It is alleged that Mokoena and Ndlovu staged what was meant to look like a hit and run accident. The incident occurred on July 13, 2017.

Their plan was derailed when Ndlovu, who was using Mokoena’s car, ran Dlamini over with the car, lost control and got stuck on the side of the road.

Ndlovu is said to have fled the scene on foot, but was later arrested and made few appearances at the Nkomazi Magistrate’s Court, in which he was denied bail and is still behind bars. He is expected to appear before the same court on March 5, 2018.

Further investigations revealed that Mokoena allegedly orchestrated the plan to have her husband murdered, which led to her arrest.

She briefly appeared before the Nkomazi Magistrate’s Court, and was subsequently remanded in custody for formal bail application. She was dismissed in November last year.
