In his first X post, the man says that his mother experienced the worst Mother's Day this year when she discovered that the online gambling company Betway deducted R80,000 she had saved in her Capitec Bank account.

Mzansi appalled by young woman's gambling

Local internet users could not believe the woman's daughter had lost so much money.

@ngobeni_teemuh_ll wanted justice for the mother:

"That girl must be taught a lesson. Either she comes up with a plan to pay Mama’s money back (and she must pay back every cent) or open a case against her."
