Polokwane - A man was killed after stabbing his ex-girlfriend several times during a fight near Seshego, Limpopo police said on Monday.

The 19-year-old woman was with her boyfriend in Ga-Makgakga village on Sunday afternoon when her ex-boyfriend, aged 21, approached her, Warrant Officer Mothemane Malefo said.

"He asked to see her separately and an argument broke out between the two. The 21-year-old man pulled out a knife and stabbed the 19-year-old woman in the upper body."

The woman's new boyfriend then allegedly hacked the ex-boyfriend several times with a panga. He died on the scene.

The woman was admitted to a local hospital in a serious condition.
