A man was arrested in connection with the murder of his younger brother in Qoboqobo Village, Centane, Eastern Cape police said on Saturday.

“It appears that there was a misunderstanding between the two brothers [on Friday] which resulted in the 25-year-old suspect stabbing his younger brother [22] to death,” Captain Jackson Manatha said.

“The 25-year-old suspect was arrested as he did not run away and is due to appear before the Centane Magistrate’s Court on Monday.”

A knife, believed to be the murder weapon, was recovered.
