A woman has appeared in court for allegedly ordering a hit on her husband.
KwaZulu-Natal police spokesperson Colonel Thembeka Mbhele said Thokozile Mhlongo appeared in the Ntuzuma Magistrates’ Court on a charge of murder on Monday.
The 46-year-old woman allegedly hired a middleman, 28-year-old Zamani Gasa, who has also been charged with murder.
51-year-old Wiseman Mhlongo was shot dead on October 16 at his Newlands Heights house in KwaMushu.
His body had multiple gunshot wounds.
Mhlongo’s wife and the so-called middleman were arrested on Friday.
The hitman remains at large.
