Man stabbed to death over illegal connection
A man who lives in Greenville, 17 London Rd, died as a result of a fight for electricity. According to a City Power source, the victim reportedly connected electrically to the suspect who was paying him monthly for electricity consumption. The suspect failed to pay and the victim demanded his electricity rental money, a fight ensued and the victim was stabbed with a knife and died. The suspect ran away, police are urging anyone with information that could lead to his arrest to come forward.
The informal settlement near GNF Church in Alex had barricaded London Road with burning tyres two weeks ago when City Power disconnected electricity. This incident has left a lot of South African citizens shocked because the suspect had no reason to kill the victim, considering the fact that he was the one who was wrong and was supposed to pay the victim many for the electricity that he has used up.
