Port Elizabeth - A man has been arrested for allegedly clubbing to death his 28-year-old ex-girlfriend in Jeffrey's Bay, Eastern Cape police said on Monday.

"Tembela Jan, a municipal law enforcement officer, was on duty at a caravan park [on Sunday] when her 48-year-old ex-boyfriend appeared," said Lieutenant Colonel Priscilla Naidu.

She said the man was apparently angry and repeatedly attacked Jan with a plank. He ran away when Jan collapsed.

Naidu said witnesses tried to stop the attack, but to no avail. The police were alerted, but Jan was dead by the time they arrived.

The man was later arrested while walking back to Humansdorp and was identified by witnesses.

"The man was charged for murder and will appear in Humansdorp Magistrate's Court on Tuesday," said Naidu.
