Humiliated Chatsworth woman to wait for justice

#Chatsworth: The 53-year-old woman who was exposed on social media for a matter of alleged adultery will have to wait for justice

Fifty-year-old Samadhanum Andrew and Sarah Ishwarlall, 49, are to face charges of kidnapping, assault, crimen injuria and theft. They are in the dock following the viral videos that shamed another woman for allegedly having an affair with a married man.

Following their first appearance the duo were granted bail of R1 000.


What happened in the videos? In case you missed it

In the video, a woman is interrogated by another angry female who threatens her and demands answers over an alleged affair with a younger man.

Social media users have largely condemned the offensive video where this elderly woman is aggressively taunted and shamed.

The visibly shaken and terrified victim is taunted and sworn at as she is forced to admit to the alleged affair. A female not visible in the video who is apparently the wife is heard in the background suggesting that the video be uploaded to Facebook.

Bail conditions for the two included that they do not attempt to communicate or harass State witnesses. The case has been remanded to June 24 for further investigation.
