Port Elizabeth - An 18-year-old man was murdered on his way to church near Butterworth, Eastern Cape police said on Sunday.

The victim and two friends were confronted by a group of youths in Cegcuwana village around 21:00 on Saturday, Captain Jackson Manatha said.

The boys scattered and the 18-year-old ran for help to a nearby homestead. A local resident found his body on Sunday morning. His relatives identified him.

"The deceased suffered upper body injuries and no suspect has been arrested, but we are confident that we are going to crack the case very soon."

His identity was being withheld as most of his relatives had not yet been informed of his death.

    That's what happens when you have a president who defiles God's house like Zuma did.

      This is what happens when you have a religious president. People go to church on Sundays. Religious people start killing one another and we get caught in the crossfire. C'mon Zuma. This country has a secular constitution. Stick to it.

    THIS IS VERY BAD, TO SEE TEENS DYING FOR NOTHING. I THINK THE GORVENMENT MUST PULL THEIR SOKS TO FIGHT AGAINST CRIME AND VIOLENCE ON OUR COUNTRY BECAUSE OUR PEOPLE ARE DYING EACH AND EVERY HOUR.

    I bet the victim was not black.Pls stop killing non-blacks.The non-blacks are victims in this country and no one is doing anything about it.Forward with the non- blacks forward!

      It doesn't matter what race this young man was, he's dead due to a criminal act. Hope the murderers get caught asap.

    How sad.

    Been reading many articles from South Africa, and I am quite disturbed at how lawless the country is! The Wild West was tame in comparison! It seems as if violent crime and rape is the order of the day in your country! All I can say is God speed to those of you living in those conditions!

    people who dont know Jesus, will talk bad about him... wen Jesus Christ does come for all his children ... the ones who talks bad about him will be the 1st to go to hell... and its so sad that a young man had to die, but he is with Jesus...his in a better place...

    How nice of your god to look after the ones who go to church for him, pfft... Probably his divine plan for his followers, whatever.. Spare me the bs
