Nomia Ndlovu, a multi-murder suspect, told the Johannesburg High Court that she would not have transported her niece Zanele Motha to the hospital in the middle of the night if she truly wanted her to die. On Tuesday, the former cop's cross-examination is set to continue.
Motha died in 2016 after being released from the Tembisa Hospital into Ndlovu's care, and doubts have been raised about the injuries that caused her death, which did not match the testimony of medical workers who initially treated her. Ndlovu was questioned about why she did not give any of the money left over from Motha's insurance payout to her niece's three young children. It was because she didn't get along with their father, she explained.
After providing R60,000 to Motha's funeral, Ndlovu is reported to have pocketed a significant portion of an R100,000 insurance payout. She also claimed that she drove Motha to a different hospital the night she died because she wanted her to receive better care, not because she wanted her to die.
TAMPERING WITH EVIDENCE
Ndlovu claimed in court that she was too delirious to have tampered with evidence at her deceased sister's home on the day her body was discovered.
Audrey Ndlovu, who was found dead a day after her sister arrived to see her in June 2013, was poisoned and then strangled by the former cop. She claimed she was crying and had accidentally bumped the cups she had used the day before with Audrey, so she decided to throw them in a pail of water outside.
Riana Williams, a state prosecutor, feels Ndlovu had a nefarious agenda. “In your version, you took those cups from the crime scene and put them in a bucket of water. Why? The prosecution remarked, "Ma'am, you tampered with evidence."
