“He was declared dead on his arrival at the clinic and the police were called in. A case of murder was opened by Hillcrest police.

“Police then proceeded to the scene of crime to conduct the initial investigation and the suspect was arrested. He was charged with murder and will appear at the Pinetown Magistrate’s Court soon,” said Manqele.

The Hillcrest Station Commander Colonel Zama Mabaso commended the swift arrest of the suspect after the incident.
