Eight school pupils have been arrested in connection with the murder of an 18-year-old man in Umbumbulu on Friday, KwaZulu-Natal police said.

Aged between 17 and 19, they were taken into custody while at school, Colonel Vincent Mdunge said.

Sanele Phewa was assaulted and stabbed to death on Thursday by boys accusing him of criminal activities at the Sunduzwayo Reserve.

KwaZulu-Natal police commissioner Lt-Gen Mmamonnye Ngobeni said any form of vigilantism would not be tolerated.

The teenagers would appear in the Umbumbulu Magistrate's Court on Monday, said Mdunge.
