“For now we cannot say much, but we can confirm that investigations into Ndwandwa include those of two other deceased people on whom she also took out life insurance.
“There's another one involving Dlamini's surviving last-born son. For now we are asking the community to help us find her so that she can help in our investigations. We will leave no stone unturned.”
Hlathi said Nonhlanhla, 30, confessed to the murder and revealed how she held her mother's legs while her boyfriend and her sister Mapume's boyfriend raped her.
Nonhlanhla, Mapume, 39, and Nonhlanhla's 36-year-old boyfriend have since been arrested and appeared in the Barberton magistrate's court. They have not been asked to plead and are expected to apply for bail next month.
Dlamini's other daughter, Bessie van der Merwe, said her “loving and forgiving” mother was killed like a dog.
Van der Merwe told Sowetan on the day her mother died, she tried to talk her out of going to her now arrested daughter's house in Extension 11 in Barberton.
Police are also looking for Moses Nkunzi Mosemba, 36, regarding the matter. Anyone with information should contact detective Lt-Col Senzo Dawie on 071-685-1364.
