MOLEPOLOLE: A Mosarwa servant who has been battling with his master’s sister over a piece of land in Mosinki lands, near Molepolole is all smiles after the Customary Court of Appeal finally ruled in his favour, giving him full legal rights over a certain piece of land his grandparents had been living on for decades.

His former master’s sister Goitebetaswe Hirschfield had taken the matter to the Court of Appeal after the Molepolole Customary Court had ordered that the servant Tshupafalo Galebowe be granted the land. Galebowe was reportedly given the piece of land by his former master  Matsebanyane Bile.

In his ruling, judge Mothibe Linchwe stated that Galebowe was the rightful owner of the land. “Matsebanyane lived with Tshupafalo in the field and yard (Mekgoro) they built. When he was still alive, Matsebanyana gave his father’s worker’s son a plot that he is currently occupying and his parents are buried there. Hirschfeld only started harassing Galebowe following her brother’s death,” he said.
