Senzo Meyiwa’s killer revealed

The former Bafana Bafana captain’s cousin Siyabonga Miya made the claim as he was speaking to Newzroom on Tuesday following reports that the weapon used in the 26 October 2014 murder was found.

There hasn’t been any prosecution since the murder and the police admitted in the past the case is complex to solve.

In a new twist, News24 reported that the man who admitted to having fatally shoot Senzo is serving a 30-year jail term in a Johannesburg prison.
The man is currently incarcerated for killing an Alexandra taxi boss.

The National Police spokesperson Vish Naidoo denied the report saying they do not know anything about the weapon.

“If there is anything on the Meyiwa matter, everyone will be informed, it won’t be anyone’s scoop. The national police are the only ones speaking on the matter,” said Naidoo.

Another report published by the City Press implicated Senzo’s then-girlfriend Kelly Khumalo for masterminding the murder. Khumalo denied the allegations and was not arrested in connection to that report.

The current police information indicates that Senzo was at Khumalo’s Vosloorus home with Zandi, their mother Ntombi Khumalo, Twala, Meyiwa’s friends Mthokozisi Thwala and Tumelo Madlala, and Kelly’s then 4-year-old son, Christian, and Thingo, Kelly’s daughter with Senzo when gunmen stormed the house and fatally shot Senzo. Senzo’s family said they only learnt about the discovery of the weapon used in the murder in the media, they haven’t been briefed by the police.

Siya claimed the National Police Commissioner General Khehla Sitole assembled his own investigating team and knew his cousin was shot by one of the occupants of the house but there were no robbers involved.

“The police right now are supposed to be arresting Longwe Twala for killing Senzo. Senzo was shot by Longwe Twala, there was no one who entered the house,” Miya claimed.

He also called for the arrest of Twala and the police bosses for defeating the ends of justice.

Miya also claimed Senzo’s childhood friend Tumelo, who visited Meyiwa on a fateful day made a call saying, “Zandi’s boyfriend has shot Senzo,” as he did not know his name when he notified the Meyiwa family about the death of their son.

Siya also claimed Kelly was heard in the background screaming, ‘kodwa ngizothini ku maka Senzo (what will I say to Senzo’s mom)’.
