Eastern Cape police condemn acts of violence

Somerset East - Eastern Cape SAPS Provincial Commissioner, Lt General Liziwe Ntshinga, has strongly condemned the continuing brutal acts of violent crimes perpetrated in some parts of the Province.

"This condemnation follows an incident that occurred on Monday night between 21:00 and 21:45 at Somerset East," said police spokesperson, Colonel Sibongile Soci.

"It is alleged that the 53-year-old suspect had visited the deceased at his rental place when an altercation occurred and the deceased was fatally stabbed.

"The circumstances surrounding the incident will form part of the investigation."

Soci said that all role players were activated and the scene was visited.

"The suspect was arrested and will appear in the Somerset East Magistrate's Court soon on charges of murder."

He said that the police have opened a case of murder for further investigations.

"Members of the community are advised to seek professional assistance and intervention instead of resorting to murder", said Lt Gen Ntshinga.
