Zimbabwe man held for fatal fight

JOHANNESBURG – A 22-year-old Zimbabwean man has been arrested in Hillbrow for punching another Zimbabwean to death, Johannesburg police said on Monday.\r\n

The two men knew each other well. They were "homeboys", said Captain Bhekizizwe Mavundla.

He said a 19-year-old Zimbabwean was fetching his television stand from the other man when a fight broke out on Sunday.

He collapsed after being punched and was declared dead on arrival at hospital.

In a separate incident, two more Zimbabweans were arrested on Friday night for murder.

Mavundla said the 27-year-old man and his 22-year-old girlfriend stabbed three Zimbabweans in an argument at a bar in Berea last Sunday. One of the men died in hospital. – Sapa
