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
