Johannesburg - A 41-year-old man was stabbed to death in Broederstroom near Hartebeespoort Dam, North West police said on Monday.

"The suspect took a knife and allegedly stabbed the victim several times," said Funani.

He was transported to a hospital in Brits, but died on arrival.

    What a stupidity way of killing someone over useless card game. That 59 year old madala was a murder before. I don't think he feel remorse for killing his friend.
