Ex police officer Rosemary Ndlovu, accused of planning the murders of her partner and numerous members of her family in order to cash out on life insurance policies, has been found guilty. Six counts of murder, eight counts of attempted murder, and four counts of fraud were leveled against Ndlovu. Judge Ramarumo Monama issued his ruling at Johannesburg's Palm Ridge Magistrate's Court of the Gauteng High Court. According to Monama, the state's case has been proven beyond a reasonable doubt. He has flatly rejected Ndlovu's story. Ndlovu was found guilty on six counts of murder and multiple counts of fraud. In addition, she was found guilty of attempting to murder her mother. Judge Monama went on to say that now that Ndlovu has been found guilty, she faces life in prison.
During a sting operation, the undercover cop tricked her into giving instructions on how her sister should be murdered, and she was discreetly videotaped. Ndlovu has been suspected of murdering six people by poisoning them, setting fire to their homes, and arranging for hitmen to execute them since 2012. According to state documents, Nomia planned to poison her other sister Audrey's tea in order to murder her, but she did not die at the time.
"The accused swiftly removed and washed the cup she had used the previous day when attempting to poison the dead, thereby erasing any evidence that may have implicated her in the murder," the state stated. Nomia claimed R717,421 for her sister Audrey's death.
According to the doctors' findings, there were strangulation marks and blood around Audrey's neck, leading them to suspect foul play. "The dead had no knowledge of the insurance policies to pay her funeral expenses, as well as policies in her name for funeral cover, accidental death cover, or life cover," according to the state. During a live broadcast, the verdict was read aloud. The case had captivated South Africans for months, with many perplexed by Ndlovu's behavior during her court appearances.
