2009-08-26 00:00

A 24-YEAR-OLD man who raped and strangled his 55-year-old mother has been sentenced to 15 years’ imprisonment.

The man, accused of assaulting his mother with a sjambok and a walking stick before raping her and strangling her with the sjambok, was convicted of murder and rape at the high court in Ramsgate last week and sentenced to 15 years in jail for the murder and eight years for the rape. The two sentences will run concurrently.

The crime took place in March last year when the man had an argument with his mother about money and turned violent.
