A former policewoman has been convicted on six charges of murder for allegedly murdering her family members for insurance claims with the assistance of hitmen. Rosemary Ndlovu was found guilty of the deaths of her sister Audrey, Audrey's son Brilliant Mashego, her live-in boyfriend Yingwani Maurice Mabasa, cousin Witness Madaka Homu, niece Zanele Motha, and another relative Mayeni Mashaba by Judge Ramarumo Monama after years of maintaining her innocence.
Rosemary was also found guilty of thwarting the course of justice by messing with the crime scene where Audrey died. Ndlovu was also found guilty on four counts of defrauding Clientelle Limited, 1 Life Insurance, Old Mutual, and Assupol by Monama. He also found her guilty of conspiracy to commit murder in connection with the attempted murder of her sister Nomasonto, as well as seven counts of instigation to commit murder and the attempted death of her mother, Maria Mushwana. In court, it was discovered that Ndlovu received more than R1.4 million in insurance benefits for her deceased family.
She was arrested and charged with six charges of murder, four acts of fraud, obstruction of justice, and eight counts of conspiracy to commit murder. She worked at the Tembisa police station at the time of her arrest. Audrey, Ndlovu's sister, was strangled to death, and she earned a R700,000 insurance claim. When Audrey's son, Mashego, discovered that Ndlovu had received money from insurance firms following her mother's death, he confronted her and was brutally murdered.
During the trial, the prosecutor presented evidence that Ndlovu had indicated that she had been in frequent communication with the hitmen, Lakhiwe Mkhize and Njabulo Kunene. She was also found guilty of attempting to murder her mother. Ndlovu now faces life in prison, according to Judge Monama, after being found guilty.
