Convicted fraudster Thandi Maqubela (52) could benefit from the multimillion-rand estate of her late husband‚ acting Judge Patrick Maqubela, following the Supreme Court of Appeal’s overturning of her murder conviction. And she may be home by Christmas because she is eligible for parole, says a TimesLIVE report. Maqubela's lawyer Jolinda Vreugde Slager‚ from Lamprecht Attorneys‚ said she was now a normal heir to the intestate deceased estate. ‘The process of administration of the estate might still take a while‚ depending on the Master's directives and objections thereto‚’ she added.
