Controversies Surrounding Sandile Shezi

Like every other celebrity, Sandile Shezi has also been in the spotlight for few controversies. In 2015, he was indicted by some published articles of running a false organization and that he only produces plagiarized articles as courses for his institute.
Mike Schussler said that the entrepreneur was selling irrelevant articles to the public. He accused Shezi of just running a scheme to rob people of their money.

His partner, George Van Der Riet, was accused of being convicted on charges of manslaughter in the UK. Shezi replied that the allegations were not entirely true, admitting that Van Der Riet spent 2 years as a guest of her Majesty due to a fight he had with a man where the man sustained head injuries and died 3 days later in the hospital.

He has also responded to the allegation of selling plagiarized content to his students; Shezi claims that he has gone through his contents and has not found a single plagiarized sentence. He said there were no single correlations in the formats or the chapter headings. However, he admitted that some pictures might have been similar, which were only used to express an idea to his student. Anywhere you find a successful entrepreneur, there will always be an antagonist who will try everything possible to bring down the main character.

Shezi was involved in another scandal as married Minnie Dlamini was accused of being in a love entanglement with Sandile Shezi in 2015. Minnie has been accused of receiving expensive gifts from the millionaire trader, making her husband Quinton Jones feel uncomfortable. The rumor was, however, rubbished by both parties.

He was once asked during an interview if his parents supported his business; he replied by saying who wouldn’t support a rich son. He is breeding young talents in South Africa to believe in themselves and has proven that it is possible to become rich trading forex. Every parent would love a son doing what he does. On the other hand, Sandile Shezi has continued to keep his relationship affair a secret to the public; hence, we cannot tell if he is in a serious relationship or not.
