Johannesburg - A man has been arrested for allegedly stabbing another man to death, Gauteng police said on Sunday.

The 33-year-old man was arrested on Friday night in Diepsloot, Warrant Officer Daniel Mavimbela said.

The man stabbed his former lover's boyfriend in his home.

Mavimbela said it was not clear why the man went to the other man's home because he was no longer in a relationship with the woman.

He was expected to appear in the Pretoria Magistrate’s Court soon.
