Johannesburg - A man has been arrested for killing his friend in an argument over a woman in Mankweng, Limpopo police said on Monday.

The 21-year-old man stabbed Maredi Letsoalo six times at a tavern on Saturday night, Constable Moses Molepo said.

"An argument started when Letsoalo arrived at the tavern and demanded to know why the arrested man was sitting with his lover at that time," he said.

"Letsoalo's cousin tried to intervene, but he also suffered a stab wound during the fight."

Letsoalo, 23, died at a local hospital. His cousin was treated and discharged a few hours later.

Police arrested the man in the area on Sunday morning. He was expected to appear in the Mankweng Magistrate's Court on Tuesday.

    How sick do you have to be to stab someone six times. Maredi should have known better not to approach the Perpetrator about a woman, I mean if she can be with another man at whatever that time of the night was then it mean she is either not married(not yours) or she just lost interest in you. One other point if you found her going to taverns, and especially if you probably proposed her there how you gonna stop her from going there.Man Man look now it cost your life and she is now probably gonna enjoy with the Perpetrator while she is out on bail. Or even worse just deny she was ever your girlfriend/wife because you are no more
