Police to investigate alleged murder plot involving deputy ambassador to Sudan
Police will investigate an alleged murder plot involving South Africa’s deputy ambassador to Sudan, Zabantu Ngcobo. She and her partner allegedly hired the embassy driver and his accomplice to kill the intelligence officer who has damaging reports on the deputy ambassador.
The driver of the embassy and his accomplice, according to Daily Maverick, had to kill two women to prove they were capable of assassinating the intelligence officer.
The two young Sudanese women were murdered in Khartoum last year December in what police thought was a satanic ritual as their bodies were dismembered and dumped in separate plastic bags outside the city.
