Senzo Meyiwa’s brother speaks out on “hitman” claims

Six years after the death of goalkeeper Senzo Meyiwa, his family says they are still looking for answers. This is despite widespread reports that a hitman has claimed that Kelly Khumalo was the mastermind behind an alleged murder plot…
Speaking to All4Women, Sifiso Meyiwa, Senzo’s older brother said: “We only became aware of the reports when we saw the papers. No one told us anything.”

He went on to say: “There is nothing much we can say at this time. We’ll be convinced when the matter is in court.”

Senzo Meyiwa was gunned down at the home of his then girlfriend Kelly Khumalo in October 2014.
Over the years, authorities have made several assurances that there is progress in the case. Last year, Minister Bheki Cele hoped that the case would be solved by Christmas Day, but it was not to be.

Recent media reports allege that a hitman was nabbed in connection with the goalkeeper’s death. The hitman allegedly claimed that he had been paid by Khumalo to commit the murder. Khumalo would not be drawn to comment on those claims.

A disheartened Sifiso Meyiwa says: “There have always been reports about progress, but nothing ever happens.”

The family is disappointed that after all these years, no one has been officially charged and put on trial.
“Actually, we don’t even like talking about this thing because it brings so much pain,” concluded Meyiwa.

In the meantime, Kelly Khumalo remains at the centre of cyberbullying by some who believe she is not being entirely forthcoming with the truth about the events of the night that Senzo Meyiwa was killed.

Speaking to All4Women last month, Khumalo said that she is able to overcome the blows because her strength comes from her relationship with God.

As for cyberbullies, she said: “Heal. Seriously, heal. Don’t use me as a template of what is not right in your personal life.”
