Kunene told the court:

"I agreed to the killing, but I do not live off blood money.”

Instead of following through on the hit, Kunene and his friend, Jabilani Mtshali, tipped off the police and Mudau's husband, and the woman was subsequently arrested, News24 reported.

Nomsa Mudau emulates Rosemary Ndlovu in plan to kill husband

Mudau's plan to kill her husband dates back to February 2018. The ex-cop planned to emulate her colleague at the time, Rosemary Ndlovu.

Ndlovu made millions by orchestrating hits of five of her family members and her boyfriend, then cashing in on insurance policies after they were killed.

According to Kunene, Mudau planned to follow suit and said she would pay the hitmen once she received about R3 million from an insurance policy on her husband.

Mudau and Ndlovu have been charged with conspiracy to commit murder but have pleaded not guilty to the charges.

The trial will resume on Tuesday, 18 April.
