Port Elizabeth - A 16-year-old boy was stabbed to death by another youth in Willowvale, Eastern Cape police said on Sunday.

Captain Jackson Manatha said the teenager was stabbed on Friday by a friend who had been teasing him.

"It is alleged that the suspect cracked some jokes and the deceased did not like jokes," said Manatha. The youth was stabbed in the upper body and rushed to hospital by the attacker's' father but died on his way there.

The youth was arrested and was expected to appear in the Willovale Magistrate's Court on Monday.

    Another 'delinquent' who does not have the skills to resolve a problem without resorting to violence. Now he has killed someone and messed up the rest of his life - how 'barbaric' this is!!!

      Couldn't have said it better myself. There are far too many people that react violently in this country. Why?

      lacrimose.wolf - 2013-01-06 22:50

      Poor impulse control, no problem solving skills, an under-whelming sense of self and an over-whelming sense of rage

    There is a fine line between genuine joking and blatant cruelty of sick sarcasm that's only funny to the so called 'joker'. Its called bullying and can push a sensitive soul over the edge, so don't judge to harshly here.

  • tobydt - 2013-01-07 06:41

    So... what were the jokes?
