Durban - A man was arrested for allegedly killing his friend in Pietermaritzburg, KwaZulu-Natal police said on Monday.

Captain Thulani Zwane said the 26-year-old was arrested at the Imbali clinic on Sunday following the murder of Thamsaqa Ngubane, 25.

The two had been drinking at a tavern in Imbali unit 14 when they got into an argument. Ngubane apparently struck his friend over the head with a beer bottle.

"The suspect then produced a knife and stabbed Ngubane in his chest, seriously injuring him."

The two friends were taken to the clinic, where Ngubane died. Zwane said it was not clear what caused the fight.

    Seems like it was a bad week end to have a party (or not) with friends.

    Is that not self-defence?

      It is self-defence Bardy. However, one thing that concerns me as a South African is the way we easily resort to violence to sort out differences. Look at the officer who shot someone in bed for refusing to come with them to a local watering hole.
