A KZN man has pleaded guilty to murder in the Pietermaritzburg high court.

A KwaZulu-Natal man has come clean and revealed that he killed a woman because she went to his kitchen looking for matches and insulted his girlfriend.

Xolani Khomo of Eshowe said he acted out of anger.

“I followed her to the kitchen and I tried to pull her out of the house. A struggle ensued and I took the kitchen knife which was lying on top of the table and stabbed her several times in the neck,” said Khomo.
