A 35-Year-Old Man Stabbed To Death Last Night In Nkowankowa Outside Tzaneen

A nyaope sniffing man has stabbed and killed Kevin Nkateko Shingange (35) who was commonly known as Dog in Nkowankowa last night.

A man who seemed to be very high with drugs suspected to be nyaope and others allegedly caused havoc at the Van Royen tavern in Nkowankowa last night. He tried to stab a certain man who hails from Zimbabwe and Shingange tried to stop him as he knew him very well.

It was this time that the man stabbed Shingange in the chest and on the neck with a sharp instrument. Police were called to the scene but the suspect continued being so unruly and threatened to stab the police as well.

The police shot the suspect on his right leg to subdue him and he was then arrested. Meanwhile, Shingange was rushed to the nearby Nkowankowa Health Centre by the tavern owner.

It is alleged that the Health Centre did not have Oxygen tanks resulting in Shingange being rushed to Letaba hospital.
