FRANCISTOWN: A parliamentary candidate who lost in the last general elections is in trouble with the law after attempts to chase her daughter from the family home.

Theresa Mmolawa, who stood and lost the Francistown East constituency under the ticket of the opposition, Umbrella for Democratic Change (UDC) last October, appeared in court on Friday over domestic dispute.  She is accused of having once again tried to chase her daughter from her homestead, defying an earlier court order baring her from doing so.

In the latest episode, Mmolawa faces an assault common charge after she allegedly poked her daughter Gosego Pumive Mmolawa, on the forehead at the former’s place at Molapo Estates on February 10.
