Mabura businessman stabbed to death

A Mabura businessman, Colin McLean, was found dead early yesterday morning with suspected stab wounds about his body.

The deceased, well known as ‘Archie’, ran a business place close to the Mabura Police outpost.

McLean, who lived alone, was well known in Linden where he attended school and was at one time a foreign currency dealer at the MacKenzie Market.

He is the father of one daughter, who is in her mid to late twenties and who has been living in Canada for a number of years.

McLean was known to be an outgoing and freehanded person, who would entertain his several acquaintances with alcoholic beverages whenever he made periodic trips to Linden to purchase stocks for his shop at Mabura.

It is said that McLean, who is also known as Colin Archibald, ran a thriving business and he recently bought a car.

His father died in November last year while his mother died this January.

Upon hearing of McLean’s death, one of his acquaintances said that McLean had often stated that anyone, who tried to rob him would have to kill him because he would not give up his hard earned money willingly.
