A South African pastor, his wife and his cousin have been convicted of killing a young woman for a multi-million rand insurance payout.

The trio were found guilty in the Circuit High Court, sitting in George, on Thursday.

National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) regional spokesperson Eric Ntabazalila said the case would be back in court on 15 November for sentencing proceedings.

Hlompho Mohapi, 25, from Thembalethu, was killed in 2018.

Melisizwe Monqo, Siphosihle Pamba and Phumlani Qhusheka had faced 29 charges against them, including murder, conspiracy to commit murder, attempted murder, fraud, robbery with aggravating circumstances, kidnapping, defeating or obstructing the course of justice and house breaking.

Back in 2018, Mohapi was tricked by the trio over claims of a job interview, but no such job existed and she was then taken to Herold’s Bay where she was stabbed multiple times, according to the George Herald.

She was reportedly found with multiple stab wounds to the chest.

The publication reported that shortly before Mohapi was killed, two life insurance policies, one worth R3 million and the other worth R200 000, as well as a funeral policy worth R50 000, were taken out on her life.
