A cousin of the late young Duncan Village boxer Thamsanqa Dubase says he is living in fear after the killing of the fighter.

The cousin, who asked to remain anonymous, said he had received death threats from unknown people he suspects are connected to the killing.

He said he believed they were targeting him because he would be able to identify them, though they had not yet been arrested.

"On Tuesday I was chased by the men on my way to school. They wanted to stab me. I ended up not going to school at all," said the dead boxer's cousin.

Dubase was walking with a friend near a shack at CC Lloyd township last Saturday morning when they were attacked by unknown men who stabbed him once in the chest. He died at the scene.

East London police said this week they were still searching for the culprits who are said to be in the area.

Police spokesman Superintendent Mtati Tana said yesterday that police were not aware of the death threats received by Dubase's cousin.

Tana advised the young man to report the matter to the police at Duncan Village police station.
