Gogo Dorah Radebe (84) was looking forward to being spoiled by her children on Women’s Day.
She decided not to cook that morning while waiting at her house in Mofolo, Soweto for her family to arrive.
But little did she know that she was waiting for a beating!
When her son (50) discovered his mum hadn’t prepared food for him, he allegedly beat her up with a piece of wood and her walking stick. When the gogo fell to the ground, he kicked her.
“He told me that I must get out of his father’s house for good. He forgets that he is my son and the house still belongs to me.”
Family members are very angry with the man, who ran off after beating up his mum.
Tshepo Radebe (36) said what has happened to his gogo was terrible.
“That guy has done a very bad thing and the worst thing is that he has done it to his mum,” said Tshepo.
“He is heartless and we hope police find him.”
Police spokesman Constable John Serala said: “A case of assault has been opened.
“Anyone with information leading to the arrest of the suspect should contact Moroka Police Station on 086 00 10111 or Serala at 071 675 65 47.
