The murder trial of former police officer Nomia Ndlovu will continue at the High Court in Johannesburg on Thursday.

Ndlovu is accused of killing her boyfriend and five of her family members in order to fraudulently benefit from insurance claims amounting to over R1.4-million.

She was arrested in 2018, after an alleged hitman turned to the police, informing them that Ndlovu had recruited him to commit a murder.

The police set up a sting operation which ultimately led to Ndlovu being caught on camera while allegedly detailing what she wanted done.

During her last court appearance, the state said it has proof of telephonic communication between Ndlovu and two alleged hitmen.

State prosecutor Rianna Williams told the court that she is in possession of cellphone records which prove that Ndlovu made multiple calls to two alleged hitmen, one of whom was an undercover police officer.

Williams stated that the calls had been made just a few weeks prior to Ndlovu’s arrest in Bushbuckridge, Mpumalanga.

However, Ndlovu maintained her innocence, saying that she also never spoke to the second alleged hitman, Lucky Mkhize, despite numerous phone calls.
