Reading Time: < 1 minute

The case of a farmer’s wife who is accused of forcing her worker to drink liquid human waste and calling him the k-word will on Thursday resume in the Equality Court sitting in the Springs Magistrate’s Court in the east of Johannesburg.

Maria Leicester has denied all the allegations levelled against her family.

She will testify in the case of Joseph Mona.

The case revolves around whether the family’s conduct infringed on the farmworker’s right to human dignity, and whether their alleged utterances amounted to unfair discrimination.

Leicester, her husband and son are facing charges of crimen injuria, kidnapping and attempted murder.
