She paid 3,000 into a Capitec bank account – bank account exposes woman who ordered a hit on her husband

A woman from Gqeberha and her alleged accomplice, accused of plotting to murder her estranged husband, appeared briefly in the city’s high court on Monday for the commencement of their trial.

However, proceedings were delayed as senior state advocate Marius Stander stepped in for his unwell colleague, necessitating a postponement of the trial.

Anichaa Ntoto, 31, is facing charges of allegedly offering Lubabalo Maseti, 30, R3,000 to carry out the murder of her husband, Mcolisi Mguqulwa, who was fatally shot in his New Brighton residence on November 24, 2021.

Tragically, Mguqulwa’s friend, Mihlali Sigana, was also killed during the same incident.

The accused duo faces charges including conspiracy to commit murder, two counts of murder, and illegal possession of a firearm and ammunition.

It is alleged that Ntoto conspired to have her husband killed following their separation, which was marred by jealousy-fueled arguments.

The state asserts that in the weeks leading up to the murders, Ntoto and Maseti colluded to orchestrate the killings.

On the night of the incident, Maseti and an unidentified individual entered the property seeking Mguqulwa before fatally shooting him and Sigana, then fleeing the scene.

Evidence suggests that Ntoto and Maseti were in contact multiple times before and after the murders, with Ntoto allegedly transferring R3,000 to a Capitec bank account provided by Maseti following the killings.

Ntoto was arrested in February 2022 and released on bail, while Maseti has been in custody since his arrest in September 2022.

The trial is set to commence on Friday, shedding light on the tragic events that led to the loss of lives and the alleged conspiracy to commit the heinous crime.
