he  fraudulently acquired," as explained by the Hawks.

Shortly afterwards, the unit of the Hawks ' Serious Commercial Crimes Investigation officers swooped over him and discovered an unlicensed firearm in his car, a green Mercedes-Benz, one of many luxury vehicles he owns.

On Monday, when his followers came in flashy cars to court help him, there was a fair bit of drama outside law court. On Friday, he will appear again in court to be applying for bail again.

The Department of Home Affairs had launched an inquiry into the status of Chabalala's citizenship,Reports suggest he is genuinely from Zimbabwe and may have acquired illegally his South African citizenship. But obviously the Hawks are still attempting to find out where he really comes from. His 2015 ID and the lady he claimed to be his mother said she had never heard of him or had ever met him in person. Apparently Bethal Hospital also had no record of his alleged birth.

(Sam Mshengu) However, Chabalala's lawyer informed the tabloids that the state had a "weak case" and was going to fight to demonstrate it beyond reasonable doubt.

Most South Africans had never heard of the (Sam Mshengu) millionaire until he became the face of a flashy supercar convoy traveling to this year's Durban July festival in Durban, where he got tongues wagging, boasting top-of - the-range vehicles, many antendees were wondering how his cash had been made. In that convoy, there were 10 of the 72 vehicles (Sam Mshengu) owned.

He claimed he was born in Makwarela, Venda, and in July he opened up on radio about his hard education and how he ultimately achieved it in the logistics business. His transport logistics firm, Sam Holdings Trading, was started in 2014 and used trucks from his previous boss to begin his business dealings.

“I got a contract even when I didn’t have a truck at the time. I took my boss’ trucks and registered them. I was getting a commission of R10 at the time. I worked for a long time and raised money to buy my own truck. I could make R300,000 a month with commission and salary at the time.”

As he explained, he continued to work and save cash until it reached R3 million, which he used the money to purchase three trucks and trailers of his own.

“Now I have 52 trucks running on the road with machines and plant hire. That’s how I made my money. I’ve never been involved in anything illegal. I do transport with Eskom, but I’m also venturing into mining now with my own mine. It’s all my mind and planning and the mercy of God,” (Sam Mshengu) Chabalala said.
