A 63-year-old Limpopo man is alleged to have stabbed a love rival half his age to death at the weekend.
William Mafokwane, 28, was apparently attacked in Senita village, outside Mokopane, on Sunday. The two had an argument over a woman before the attack happened. Mafokwane died of his stab wounds in hospital on Monday.
Police spokesman Colonel Moatshe Ngoepe said the 63-year-old had fled to Gauteng after the incident.
"We have received information that the suspect in this murder case has since fled to Tembisa and a manhunt has been launched for him," Ngoepe said.
Mafokwane was stabbed with a knife in the back, allegedly by the older man. He was then rushed to a local clinic from where he was transferred to hospital.
According to the deceased's sister, Sarah Mafokwane, the suspect had visited their home earlier on Sunday looking for her brother.
"The man was so angry that he threatened to wipe out the whole family if we did not tell him where my brother was."
