Lebohang Ndlovu, a dangerous killer cop on the loose

The residents of France township in Pietermaritzburg are living in fear following the escape of 26-year-old Lebohang Ndlovu, a former police officer who was convicted of murder.

He escaped from police custody at the Pietermaritzburg High Court.

Ndlovu is a loan shark and ex-cop who has been convicted for three murders.

Lebohang Ndlovu managed to slip away while being loaded in a transport vehicle along with other prisoners on Thursday. He had previously served as a constable stationed at the Pietermaritzburg Police Station.

According to reports, Ndlovu fled past police and security personnel, running and disappearing into the streets.

Ndlovu was found guilty of the murders of Bonga Ngubane, Mthokozisi Khumalo, and Bheki Jojo on June 25, 2022, in Phase 5, Ambleton, France. His sentencing was scheduled for March 18.

The KwaZulu-Natal police spokesperson, Lieutenant Colonel Nqobile Gwala, confirmed that police in Pietermaritzburg are actively investigating the case of his escape from lawful custody.

“On June 25, 2022, Alexandra Road police received a complaint of a shooting and proceeded to Phase 5 in Ambleton. On arrival they found three males aged between 31 and 34 with gunshot wounds in the head. Two were confirmed dead at the scene and the third victim was taken to hospital where he succumbed to his injuries. The accused handed himself over to Alexandra Road police on June 25, 2022,” said Gwala.

Residentsbsaid Ndlovu was a well-known police officer and a loan shark.

“The news of his escape came as a great shock but it is something that we suspected from the outset. A lot of things that happened during the investigation were questionable. Even on the day of his conviction, he seemed really relaxed and not worried at all,” said a resident, who knew the victims.

The residents said they were scared Ndlovu would harm the witnesses or anyone else he saw at the court calling for him to be sentenced.

They added they were concerned because some of the witnesses had to flee from Pietermaritzburg before the trial in fear of their lives.
