According to IOL, the gruesome death happened in Phahladira village in Limpopo on 4 February in the early hours of the morning. The teenager allegedly stabbed the victim with a sharp object in his upper body. The South African Police Service responded to calls from the tavern, and when they arrived, they found that the tavern owner had already taken the little boy to the local clinic. When he arrived at the clinic, he was certified dead. The police arrested the 15-year-old the same day, and he is expected to appear in court.

South Africans shaken by the murder

South Africans on Facebook were taken aback by how the teenager stabbed another teenager so brutally.

Hastings Banda said:

"I suspect a case of bullying until it reached this point. Parents should learn to check up on their kids for signs of bullying or of being a bully. It may help prevent either kid being dead or sent to jail."
