Two women have been arrested for beating a man to death in Ncgobo, in the Eastern Cape, Mthatha police said on Monday.

"The man went to his girlfriend's house on Sunday night and started arguing with her and then assaulted her," said Lt-Col Mzukisi Fatyela.

"Together with her sister, they hit him back with everything they could find. They beat him with sticks, kicked him and even threw paraffin over him."

By the time neighbours called the police, the 40-year-old man was dead.

The sisters, aged 34 and 39, were expected to appear in the Ngcobo Magistrate's Court on Monday.
