Woman beaten by landlord over satellite dish
A woman identified as, Matshidiso Boikanyo, was beaten mercilessly by her landlord over a satellite dish in South Africa.
The incident occurred in Mabele-a-Podi, outside Rustenburg in South Africa.
It was gathered that the 34-yer-old woman was told by her landlord that the satellite dish was installed too low and should be moved higher, and this led to an argument.
Matshidiso told her landlord she did not have money and would do it when she got paid, but he ended up beating her.
The angry landlord allegedly said Matshidiso was not co-operative before he reportedly attacked.
“He provoked me. Did he expect me to say nothing? I could see he was in a bad mood when he approached me, but I didn’t think it would end up this way,” said Matshidiso.
Four men who witnessed the attack said Matshidiso deserved the beating because she seemed rude to her landlord.
But Matshidiso wants justice. According to her, her landlord undermines his tenants and calls them names.
North West police spokeswoman Colonel Adele Myburgh confirmed that a case of assault was opened. The suspect will appear in court on 4 March.
