Ghanaian Barber Stabbed to Death in South Africa Over Penalty Incident

The deceased, known as Yaw Owusu, is alleged to have gotten into an argument with several residents following Ghana’s victory over South Africa on Sunday.

However, the penalty decision caused debate, with several South Africans accusing the referee of deceiving them.

When a heated debate over the penalty’s legality erupted, Yaw Owusu, a Durban saloon employee, was stabbed.

Former King Faisal radio representative Obeng Boadu, who now lives in South Africa, revealed this.

“Yaw Owusu, a 39-year-old saloon owner, had a few fights with his apprentice before the game on Sunday, and the argument resurfaced on Monday morning after the penalty controversy, and he stabbed him to death,” he told Kumasi-based Fox FM.

“We’re currently looking for his relatives in Ghana.” Ghanaians in this country are under a lot of stress. Following their plea to FIFA, the South Africans have vowed to deal with Ghanaians here.

“We’re asking with authorities to come to our rescue here because things are about to get a lot scarier.” As I speak to you, I don’t believe Ghanaians are very safe.”
