The 34-year-old allegedly chopped the deceased to death with a sharp instrument during an altercation.

The Thabamoopo Magistrate’s Court has granted a man, accused of hacking his brother to death during an argument, R1000 bail.

Limpopo police said Marumpho Charles Tsheka, 34, appeared in court on Tuesday.

“It is alleged that the suspect chopped the deceased Khonola Koketso Tsheka, 32, with a sharp instrument to death after he called him out of the house to talk at their parental home. Police arrested him on the same day,” said police spokesman Lieutenant Colonel Moatshe Ngoepe.
