Gold miner chased, stabbed to death by drinking partner


A man identified by the police as 26-year-old Peter James of Baramita, North West District (NWD) was stabbed to death on Friday by his drinking buddy.

The police statement noted that at about 15:00 hrs, James and the suspect were both consuming high-wine with water.

Later, at about 22:30 hrs, James and the suspect got into a heated argument which caused the suspect to arm himself with a knife which he allegedly used to stab the victim in his right arm.

James ran and the suspect gave chase. However, after covering a distance of about 200 feet, the victim collapsed and fell to the ground in front of a fenced yard, police said.

Public spirited persons stopped the suspect from inflicting any further injuries to the victim.

The suspect thereafter walked away from the scene and made good his escape on foot with the knife in his hand.

The victim was rushed to the Baramita Health Center where he was seen and examined by Medex Edghilo and admitted into the said Health Centre but died whilst receiving treatment.

His body will be transported to the Port Kaituma Mortuary for an autopsy.
