Johannesburg - A Limpopo woman and her son were jailed for five years each on Thursday by the Sekhukhune Regional Court for killing her abusive husband.

Nkoto Franinah Selepe, 50, and her 30-year-old son Mtswatswala were sentenced on Wednesday for the 2010 murder, police spokesperson Constable Shaqelo Lesufi said.

They assaulted the husband after he abused his wife.

He later died in hospital.

"The police hope this will send [a] clear message to the community to report domestic violence to [the] police, and not to take the law into their own hands," Lesufi said.

    But in some areas - like my area in KZN, Police are very unreliable and useless when it comes to these issues. Their message is being sent through a very dangerous medium.
