A married man has been slapped with a restraining order to stop any form of contact with his ex-girlfriend.

The restraining order issued by Principal Magistrate, Gofaone Mosweu, against Nkagelang Mothanka on Tuesday instructs the married man to stop visiting or communicating with his ex girlfriend Segametsi Matara.

This came after Matara through her attorney Kabelo Nkwe applied for an urgent restraining order against the married ex-lover. It is alleged that Mothanka did not take kindly when Matara told him that she does not want to continue dating him, arguing that he has spent a lot on her.
