Showmax studies Ndlovu murders
African video-on-demand service Showmax has premiered a true crime documentary series about murderer Nomia Rosemary Ndlovu.
Rosemary’s Hitlist focuses on the former police officer who became a serial killer. It tells the true story of her crime spree, which shocked South Africa.
In 2021, Ndlovu was sentenced to six concurrent life sentences for murdering her live-in partner and five of her relatives. They were murdered for so-called ‘killsurance’ – funeral cover payouts worth more than R1.4m (US$77,000) to Ndlovu.
She was also sentenced to an additional 30 years: 10 years each for fraud, incitement to commit murder and the attempted murder of her mother, Maria Mushwana, her sister Joyce, and Joyce’s five children.
Rosemary’s Hitlist is produced for MultiChoice-owned Showmax by IdeaCandy and directed by Valen’tino Mathibela. Richard Gregory (Steinheist) served as a consulting director.
