Two men have been charged with the murder of South Aucklander Clayton Ratima.

The men, aged 31 and 32, will appear in the Manukau District Court today.

Clayton Ratima was dropped off at Middlemore Hospital on February 21 by Tribesman Motorcycle gang members. He had injuries consistent with having been severely assaulted.

He died three days later.

"The family and friends of Mr Ratima have been told this morning about the arrests we've made," said Detective Inspector F'aa Vaaelua, Counties Manukau Police.

"They're appreciative of the result achieved by the investigation team."
