JOHANNESBURG - During pre-sentencing proceedings at Johannesburg High Court Nomia Ndlovu, a police officer who is convicted of multiple murders, asked the families of her victims for forgiveness.
46-year-old Ndlovu maintained that she is innocent, despite evidence that she is guilty. Ndlovu has been convicted for murdering six of her relatives, as well as for fraud totalling R1.4 million.
EWN reports that 72-year-old Maria Mushwana, whose grandson, Brilliant, was murdered by Ndlovu, broke down in tears during the pre-sentencing proceedings earlier today.
Families of Ndlovu's victims speak out
According to SABC News, Ndlovu's motive for murdering her six family members was to take the money from their life insurance policies, which cashed out after their death certificates were issued. She is possibly facing a life sentence.

The families of Ndlovu's victims say that she does not seem to be sorry for what she did and that she deserves a severe sentence for the murders and fraud she committed. These family members have become secondary victims due to the trauma and hurt they have experienced following the murders.
“While she was in court you could by the look of her eyes that she is evil, no remorse at all. There is nothing that is more important than a family,… my brother is very important so if you don’t care about your family so what about the society, no mercy, harsh sentence,” one secondary victim said.
Reactions to the Nomia Ndlovu case
South Africans are shocked by this case, a feeling they expressed on Twitter. Many people agree with the victims' families that she deserves harsh sentencing.
"For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs. 1Timoth 6: 10 (NIV)."
"Six life terms # Ziyakhala"
"A Movie should be Made out of This. I wonder who'll get her Role....."
