TimesLIVE reported last year how Ntuli, who was arrested by the task team investigating political killings in the province, was found guilty of the 2016 murder of ANC councillor Thami Nyembe, who was gunned down in Nongoma. Nyembe’s wife sustained serious injuries during the shooting but survived.
According to the charge sheet, Ntuli’s reign of terror in Nongoma began in April 2015, when he murdered Bhutiza Mahlobo.
The next year he gunned down Nyembe. His wife, Nolwazi Mngomezulu, was shot and critically injured but survived.
Next Ntuli killed three brothers who were willing to testify as witnesses in the murder of Nyembe. Brothers Sibusiso Phiwayinkosi, Mcebisi and Sibusiso Elvis Zulu were killed by Ntuli in January 2017.
His last hit before his arrest was Spamandla Zungu, who Ntuli murdered in August 2018.
According to national police spokesperson Brig Vishnu Naidoo, Ntuli is among the accused in the Meyiwa murder case.
“He is charged separately in the matter of Senzo Meyiwa. He is accused number five in that matter.”
