National police spokesperson Assistant Commissioner Paul Nyathi yesterday confirmed the murder and arrest of the suspect.

“On August 5 at around 5pm, two men were involved in a dispute over who was next to play a game of snooker. They exchanged harsh words and one of them took an okapi knife from his car, before stabbing the other on the chest and he died on the spot. The accused was later arrested and the okapi knife was recovered by
the police,” Nyathi said.

A source close to the matter, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said the stabbing was unfortunate.

he was under the influence of drugs,” he said. Newsday
