A woman has been arrested for stabbing her husband to death in Zandspruit, west of Johannesburg, police said on Saturday.

"The victim died of multiple stab wounds," said spokesperson Captain Balan Muthan. 

ER24 spokesperson Ross Campbell said when their paramedics arrived at the scene they found government emergency services trying to save the man's life. 

He had been stabbed in the chest.

He had been taken to a garage on the edge of the massive informal settlement off Beyers Naude Drive so that help would be able to reach him quickly.

"He unfortunately succumbed to his wounds and was later declared dead on the scene,"said Campbell.

The circumstances of the stabbing would be probed by police.
