She would even miss work for gambling, Mabunda said.
Taking us through the court case, Mabunda said throughout his interactions with Ndlovu, he had known her as a humble and calm person but was surprised when she flipped the script and became dramatic when the media started following her proceedings. Ndlovu was seen lashing out at the media and hurling food at them, which led to her being shackled and handcuffed.
With the case concluded, Mabunda said he found “she was very manipulative and denied the truth”.
He said he was satisfied with the sentences the killer received, adding this was not an easy case because circumstantial evidence was all he had to go on.
“I was happy because she will be gone for good and this will be a learning curve for those who may think of doing the same.”
After her sentencing, Ndlovu made a dramatic exit from the courtroom, telling witnesses she would spend this Christmas behind bars but would be back for them next year.
Mabunda said this was simply the “the last kick of a dying horse”.
Asked what his final message to Ndlovu would be, Mabunda chuckled: “She must relax where she is, show some remorse, reach out to the families and tell them what happened, and inform them how she did it, because I still believe there are hitmen she was using who killed people with her. She must take them out.”
