Cape Town - Two men arrested for the alleged murder of a doorman at the popular Cape Town pub Beerhouse on Long Street are expected to appear in the Cape Town Magistrate's Court on Monday.

On Friday, Western Cape police spokesperson Andrè Traut said a police investigation into the murder of a 33-year-old Congolese national, Joe Louis Kanyana, led to the arrest of the two men, aged 20 and 21, on Thursday night.

"The suspects, who were arrested at different locations in the Cape Town CBD area, are due to make a court appearance in the Cape Town Magistrate's Court on Monday."

Traut said the investigation had yet to be finalised and the possibility of more arrests could not be ruled out.

Kanyana was stabbed to death at the pub last week Saturday night.

Beerhouse on Long said on its website that the incident occurred after he requested identity documents from a customer.
