Nontokozo Jamela of Cowdray Park suburb is a tormented woman.
She is fed up of living with her brother who does not allow her to use any property in the family house.
Jamela also revealed that she was afraid of her brother Clever Sibusiso Nkala because he was very violent towards her.
Scuffles between the two are believed to have emerged after their parents died. Since then, Jamela has not had peace in the family house and hence decided to seek a protection order from the Western Commonage courts.
“I am the applicant in this matter. The respondent Clever Sibusiso Nkala is my brother. The respondent has been violent towards me since the passing on of our parents. We reside together in our family home. He has been threatening to do harm to me whenever there are trivial issues. The respondent does not allow me to make use of any property that our parents left. He continuously ill-treats me, and his wife has also become a part of it. I no longer feel free within our home,” said Jamela.
The matter, however, was struck off the roll after the applicant defaulted.
