Imbiber Stabs Drinking Mates
A 21-YEAR-OLD imbiber from Plumtree killed one drinking mate and another had to be attended to at a hospital after a misunderstanding which resulted in him stabbing the duo in Plumtree last week.
Matabeleland South province police spokesperson Loveness Mangena confirmed the death on Friday.
Ncube’s brother disarmed him.
The deceased was taken to Plumtree Hospital for post-mortem, while Mlungisi was also taken to the same hospital for treatment and was discharged.
The matter was reported to police, leading to Ncube’s arrest.
Meanwhile four brothers are in soup after a plan to rob their friend of his lottery money backfired leading to their arrest.
The four are facing an armed robbery charge involving R15 000 and US$50.
