Brothers charged for killing their father

2016-05-06 06:00

TWO brothers aged 17 and 36 have been charged for allegedly killing their father, Mongezi Nondabula (51), at Mpifane village in Matatiele on 24 April. It is alleged that the deceased didn’t obey last year’s court order of not visiting the family. Instead he visited his wife in the night on 24 April and started beating his wife with a stick.

The two brothers woke up from the other room after they heard sounds of their mother screaming for help.

“While defending their mother the two brothers beat their father until he collapsed,” said police spokesperson Lieutenant Raphael Motloung. Nondabula died on his way to Nelson Mandela Academic Hospital in Mthatha. His wife was also treated for wounds to the head.

Motloung said the brothers were arrested and charged for murder.
“The first suspect is in custody but the second suspect is still a minor and he is in the hands of social workers.”

Both suspects will appear in the Matatiele Magistrate Court next week Wednesday.
