Johannesburg - A 52-year-old Soweto man died after being stabbed in the stomach by a friend in a shebeen, Johannesburg police said on Wednesday.

Warrant Officer Kay Makhubela said a group of friends were having drinks at the shebeen in Zola 3, Jabulani, on Tuesday night when a fight started.

One of the men left, returned with a knife and stabbed his 52-year-old friend, leaving his intestines hanging from his stomach. He died later in hospital.

Police arrested a 50-year-old man who would appear in the Protea Magistrate's Court soon on a charge of murder.

    Do you get so drunk that you need to stab someone? What happened to a good old fist fight or are you just barbaric by nature?

      The real question is, why did he stab his FRIEND?

      I guess he got his point across in the end (pity it was a knife-point though).

    If someone stabs you with a knife, is he still your friend?

      Yes, but with a friend like that, who needs enemies?

    His buddy must of really pissed him off, that he cut his guts open. Perhaps he was hogging all the brandy.

    Nice to see how mature our old timers are, one would have thought people mature and get wiser with age.....another false colonial concept I suppose.

    Jeez, some friend. Publish his name. I definitely will not have a drink with him. Perhaps his drink was spiked. (No pun intended).
