Viral video of elderly abuse sparks outrage from Cape communities

We have recently come across a video making the rounds on social media where an elderly lady is seen as being handled by what appears to be her grandson. In the video the grandson, who seems to be under the influence of something is seen puling his ma while begging her for a R10. It is believed that this lady, who has since died of circumstances unrelated to the incident lives in the Strandfontein area. Now unfortunately this is one of the many unseen incidents of elderly people being abused by their grandchildren abusing them in some way, be it by stealing from them, insisting they give them money or simply verbally abusing them.
