Johannesburg - A 17-year-old youth was arrested on Monday for a murder in Coffee Bay, Eastern Cape police said.

The boy was arrested after a 25-year-old man was stabbed to death at Xaba's tavern on Saturday.

“It's believed the teenager and the man had a quarrel after which the man was stabbed in his upper body. He died on the scene.”
