Joburg female cop who allegedly teamed up with her boyfriend to kill his wife and mother-in-law is off the hook. See what happened

The withdrawal of murder charges against Johannesburg-based Police Sgt. Nonhlanhla Ngubo has left many people puzzled.

The case, which involved Ngubo, her boyfriend Capt. William Manku, and Mozambican national David Khoza, has taken a surprising turn with the latest court ruling.

The trio was initially charged with two counts of murder following the tragic deaths of Manku’s wife and mother-in-law in May 2021.

They were also accused of conspiracy to commit murder, robbery, attempted murder, and obstructing justice.

However, in a surprising twist, the court decided to withdraw the charges against Sgt. Ngubo, while Manku remains in custody and Khoza forfeited his bail application.

Limpopo Provincial Police spokesperson Col. Malesela Ledwaba commented on the case, stating, “Capt. Manku remains in custody, while charges against his alleged girlfriend, Sgt. Ngubo, have been withdrawn by the court.”

The decision to drop the charges against Ngubo has sparked speculation and raised questions about the evidence and the prosecution’s case.

The arrests were made following the fatal shootings of Manku’s wife and mother-in-law near a communal tap, which also resulted in the injury of the deceased woman’s son.

The investigation led to the apprehension of the suspects in Mpumalanga and Gauteng, further complicating the case.

As Capt. Manku and Khoza await a bail hearing continuation on May 22, the outcome of the case remains uncertain.

The withdrawal of charges against Ngubo has added another layer of complexity to an already perplexing and tragic situation.
