Bloemfontein - A man has been killed over a few sips of beer in Thabong in the Free State, police said on Monday.

Sergeant Tlalanyane Pakela said the 20-year-old man refused when asked to share his beer on Sunday afternoon.

"He told the suspect to buy his own beer as he was not going to share with him."

A 28-year-old man who had made the request pulled a knife and stabbed the beer drinker in the neck. He died on the scene.

The attacker was arrested, and was expected to appear in the Welkom Magistrate's Court on Tuesday.

      VERY Strange. Ppl dont know you work for things. He didnt want to buy his owwn beer... This dead young men had every right to refuse to give him his beer. It was probably not the first time looking at the reaction. He is used to being a parasite and getting drunk at other ppl's expence. LOCK HIM UP FOREVER amen

    And now he can go for a nice holiday on tax payers' money. Bring back the death penalty! He would not have killed someone if he knew that there was a chance that he could lose his own life in the process.

    What are we doing to protect our people as the the government of SA? People like that guy are those we do not need in this world, he can't live with other people. Let him be killed.

    About a week ago a very similiar incident was reported on News24 - except this was a 40 something year old that did the stabbing! What on earth is wrong with this country, its people and their morals???? Have they no human decency?
