The two are alleged to have had misunderstanding when the bar was closing around 10pm. The suspect then stabbed the deceased with a sharp object on the neck in front of eyewitnesses.

After being stabbed, the deceased attempted to run away only to collapse and die at a nearby Dineo Liquor Restaurant. The body of the deceased is at Sekgoma Memorial Hospital morgue awaiting post-mortem.

The accused was arrested at his homestead in Mokwena ward the same night.

In another case the Serowe police on Sunday arrested a man (30) and two women aged 25 and 26 years old for possession of dagga.

The trio was

arrested at a police roadblock at the Prisons junction. They were found in possession of 60 grammes of dagga packaged in small sachets hidden in the car boot under the spare wheel.
