Judgment in the trial of fraud and murder accused Nomia Ndlovu has been reserved. The High Court sitting inpalm Ridge resumed proceedings on Thursday morning for final arguments.

The court heard closing arguments from both the State and defense, with prosecutor Riana Williams stating that there was enough evidence before the court for it to find Ndlovu guilty.

“The court cannot just turn a blind eye to a mountain of evidence. On its own, it might be the lightest feather, but a ton of feathers is still a ton of feathers and it may provide sufficient way for this court to convict the accused.”

The former Tembisa police officer is accused of ordering hits and plotting the murder of relatives, including her mother and sister so that she could cash out on several insurance policies.

Nomia Ndlovu has denied any involvement in the deaths of her five relatives and lover between 2012 and 2018. She also denied that she was plotting to murder her sister and her five children when she was arrested.

It has been alleged that Ndlovu pocketed nearly R1.4 million from the insurance claims. Judgment is expected to be handed down next week Friday.
