Willowvale - Two men accused of killing a teenager appeared in the Willowvale Magistrate's Court on Monday.

Thanduxolo Ntombi, 20, and Thelelani Tywakava, 22, were warned to appear in court again on March 11.

They were arrested on Friday after being implicated in the death last week of a teenager in the Nyumbeni area, said Captain Jackson Manatha.

He said one of them was believed to have been in a relationship with the youth's cousin. They saw him with her and thought he was her new boyfriend.

“When the 19-year-old man returned from accompanying his cousin, he met with the two suspects. They 1/8were 3/8 armed with sticks and bush knives and attacked him,” said Manatha.

A passerby found him and took him to the Thafalofefe hospital, but he later died. - Sapa
