Rosemary Ndlovu’s story has been circulating on the internet for a while, and many of you are wondering who she is and what she did.
This is a detailed profile and report of Rosemary Ndlovu, a former police officer who allegedly insured her family and then killed them.
Who Is Rosemary Ndlovu?
Rosemary Ndlovu is a former police officer who has been accused of orchestrating five family members’ deaths in order to maximize her insurance payout.
The age of Sergeant Rosemary Ndlovu is between 43 and 46 years old.
The Story So Far
The former cop planned the murder of her lover, mother, two sisters, five nephews and nieces.
Rosemary insured her sister Audrey with different insurance companies.
On Tuesday morning, 25th June 2013, Rosemary intentionally served Audrey a tea laced with a harmful substance and left.
She returned in the afternoon to Audrey’s house to determine if she was still alive, strangled her, and fled.
A decomposing body of the woman was found much later.
Rosemary received more than R700,000 from insurance claims as her sister’s beneficiary.
Audrey’s son, Brilliant Mashego, confronted Ndlovu years later upon discovering that she had taken his mother’s insurance money.
Therefore, Ndlovu organized his elimination because he demanded the money. Mashego’s body was found on the streets with head injuries.
The woman also eliminated her boyfriend, Yingwani Maurice Mabasa.

Mabasa was attacked on Tuesday, 14th October 2015, and his body was retrieved near the Olifantsfontein Police Station.
