A fatal fight broke out during a beer drinking session between two men in Nyamandlovu last week, leaving one man dead. 21-year-old Godwin Mlotshwa has been arrested and charged with murder after he allegedly struck Obert Ngwenya on the head with a log during an argument.

According to police, the two men had been drinking beer together at a homestead in Seafield Village on July 19 when an argument erupted between them. In a fit of rage, Mlotshwa is said to have grabbed a log and hit Ngwenya over the head.
