2011-12-20 10:56

Johannesburg - A teenager was arrested in Sithebe, near Mthatha, on Monday in connection with the fatal stabbing of another youth, Eastern Cape police said.

The two boys, both 18, were at a traditional ceremony that ended in the afternoon, Lieutenant Colonel Mzukisi Fatyela said.

"When it was done an argument started between the two and the one stabbed the other with a knife in the upper body. He died and could not be saved."

The alleged killer was arrested and would appear in court soon on a charge of murder.

      I would love to convince myself that the change of things for the worst in the country (in fact globally), minors getting pregnant, children doing drugs, children killing their parents, orphans increasing day by day, prostitution blooming, homosexuality increase, etc, is all caused by ANC. It’s time to that we get back to face the reality and stopping pointing fingers and blaming others for the problems that are collectively ours. The nation is sinking and we keep on blaming each other while we are on board on the same boat.

      yo Abel, look at who is responsible for this countries state, you have to be pretty retarted not to put the spotlight on the ANC/OUR GOVERNMENT, they are the ones responsible for the police are they not, they are the ones resonsible for a better schooling system ARE THEY NOT? I WILL agree with Shanna, because it is the truth!... This country is slipping and slipping BADLY, there is barely an education system to teach these kids, there IS NO judicial system to inflict fear into the hearts of these F-MORONS who think its OK to do what the hell they are doing because they DO NOT fear going to jail BEACAUSE they KNOW they will get away with it (and 99.9% of the time they damn well do get away with it) the kids of todays generation are turning into savages, this country is borderline LAWLESS...... So Abel think before you take another hit of whatever YOU are smoking

      Azande - The problem does lie with those that are in power. Politicians would rather be bribed than do an honest days work. Most of the police force would rather take a bribe than do the extra paper work. Criminals get let off the hook because the arrest wasn't effected properly. And no-one is held accountable for their actions. There is enough money pouring into politicians bank accounts to double the size of our police force or build more prisons. The ANCs time is now taken up by political infighting that the coutry is falling to ruin around their feet.

      @cameron which country is perfect? why there are police in each n evry state world-wide? people die everday in different ways its not about education bcoz educated ppl can kill as well and why in USA, CHINA still executing ppl death penalty does not mean we wont kill each other no military and police so we can all go there and live happily ever after. or is it Cameroon? think again Bro. AND HERE IS ANOTHER NEWS HEADLINES " A MAN DIES AFTER A HELICOPTER CRASHERS NEAR SUN CITY" its ANC

      @Abel the issue when I have an argument with someone, I dont stab him in the neck, torso, chest or whatever. We can argue sensibly, when that does not work, we can AGREE TO DISAGREE. Without killing someone. Nowadays, it is easier to kill than what it is to reason . . .

      Azande - 2011-12-20 12:51

      @kala, fair enough. i don’t dispute what you say about the government and the ruling party. However, I was citing a fact that this phenomenon is worldwide notwithstanding the input from gross incompetency of our government. Limiting the analysis of the cause only to the ANC and its government might be devoid of all facts thus misleading and detrimental to our own good. The societal landscape globally is almost unbearable.

      DiamondDirk - 2011-12-20 12:55

      @Abel - That is a ridiculous comment my friend. Yes, the world is screwed up, but all governments should take responsibility, including our own. We still have one of the highest crime rates in the world. Go look at the countries that do have the death penalty, in comparison to the rest of the world, murder is the lowest in those countries. Also remember, we are only 50 million people where USA is 300 million and China is over 1 billion. And what they hell has a helicopter crash got to do with a one kid killing another kid?

      You are out of your mind Shanna... This has nothing to do with ANC. Did Kotze kill his stepson becos of ANC? Did he ask his employees to help him rape his wife becos of ANC? Get a life and think like a human being. ANC has nothing to do with this.

    This outcome based education thing is killings us now. I for one will however be a bit more cautious when dealing with teenagers from now on!

  • Janice - 2011-12-20 11:44

    " he died and could not be saved"???????????????????

      Margeaux Hendricks - 2011-12-20 11:57

      I won't lie, I laughed when I read that... Not in disrepect or vulgarity. You know that there's a problem when terrible sentence structure overshadows the entire story!

      Cameronl - 2011-12-20 12:02

      sjaangoma not on hand to give heeeem help

      JohnnyBGood - 2011-12-20 12:52

      yeah, I also thought that is topsy-turvy. @Margeux, sad but true, ne ?

      Qheks - 2011-12-20 15:09

      LMAO...who said English was easy...lol

  • Andrew - 2011-12-20 11:44

    This is a violent country !! A life is worthless and when we look back at what was preached by the so called revolutionary movement it is not surprising at the present time brutality and murder is an every day occurrence.

      Kala - 2011-12-20 12:12

      The only thing getting cheaper in this country is human life.

  • Shirley - 2011-12-20 11:51

    Because of the leniant sentences,poor parenting and a general lack of morals life in South Africa has become "DISPOSABLE"

  • spartanx93 - 2011-12-20 12:42

    when ever you read about something traditional, it normally = death....

  • Shirley - 2011-12-20 13:34

    Abel: Judging by your spelling the anc hasnt given you a very good education! If we had police who werent corrupt,ministers who werent corrupt,politicians who werent corrupt and respect for human life in this country scenarios like this would not be happening! [note how many times corrupt comes up with regards to your anc?]
