Despatch police on Thursday arrested a 28 year-old Metro Security guard for killing 26 year-old, Sandile Kewuti, at the company’s premises along Hogg Street, in Deleviw, Despatch, just outside Port Elizabeth.

The suspect will appear before the Uitenhage Magistrate's Court on Monday facing a charge of murder.
