Appeal for leads after Kuyga man murdered and alleged killer found murdered also

Port Elizabeth - SAPS Kabega Park is urgently seeking the community’s assistance regarding a double murder, which allegedly took place on Wednesday evening in the Kuyga informal settlement.

"It is alleged that on Wednesday, at about 20:30, the victim, Sakuthwani Tyaliti, age 34 years, and his girlfriend were inside their shack at the back of the main house in Kuyga when a suspect (34 years) kicked open the door of the shack," described police spokesperson, W/Off Alwin Labans.

"Tyaliti went to the door and an argument ensued. The suspect took out a knife and stabbed the victim in the chest and he died on the scene.

"The girlfriend ran out of the shack to get help."

Apparently the suspect (34) ran away and, at about 23:30, his burned body was found by community members, who alerted police.

"His body was found in the same area (Chiamera and Flathead Streets). Next of kin is yet to be informed."

W/O Labans said that any information can be communicated to SAPS Kabega Park detectives at 041-3976814.

"All information is strictly confidential."
