A 42-year-old Tsholotsho man allegedly bashed his mother (62) with a knobkerrie to death in the presence of his daughter (4) when the woman had told him that she had used $500 he had given her to keep.

 Jabulani Moyo failed to control his temper when his mother, Catherine Ndlovu, told him that she had used his money for the family’s upkeep.

Moyo allegedly had been giving his mother money earned from doing menial jobs from 2014 to keep for him.

He allegedly struck her several times on the head using a knobkerrie, leading to her death.

Chief Gampu confirmed the incident yesterday.
