A SUSPECT is expected to appear in the Kimberley Magistrate’s Court on Wednesday in connection with the murder of a 30-year-old man on the weekend.

Police spokesperson Sergeant Timothy Sam said the suspect was arrested following the death of a man at Alice Court at the Roodepan flats on Sunday, February 27.

“Preliminary investigations indicate that the deceased male was lying in a pool of blood after being stabbed by another male,” said Sam. “The suspect was arrested and will appear in court on Wednesday, March 2. Police investigations are continuing.”

HQuad neighbourhood watch secretary Fernando Visagie said he had visited the bereaved family to offer them support.

“Crime and drug use are spiralling out of control, while the police do not have enough resources and manpower,” said Visagie.
