JOHANNESBURG - A 30-year-old man has been arrested for allegedly killing his mother.

It's alleged that the 53-year-old victim from Emasayithini was last seen three days before she was reported missing on 26 December last year.

Her body was discovered in a long-drop toilet situated in her yard during a search conducted by members of the community.
