Market Fight

Men arrested for fighting

The fight was in relation to a previous confrontation over land payments.

Both men who are first cousins started throwing punches which escalated to both of them taking out big machetes.

The incident took place at around 6am and shocked many early morning market vendors and buyers.

Fortunately the two were pulled apart by the crowds who handed them over to a passing police vehicle.

Police say both men will be charged with disturbing the peace and on separate counts of threatening with a deadly weapon.
