Beloved soccer megastar Senzo Meyiwa used to be gunned down in then-girlfriend Kelly Khumalo’s Vosloorus dwelling on October 26 2014. Six years later, on the anniversary of Meyiwa’s loss of life, the five accused in his killing looked at Boksburg Justice of the Peace’s court.
The investigation into Meyiwa’s loss of life has been plagued by shortcomings and ineffective ends, and the family of the slain Orlando Pirates and Bafana Bafana megastar have yet to hotfoot looking justice for his killing.
In 2020, Muzikawulahlelwa S’tembu Sibiya, Bongani Sandiso Ntanzi, Mthobisi Prince Mncube, Mthokosizeni Ziphozonke Maphisa and Sifikuhle Nkani Ntuli had been arrested for the murder.
Regardless of the arrests, lobby group AfriForum, which is helping the Meyiwa family with the case, has publicly stated that proof parts to a “mastermind’s involvement”.
At the accused’s final appearance on November 27, the trial used to be postponed to Friday March 5.
