A former Gauteng policewoman has disputed claims that she hired hitmen to kill her family in order to benefit from life and funeral insurance policies.
Nomia Rosemary Ndlovu is accused of orchestrating the deaths of at least six relatives. She allegedly cashed in on more than R1 million.
Ndlovu is alleged to have plotted the murders of her cousin Witness Madala Homu in 2012, her sister Audrey Somisa Ndlovu in 2013 and her boyfriend Yingwani Maurice Mabasa in 2015.
Her niece Zanele Motha was killed in 2016, her nephew Mayeni Mashaba in 2017 and her nephew Brilliant Mashego in 2018.
Ndlovu has been appearing in the Palm Ridge Magistrate’s Court on a raft of charges including murder, fraud, and obstruction of justice.
Earlier this week, a video of Ndlovu telling two alleged hitmen about her plans to kill her sister went viral.
The men then informed the police of Ndlovu’s plans. A sting operation was set up and Ndlovu was arrested.
The two alleged hitmen, Njabulo Kunene and Lakhiwe Mkhize told the court how Ndlovu booked herself into a hospital and secured a day pass. The men claimed Ndlovu did this in order to get herself an alibi.
En route to Bushbuckridge, where her sister lived, Ndlovu stopped to get petrol which she told the men to use to set the house alight.
After laying out the plot, Ndlovu asked to get dropped off at a taxi rank so she could travel back to the hospital. She was arrested shortly thereafter.
Ndlovu on Tuesday denied all the allegations against her.
She said she would never plot the deaths of her sister, nieces and nephews. She added that she did not know why the men would give false testimony.
Ndlovu is expected to be cross-examined by the State on Wednesday.
