Man held for killing mother in Gauteng

Johannesburg - A 41-year-old man was arrested for allegedly stabbing his mother to death in Naturena, south of Johannesburg, Gauteng police said on Wednesday.

"The lady was found dead on Tuesday, we are not sure when she was killed," said Constable Sibongile Mnguni.

She said the man was arrested on Tuesday, and would appear in the Johannesburg Magistrate's Court on Thursday.

The Star reported on Wednesday, that according to residents of Naturena Extension 19, the man hit his mother on Saturday night, threw her out of the house and she had to sleep outside in her car.

Police were called and they warned him of his behaviour.

His mother was let back into the house.

On Tuesday, police were called again after his mother's colleague from the Life Flora Clinic, where she worked as a nurse, found the gate locked.

The same police officer who responded on Saturday, arrived on the scene with other officers.

He left for Mondeor police station to call the dog unit and later called that he had found the son near the Johannesburg prison. When asked where his mother was he said he had killed her.

Sad indeed in our country. How on earth can you kill your Mother? What has gone wrong? Is it because of drugs that have entered every home is SA? Are we saying, we have succumbed as a country?
