JOHANNESBURG - The police constable accused of killing family members and plotting to kill others to claim insurance money will face additional charges.

Nomia Rosemary Ndlovu - who was initially kept at the Johannesburg Prison - was moved to the Kgosi Mampuru prison in Pretoria in 2018.

This followed the discovery that she was allegedly planning to kill the officer investigating her multiple cases, as well as the Tembisa South station commander, while inside prison.

The former cop, who was stationed at the Tembisa South Police Station in Ekurhuleni, is now facing 20 criminal charges.

Her mother and brother are also expected to testify in her defence on Thursday.

Even with Ndlovu charged with killing family members, her mother still refuses to believe that her she conspired to have her killed.

However, one of the alleged hitmen - Lakhiwe Mkhize – has testified that Ndlovu gave him money to murder her mother.

The case became news headlines this week when a video emerged of Ndlovu talking to an apparent hitman to organise more murders.

It’s understood she has been paid R1.4 million in insurance and the State said it had enough evidence to convict her of murder, attempted murder and fraud – among other charges.
