Remember serial killer Ananias Mathe? Check what people say about him and Rosemary Ndlovu

In African culture, surnames are a big deal and they connect according to clan names. Ndlovu and Mathe are also one. These are surnames of two serial killers Mzansi has ever seen; Ananias Mathe and Rosemary Ndlovu.

Annanias Mathe, sometimes spelled Ananias Mathe, was a notorious serial r*pist and armed robber from Mozambique who achieved further notoriety in 2006 by being the only person to have ever escaped from the maximum high-security C-Max Penitentiary in Pretoria, South Africa. When Ananias Mathe died in 2016, many said that the serial r*pist, robber, and murderer has taken to the grave the secret of how he managed to escape from the maximum-security prison in Pretoria, South Africa, in 2006.

Mathe, a Mozambican national, who had then been convicted of 64 charges, including rape, attempted rape, attempted murder, robbery and theft, became the only person to have ever escaped from the maximum high-security C-Max Penitentiary, a daring escape which gave him the name – “Houdini of C-Max”.

And then there's Rosemary, the recent alleged serial killer who took out insurance policies for her relatives and later murdered them so she could cash out. Rosemary got Mzansi talking when she displayed some acting skills in court...from posing for journalists to throwing them with food!

The striking resemblance between the two and their strategy of acting "crazy" in court has got Mzansi talking. Are the two related? Apparently they both originate from Mozambique. Who knows? Maybe they are family and criminality and madness run in their blood.
