A drunken 50-year-old man who played his radio loudly while other family members were sleeping allegedly stabbed his sister to death when she asked him to turn down the volume.

Police said the man, from KaNyamazane in Mpumalanga, was drunk on Sunday night and was dancing alone to the music.

Captain Phillip Fakude, a KaNyamazane police spokesman, said: "When the victim asked him to turn down the volume he drew a knife and stabbed her once in the chest, killing her instantly."

His sister, 41, was a teller at the KaNyamazane post office.

The devastated family, who described her as a "people's person" and the suspect as "non-violent" blamed the tragedy on alcohol.

The suspect, whose name is known to Sowetan, ran and hid in a neighbour's house. Other neighbours found him and assaulted him before calling the police.

He has been hospitalised and will appear in court on a murder charge when he is discharged.
