Martha Mohlala from Klipgat in North West claimed her two brothers, both of whom are pastors, and their sons beat her.
She said the fight started in July after her brother’s wife died.

Martha said she then told her nephews not to attend her mum’s funeral when she died.
“Unfortunately, my mum Isabela Mohlala (85) died on 23 September,” she said.
“Before my mum died she had said my nephews shouldn’t attend her funeral.”
Martha said she wasn’t happy when she saw her nephews at her mum’s funeral.

“I went to my nephews’ dad and asked him why his kids were at the funeral. He slapped me and I fell.
“When my daughter tried to
intervene, he shoved her to the ground.”
She said the incident happened in front of mourners.
“My brother and his kids beat me until I fainted and was taken to hospital. I couldn’t even bury my mum.”

He claimed Martha was beaten by residents.
Police spokesman Constable Herman Moremi said an
assault case was opened.
“No one has been arrested.”
