Johannesburg - A KwaMakhutha nurse was arrested after she was implicated in the murder of her husband, said KwaZulu-Natal police on Saturday.

The woman, 44, was arrested on Friday. Her husband was killed in December 2011 in what appeared to be a break-in and robbery, said Colonel Vincent Mdunge.

"Three armed men entered his residence and robbed him of R70 000 stokvel money. The suspects took him and his Toyota Yaris to Obivane River where they shot him dead," said Mdunge.

The abandoned vehicle was found and investigations led to the arrest of two men in February 2012.

Shortly after the arrests, a woman, 28, approached the investigating officer and claimed that the third man linked to the murder was her brother.

She allegedly offered the officer R30 000 to steal the docket.

The woman and her brother were arrested.

Police later learned that the dead man's wife was allegedly behind his killing.

"She hired three hit men to do the job for her and gave them an instruction to make it look like a house robbery and take the stokvel money," said Mdunge.

The woman was expected to appear in court soon.

      Mark its group savings and usually as a group you share it at the end of the year. As africans we doing this a lot and is always controversy. I know you gonna ask yourself why can't a person open his savings/investment account? The answer we simply not discipline enough when it comes to finances, myself included. Hope you have a clue now Mark

    @ mark , as far as I've heard it's a savings scheme were a group of people all put bucs in and every year a different person is chosen and receives a lump sum of cash .

    For the stokfel to be safe, money should never be delivered like post to the receiver. Tranfering it to his bank would be safe. I just like carrying cards only without cash as money at hand is unpredictable.

    @Mark, stokvel is a saving scheme that one commits themselves to saving a certain amount of money through out the year with a group of other individuals. The total amount is than divided at the beginning of December. So the R70000 was not for an individual but for the members of the stokvel.

    Tigza, you are a moron & your explanation is symbolic of how apartheid crippled your mind. You need to be liberated. Stokvel is not about discipline but about social cohesion & Ubuntu which is deep rooted in African people. Speak for yourself on discipline as this is not at the of why people join stokvels. Your narration is that of a crazy person & I think you are.
