Is money received from my mom (paid into my bank account via cellphone banking) taxable?

Sometimes my mother pays 5000 rand or 4000 rand in my bank account. This happens when I cannot afford some things and she wants to help me.

No this won't be taxable as it is considered support and not income earned.
