2 men killed outside Polokwane
Johannesburg - Two unidentified men were killed in two separate incidents in Greenside, outside Polokwane, over the long weekend, police said on Wednesday.
A 26-year-old man was stabbed several times, spokesperson Lieutenant Colonel Moatshe Ngoepe said.
"He was taken to hospital by paramedics, but declared dead on arrival. The motive is unknown, but he was stabbed with a sharp object all over his body."
The second man, a 31-year-old, was found in a pool of blood. Passers-by called the police and paramedics. He had been shot several times.
"We can't say that the incidents are linked. The motive will tell us what exactly happened to the men," Ngoepe said.
The police urged local residents to help them identify the two men at the Polokwane state mortuary.
