Violent husband fined

MASERU – A Maseru man, Mohau Matlaeea, was this week slapped with a five-year jail term or a fine of M5 000 for assaulting his wife.

Half the sentence was suspended for two years on condition that Matlaeea did not commit a similar offence.

The court was told that Matlaeea violently assaulted his wife with a stick on March 5.

Evidence presented in court was that Matlaeea arrived home drunk and complained that his wife had violently slammed the door in his face.

He ordered his wife to take off all her clothes so that he could sjambok her.

When she refused Matlaeea began assaulting his wife with a stick all over her body.

Matlaeea pleaded guilty and asked the court to be lenient with him as he had admitted his wrongdoing.

The case was before Magistrate Litlhare Mashape. – Lena
