Johannesburg - A 14-year-old boy will appear in Mankweng Magistrate's Court on Tuesday for allegedly strangling his grandmother, Limpopo police said.

The teenager allegedly used an electrical cord to strangle his 68-year-old grandmother during an argument, said Constable Moses Molepo.

She had apparently told him to switch off the television and do household chores.

The youth was arrested early on Saturday morning at Thune section, near the Woodbush Forest Reserve, said Molepo.
