According to Inspector Mahoko, the argument between Ndlovu and Ncube quickly escalated into a physical confrontation. Ncube, in a fit of rage, retrieved a knife from his pocket and stabbed Ndlovu once in the neck, causing him to lose consciousness.

Following the stabbing, Ncube fled the scene, leaving behind a shocked community and grieving family members. The police have launched a manhunt for Ncube and are appealing to the public for any information that could lead to his arrest.

In response to the incident, Inspector Mahoko issued a plea for peaceful conflict resolution, urging members of the public to avoid resorting to violence in disputes. The tragic death of Narvel Ndlovu serves as a stark reminder of the devastating consequences that can arise from unresolved conflicts and the use of violence to settle differences.

The community of Silobela is reeling from the loss of a young life, and authorities are working diligently to apprehend the suspect and ensure that justice is served.
