Ladybrand man sent to jail for assaulting his mother



A 29-year-old man from Old Platberg in Ladybrand in the Eastern Free State has been sentenced to three years’ imprisonment for domestic violence.

Modise Nazo assaulted his 58-year-old mother this past Monday after demanding she give him keys to her RDP house.

When she refused, he assaulted her and threatened to burn her house down and kill her. The mother ran away and alerted her neighbours.

He appeared before the Ladybrand Magistrate’s Court yesterday where he was sentenced to direct imprisonment.
