Correctional Services said that “matters are under control” at Johannesburg’s Sun City Prison on Wed.
I am a woman aged 22. I was dating a man who is 26 and we have a son aged two.
We dated for three years and I thought he was the one - until he cheated on me without hiding it.
I left him last year and met a new man this year. I really love him. He respects, loves and trusts me and I trust him.
The problem is my ex. He keeps begging me to forgive him. He says he loves me too much to let me go.
I loved him too much once and I am not ready to go through another betrayal. I don't want to be with him.
I told him I don't want to be with him and that I am seeing someone else, but he just doesn't leave me alone.
Please help me. What should I do?

Sister, be firm with you ex and never stop sending him the same message: it is over and he should move on. He had his chances with you and wasted them.
He did not value you enough to stay faithful and now he has to take responsibility for his behaviour.
If you take him back, how on earth will you ever trust him again? Surely if he did it once, he can do it again?
It sounds as if your ex did not deserve you but the new guy does. Stick with the new guy. He loves and respects you and is making you happy.
The ex made you miserable. Stick with what is good for you.
Tell your ex to take a hike and leave you alone. Do not answer his calls, SMSes or e-mails. Do not answer the door if he comes to visit. Be firm and clear and tell him you want nothing to do with him.
If he won't back off, threaten him with a restraining order.
And before he departs for good, remind him that he has a financial and parenting responsibility towards your child and that you will hold him to it.
Why should the little one suffer over the behaviour of his parents?
