Police spokesperson Major Pelonomi Makau said Emmanuel Moraila, 33, appeared for allegedly killing a 41-year-old man on Sunday at the premises of the Unit 9 clinic in Mmabatho. The accused was remanded in custody until Thursday, for bail application, Makau said.

“It is alleged that the suspect and the victim had a fight in the early hours of Sunday on the street, and the two met at the clinic at about 11am while there for medical treatment. An argument allegedly started again and the suspect went out and on his return, he allegedly stabbed the victim with a knife in his neck. The victim died inside the yard of the clinic.”
