Durban - A man has been arrested for stabbing his elderly neighbour to death in an argument over corrugated iron, KwaZulu-Natal police said on Wednesday.

The 24-year-old man had an argument with Sevinah Mdunge, 62, in Inanda on Friday about corrugated iron which belonged to someone who had died, said Captain Thulani Zwane.

"The suspect... wanted to take the corrugated iron by force to build his house. It is alleged that the suspect pulled a knife and stabbed the victim 15 times in the body and head. She died at the scene," said Zwane.

He said the man then ran away and stayed with relatives in Ladysmith.

He was arrested at their house on Monday. A knife, which was believed to be the murder weapon, was seized.

He was expected to appear in the Ntuzuma Magistrate's Court on Wednesday.

      Yup, and some animals can even be trained. I, for one, would rather live next door to a trained chimpanzee than this feral beast and its single digit IQ.

    I think the government needs to answer the question why it is more important to have lavish parties and drive around in top of the range cars while the citizens of this country kill each other over rusty old corrugated iron.

    I've been thinking. But I can't think of a single animal that kills for no reason. The closet I get is the chimpanzee which are known to murder rival chimps from other troops For territory. I also know that dominant lions are known to kill lion cubs. In order to stay the dominant male. I'm sure there may be more,, but think about it. They are doing it for a reason. Whether it be for territory or dominance. We as humans kill for greed and revenge and sometimes just for no reason at all. What is this world coming too. That this aged person had to loose there live in such a terrible manner. I know I'm going to get gunned for this,,, but hey, its just my opinion.

    Animals kill for food. I wonder at what level of civilation we can categorize this guy.I agree with Nosiphom's sentiments.
