A 51-year-old Malawian national, Mkwinda Adam Makanjira was on Monday beaten to death in South Africa outside a pub in Broederstroom in the North West, South African Police said.
The Police said they arrested two men suspected of beating to death Makanjira.
A third man allegedly involved in the attack was still at large, Brigadier Thulane Ngubane of South African police said.
According to Sapa report, the three were at Sundance Village Pub on Sunday when “one of them uttered a serious apartheid racial insult to kill a black person”.
Just after 7pm the men left the pub on foot and came across Makanjira.
“Allegedly one of the men grabbed a wooden object and attacked him, leaving him there in cold blood. A witness… watched helplessly when the victim’s face was crushed.”
Police found Makanjira on his back with a Bible lying nearby.
The two suspects, aged 23 and 26, were expected to appear in the Hartbeespoort Magistrate’s Court on Wednesday.
