A 17-year-old boy is expected in court on Monday after he was arrested by Centane police for the alleged murder of a 21-year-old man on Saturday morning.

"It is alleged that local boys were enjoying themselves at Midange Locality, Qombolo Village, Centane," described Capt Jackson Manatha.

"A misunderstanding allegedly ensued between the suspect, aged 17, and the 21-year-old on Saturday, at about 05:00.

He has been handed over to his parents, who were warned to bring the minor to the Centane Magistrate's Court.
