A woman accused of plotting the murders of at least five relatives to cash out on insurance policies has been slapped with additional charges.
Nomia Rosemary Ndlovu, who was stationed at the Tembisa South SAPS, now faces 20 criminal charges.
Ndlovu is accused of hiring hiring hitmen to kill her relatives.
She was arrested after she allegedly took three men, one being an undercover policeman, to point out her sister’s house in Bushbuckridge, so they could burn the woman’s house.
Ndlovu’s plan was caught on video and has since gone viral.
In the recording, she is heard plotting her sister and her nieces and nephew’s deaths. She told the men to make sure there were no witnesses left behind.
Ndlovu maintains innocence
On Thursday, it emerged that Ndlovu also allegedly planned to have the investigating officer and Tembisa SAPS station commander in her case killed.
Ndlovu has meanwhile maintained her innocence. Her elderly mother Maria Mushwana on Thursday said her daughter would never have arranged to kill her.
Previously, alleged hitman Lakhiwe Mkhize claimed that Ndlovu paid him to kill Mushwana. However, when he arrived at her house he could not carry out the crime.
He alleged that he asked Mushwana for water and left, however, Mushwana denied ever seeing Mkhize.
The matter was postponed on Thursday after Ndlovu said she was unwell. She is due to appear in court again on Friday.
She wept in court when she was asked about her lover, Yingwani Maurice Mabasa, who was one of the six people she allegedly had killed.
He was found stabbed multiple times in a field near the Olifantsfontein police station in 2015.
Ndlovu is alleged to have plotted the murders of her cousin Witness Madala Homu in 2012 and her sister Audrey Somisa Ndlovu in 2013.
Her niece Zanele Motha was killed in 2016, her nephew Mayeni Mashaba in 2017, and her nephew Brilliant Mashego in 2018.
